Attachments in Outlook Express

by tcyw20 / April 19, 2007 10:05 PM PDT

I feel frustrated when Outlook Express removed all my attached files in my email by claiming that the attachments were unsafe.

May I know how to stop Outlook Express from doing so in order that I can read the attached files

Tony, Open Outlook Express>Tools>Options>Security tab and uncheck "do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that potentially could be a virus", click Apply/OK.

Without saving them and virus checking them first.

Even if they are from family and friends, or other trusted sources, do not trust the attachments.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
