"New computer". Can I ask?

Why isn't this a problem you take up with the new computer's maker?

I guess the reason is you wait for ever on hold then you get someone you can't understand that lives in India. I will continue to try to get help from the computer maker.

Can I ask?

Why would you put up with such and if they are that bad, why not pack it up and ask for a full refund?

OE 6: Tools->Options-> Security, then ;

Ensure that the option, "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus" is not checkmarked. Also you will see references to "Download images", and "Block images" in there too.
