.lnk attachments

Hi, I am running XP on an Emachines desttop and have developed an Outlook problem.

For about two days, If I attach a picture to an outgoing email it mails as a .lnk file and the recipient cannot open the attachment.

If I remail right away it does not happen and the picture will go out as a .JPG

I checked on Google and it says that part of the problem may be that I am set up to show hidden files.

I would like to fix this and still show hidden files. I just do not want to keep mailing pix and have them not viewable.

Can you please help?-Tony
