Outlook Express 6 Dat files

by mrsubway / April 3, 2008 12:58 AM PDT

Someone is trying to send me a word file, and it keeps coming to me as at00135.dat! I cannot open the file, and I have OE set to accept all attachments. I have no program running that should be blocking attachments.

He has sent the same file to others and they have received it.

Most often, att*.dat files are simple small text-files added by the mail server to tell you something. Save it, look at the size in bytes and open it in Notepad. What's the size, and what does it say?

How is the attachment called in the web-mail? Can you save it to your hard disk? What happens then if you open it with Word?

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?
