In the future -- and I'll just say right now this has nothing to do with solving your current problem -- if you get an email that doesn't open, that is usually a warning indicator of a boobytrapped message. DO NOT try and open them, instead send a message to the sender, asking them to resend. Probably better than half the time, they will have no idea what you're talking about, claiming to have never sent a message. That tells you that the message you received from them is indeed boobytrapped and designed to make your system the next victim. And if they did send you a message, it shouldn't be difficult for them to simply send it again.
I feel real dumb about this I got an e-mail it would not open so I was clicking I got into notepad with a lot of letters and can't get back to default in vista.
