Unable to scan email attachment for viruses

I downloaded a job application on another computer (Win 2000). I opened it in Open Office and saved it as ***.sxw. I emailed it to myself to finish on another computer (Vista). I got the message that it was unable to be scanned for viruses before I downloaded it. It's not password protected. I thought this was strange. Any input about this?
