JEP, hi.

What do you mean by 'cannot open attachments'? What happens exactly; Any errors?

Further elaborate in the situation for better results.

Also, providing your PC specs will be helpful.

Can not open any attachments. Like when I open the how to geek e-mail, anything I click on gives me the message of
The operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer pleas contact your administrator.

Does that answer your question?

Don't use Outlook but I remember using Outlook Express and it would not open attachments unless you allowed it to by unchecking "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened" in the tools menu, options, security.
WinMail in Vista also has this option.

Don't know if this is of any help, just a thought.

Ifound on the net a person had the same problem and with the same error mssage.
What they die was install google crome and then tried there e-mail outlook 2003
And it worked just fine. so I uninstalled the google and tried the e-mail again.
It works just fine.
So if anybody has this problem tell then to install Google Crome the uninstall and try the e-mail again.
It should work just fine

Fortunately I don't pull faces in public.

If the attachment is attached, why not 'save as' the attachment? Drag it to the desktop?

Win 7 and Office 2003 does have a problem

As Outlook is a client, how does Google Chrome have an influence?

It was probably an errant File association which Chrome reset when installing.
