Has anyone found a solution to opening wmv files in OE-6. My associations
are set and I can open them from my hard drive but I can't in OE6.

e-mail attachment scanning and it didn't help.

What happens when you try to open WMV attachments? Post any error
messages in their entirety.

What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than
Defender)? What third-party firewall (if any)?

Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you
bought it)?

Tip: Disable email scanning by your anti-virus application. It
provides
no additional protection, it may be causing the problem, and even
Symantec
says it's not necessary:

QP
Disabling Email Scanning does not leave you unprotected against
viruses
that are distributed as email attachments. Norton AntiVirus
Auto-Protect
scans incoming files as they are saved to your hard drive, including
email
and email attachments. Email Scanning is just another layer on top of
this. To make sure that Auto-Protect is providing the maximum
protection,
keep Auto-Protect enabled and run LiveUpdate regularly to ensure that
you
have the most recent virus definitions.

Are these WMV files attachments or embedded in an HTML message?

If the latter, are you creating these messages and then sending them
to
yourself as a test?

Save the attachment to your HDD. Right click on it and Open With |
Choose
Program. Select Windows Media Player and then check the box:
Always
use
this program to open this kind of file. This should enable you to
open
these attachments in the future.
