Can someone Help !

I'm using Outlook 2002 with SP2 "Just" installed &
it uses Word 2002 SP2 as it's Editor.

Now when I try to open "Any" of my Attachments that have been sent from me the following Error Message appears...
"This object is corrupt or is no longer available"

They opened a Day ago !
( Re-Booted last Night, this Morning this!!!)

Also when I try to "Send and Attach" a new 'Document'
the Icon appears, but when I try to 'Open It' the
same message as above appears !
"This object is corrupt or is no longer available"

Also it does not come thru as an "Attachment" at the other end.

The is 'File Size' of the *?.doc is correct when
viewing the Email Account remotely, but has warning
of possible Virus ? (MailWasher).

Then when I download them into Outlook 2002 SP2 no
"Attachment" is visable?

I have used the "Tool" to allow 'Most' useable
File Types and that was setup long ago.

Try to open ANY old or new Emails with Attachments...
"This object is corrupt or is no longer available"

Yes the Email file is a '.pst' type , but I can still
read all the Emails, but can not open any "Attachments"
that I have sent or recieved!
(.pdf, .doc., .wps, .gif, .jpg,etc...)

Just tried the Inbox recovery tool and it was okay!
(Still has above problem)

Any Help would be "Greatly" appreciated.

Kind Regards,
Grant Taylor.
