Running Outlook 2000.  Windows 98 - No Exchange server.  Several weeks ago the program began intermittent displays of attachments.  Usually get a message sateing the file cannot be opened since it cannot find the file.  Othertimes it opens it in c:\windows\temp folder.  

Any suggestions?  I have looked everywhere for the solution on MS but it appears this needle is lost in their haystack.

Greetings, ukbusiness!

If you did a recent Outlook update, the update may have blocked attachment. Here is how to fix
