Outlook 2000 freezes up when opening an attachment

Hello EXperts!

When I open an e-mail within Microsoft Outlook 2000, and it has the attachment at the bottom of the message, I try to double-click to open the attachment and immediatelly Outlook freezes up and stops responding. This has been happening for about a week now and the way I get around it is by right clicking on the attachment and saving it to my hard drive some where. Then I can go through and open it directly, but not through Outlook. I have restarted the computer, it is not just one or two e-mails it is every single attachment.

Thanks for the insight here.

I would like to try and avoid having to reinstall office, but if that is the only option that you guys see available, I suppose I could do that.

It appears that it worked (the one where you edit the registry). I will continue to work with it and then get back to you.

P.S. Thanks!

Sorry, Yes...it did work. I created a registry entry that allowed certian programs and documents to open within Outlook.

Credit goes to you war1!
