c.htm attachments in outlook

I use outlook with lotus connector as my email client. When opening c.htm attachments, I get the following error. Cannot create file: c.htm. Right click the folder you want to create the file in and then check the properties on the shortcut menu to check your permissions folder.
I used to be able to open these attachments with no problem and all other attachments open with no problem.

Greetings, jsolomon4808 !

New security update had prevented certain attachment from open.  You can modify the security with the following registry edit

Outlook Attachment

Best wishes!

Although the answer was close to the problem I had it led me in the right direction to find the correct solution. The solution provided was for attachments that were blocked. The problem I had was the attachment would not open. The solution for my problem was in the same area of the registry. hkey_current_user\software\microsoft\office\11.0\outlook\security. The string outlooksecuretempfolder value was pointing to a folder I did not have access to. I changed it to the temporary internet files folder and now the attachments open normally.

Thanks for your help
jsolomon, glad you can open attachment now.
