wayne3597--I presume you have clicked on a docx file and want to open it.  That looks like a pretty standard message to me.  Just click the choice you want.  If you distrust the source scan with your antivirus first.  (Right click on the file, itself and Scan with AV.)

Or is there something else you want to know.

Ah, now I see .  This follows http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Internet_Email/Web_Browsers/Q_28130152.html#a39172468
In that thread you were trying to open a webpage but were getting a message about opening a docx page.  Now here you are trying to open an Outlook file but again are getting a message about a docx file.  This sounds like you have some corruption of the default program associations.  
Control Panel|Default Programs|Set your default program.  What do you see for Internet Explorer and Outlook?  Change as necessary.

wayne3597--Are you saying you cannot click on one of the three choices and get rid of the window?  
If so, what did you do just prior to getting that window?
Have you scanned for viruses and malware?
Reread my last post slowly and answer those questions as well.
