Outlook 2010 & 2013 Chaning attachment names

Last Modified: 2015-03-05
We have a situation where outlook seems to be changing all attachment (sent and received) so that when you attempt to open them, the Windows OS can't open the file.
For example.
Create an email, attached a quote as a quote.pdf....when outlook attaches and send the file, it's now renamed to quote.pd_
There are no macro's in place, this update is slowly creeping it's way through my work pc's (it was only 1 machine 2 weeks ago, we now have over 10 with the same problems).
