    Hello to all, I need some help from some of you. Friends send me e-mails
    sometimes that has short movies in them. The media player plays most of
    them. The ones that wont play has a pop up that says, This file does not
    have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an
    association in the folder option control panel. I guess I am not smart
    enough to do this myself. I would appreciate any help from you people that
    are more savy than me.

    Thanks a lot

    Did you try the suggestions you received when you asked this exact same
    question three days ago?

    If the attachments are Power Point Slides or Quicktime video, you'll need to
    have those programs to your computer in order to view the attachments.
