Hoping some of the computer experts on here can help with a problem I have.
Just recently my computer running Windows 7 and IE 10 (I think) has started displaying an error message when I receive attachments to emails. It is saying that the attachments are of a type considered dangerous and they have been cancelled. The attachments concerned are Word Docs. They are coming from regular contacts. Any attachments in other formats (eg PDF files) open without problem.

Any ideas anyone?

Thank in advance for any assistance.
