What kind of attachment you are trying to open sir? For example, If the attchment is a PDF file and you do not have Acrobat Reader installed in your computer, then you get that option. Please let me know the kind of attchment so that i can guide you properly.

Thanks

The open with comes up when i try to open anything


The "open with" action is activated automaticlly when you don't have a file or command associated, with the program that you wish to open and run that file or command. For Windows Xp Pro look at this link to associate a file with a program. http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/associate_file_with_program.mspx?mfr=true

This message indicates a virus on your computer. The only way for you to open the drives is to right-click on the selected drive and open. Download Autorun Virus Remover which can resolve your issue. You can also try to download AVG Free Edition. Make sure to update both anti-virus Softwares.

Please let me know if the information provided has been helpful.

I don't seem to be able to send photos by Kodak Easyshare e-mail even though I am on line and the address is correct.


Ditch Kodak Easyshare and just use your email program:
Attachment basics When you send photos in e-mail, the photos go along for the ride as attachments, just like any other file you add to an e-mail.
To attach a photo in Outlook:
  1. Click New to open a Message window.
  2. Fill in the To and Subject boxes as usual and type any message you wish to accompany the photos.
  3. Click Insert File (the paperclip icon), locate your file through the Insert File box, click the file's name and then click the Insert button. If you wish to add multiple files from within the same folder, hold down the Ctrl key while clicking multiple files, then click the Insert button.
  4. Repeat Step 3 for any other files you wish to attach.
  5. Click Send.
In Outlook Express:
  1. Click Create Mail to open a New Message window.
  2. Fill in the To and Subject lines and type in your message.
  3. Click the Attach button, locate the file in the Insert Attachment box and click Attach. Use Ctrl-click to select multiple files.
  4. Click Send.
In Netscape Mail:
  1. Click New Message to open the Compose window.
  2. Fill in the To and Subject lines, and type in your message.
  3. Click the Attach button or, in Netscape 6, click in the empty Attachments box.
  4. Select your file in the Enter Files To Attach dialog and click Open.
  5. To attach multiple files, repeat Steps 3 and 4.
  6. Click Send.

Do you get a dialog box saying that the file can't be opened? and down the bottom is a button with which you can select a program to open the file with?

If yes, click on this - Acrobat may not be listed (hence the problem). There should be a Browse button, click on this an work youur way to C:\Programs\Adobe\Acrobat (or some such naming) enter the Acrobat folder and find the Acrobat EXE file - click on this and say yes to all the prompts on your way out. This will now associate Acrobat with PDF files.

Hope this works.
