Microsoft Office Outlook % 1 is not a valid Win32 application

Recently something must have changed in Outlook as I have always been able to "test" an e-mail attachment before sending to a recipient. Now I constantly get the pop up "Microsoft Office Outlook % 1 is not a valid Win32 application' In order to test the attachment I log on to my e-mail provider, generate the e-mail there then test the attachment which almost always works. I then send the e-mail from the providers site and no longer use Outlook. Is it my imagination or are my Microsoft programs always changing without any of my doing?

I/m not sure what you mean by 'testing' an attachment. If you are enabled for automatic updates, there are critical and security fixes to your system that sometimes affect the way things work, but you can also be affected by malware intrusions on your system...
Are you running an up to date antivirus and anti-spyware program? If so, and you are confident that you have a clean system, take a look at the following:

This may be the workaround for your problem.
Without more specifics, I'm afraid that's the best I can offer.
I hope this solves your problem. If so, please take a moment to rate this post. Thanks!

I cant format my window because when i click that will give me that ''not a valid win32 application''


Exactly what are you trying to format? Usually you cannot/don't want to, format the drive you are working on? "not a valid win32 application" usually means, that the program you are trying to run, is a DOS based program. Formatting is usually done via DOS.
