ZM9 is a zone alarm file extension. Once Zone Alarm is installed you should have no further problems. If zone alarm is installed then associate the file to it by browsing for the .exe file of Zone Alarm.

Had windows 7 reinstalled and Adobe,but can't get document attachment to open in emails. it opens up on windows media center how do i get it to open with Adobe instead


Save the file to your desktop first. Then right click and select open with. Find the program you want to open the attachment with and select 'always use this program for this type of file'. That will reset the file association and you will then be able to open them from your email in the future.

Cannot open my emails


Which email acc.????...
Windows Live Hotmail allows users to view attachments within a Web browser or save them to the system's hard drive.
If Hotmail can't open an attachment, the problem lies with an incompatible file format or Hotmail's automatic blocking service.
You may need new software for opening unfamiliar formats, while blocked files are permanently inaccessible from within Hotmail.
Accessing these files requires action by the sender or forwarding the file to a different email client. Incompatible File Format
Occasionally a sender may attach a file that simply doesn't work with any software you have installed on the system.
Attempting to open the attachment will result in a "Windows cannot open this file" message or similar error display.
Many programs use very specific file formats that don't operate with most other software, such as Photoshop's PSD image files or Microsoft PowerPoint's PPT files.
Ask the sender to convert the file to a more widely compatible format, or install the appropriate software on the system to open the attachment.

Blocked Attachments
Hotmail blocks attachments it believes may contain unsafe or otherwise malicious code.
This includes any and all executable file types, including MSI, EXE, HTML, STC and COM files, along with many others.
Attachments blocked in this way result in a "Windows Live Hotmail has blocked some attachments" message when viewing the email.
While this service does block many real threats to system security, Hotmail may occasionally deny access to an item from a trusted sender.
Unfortunately, these files become permanently inaccessible once blocked by Hotmail, and accessing them requires using a workaround outside the Hotmail application.
Only attempt to access attachments you trust as safe.


Forward Workaround While Hotmail cannot open blocked attachments, it allows users to forward the message with the blocked file still attached.
Send the file to a different email client, and open the attachment using that account instead. Note other clients may have different security measures, but some will still block access to executable files and other potentially harmful data.

Compression Workaround

Ask the sender to package the attachment into a ZIP, RAR or other compressed file format before attaching.
Hotmail will not block any file type located inside a compressed archive.
Both Windows and OS X can create compressed ZIP files, and free utilities such as Zipeg and 7-Zip can create many other types of archives as well.
Some email clients, such as Gmail, will not allow users to send some file formats, even when packaged into an archive file.

When receiving an email with attachment after downloading attachment it will not stay open


Right click the file and extract all,most likely if it has an attachment its a .zip file and it needs to be extracted to associate itself with the proper program.This is one of many solutions ,would need more details to tell you anymore such as operating system,email client,web browser, etc.If the file you are trying to open is a .pps file,for example, then you would need to download the power point viewer to view it,power point is not a default program on windows operating systems.Check and see what the extension is on the file eg.(such as).exe,.zip,.jpg,etc.ok hope this helps good luck

Can't open .pdf file email attachments from Windows Mail (Vista)


Send yourself another known working PDF attachment and see if the same thing happens. If it does, post back. If not, then it most likely means there's either a naming issue with the problem PDF, or it is just corrupt enough to give you troubles when opening from email.

Need to set an association to open a file


The first thing that you have to find out is what type of file is it. Normally if the file is not associated with any program on the computer then that means that the program is not installed. To find out the type of program that it is you can go to the link below then check the file extention. The file extention by the way is the letters after the period in the filename. EX. hello.DOC the capital letters is the file extention
