    I often get emails with pictures and letters and when I try to open them I receive the following printout: This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an associattion in the folder options control panel. I'm lost as to create that association. Can you help? Thanks Jackie B.

    if you could give us the extension of the files you're having problems with it'd make helping you easier. .jpg? .pdf? .doc? stuff like that

    You can also download and install "Open Office" to allow you to read and write files that are used in Microsoft's Office package (at least those prior to the release of Office 2007 which uses a different default format). If you get a .DOCX, or equivalent Excel 2007 file, extension then you have use the file converter available from Microsoft. I don't think Open Office directly supports MS's newest file extensions yet but I could be wrong.

    The link above will lead you to the Open Office web pages. There you can download the software. It is free. This is what is called "open source" software. That means that although there is a license you must agree to, there is no cost to install and use the software.
