Using I.E. 5.5, Adobe Acrobat Reader 4.0.
No past problems in opening attachments. Two just received cannot be opened.
Copied to Word the document display is in programming script.

You may have just got a virus. Some viruses (Virii I suppose) are designed to look like regular attachments, but when they're opened they execute the virus script, and sometimes you don't see anything actually happen (like the file doesn't open).

Following your comment. PC Cillin has not deteted a virus but I believe I have one. Using senders addresses I have received mail from with topic line. But no text in message. Two attachments each time. The second with no bytes. Since yesterday I have had three such messages.
