  1. This thing is pissin me right off. I took ages to download this important file of my m8 through msn. I then clicked on the open button and it said it has been blocked as it has reconised this as unsafe. This was something i needed badly. How I get the file back and most importantly how do I get all the security off !!!!

    P.s - Firewall and all security settings are off yet it still happens !!!

    Any help much appreciated.

    Redownload the file and save it to where you want. Once the file has finished downloading, close msn messenger and go to wherever you saved the file and scan it with your antivirus programme. If it comes up as clean, open it from there.

    Regards Howard :)
