    How the hell can i turn that thing off? i don't want windows to block an mp3
    file when somebody sends me one through msn. And deblocking don't help
    either, cuz help and support says that i should just look for the file on my
    computer and deblock it, but it ain't even on my computer. It didn't save the
    file. I can judge myself whether or not a file can be trusted, i don't need
    windows doing that for me and what bugs me the most is that i can't seem to
    find a way to turn it off.....somebody?

  2. Are you referring to Outlook Express? If so, have you asked in the OE
    newsgroup?
