Default Can't open .msg and .eml attachments in Outlook 2003

Have Vista Home Premium on new computer. Since transferring my Office 2003
SB Suite, I can not open attachments. This includes file types such as above
that are not on the list of forbidden file types. I can save them and turn
them into objects in word, but they are mostly a mess- hex code with some
english, no formatting. I've added the Level1 parameter to my registry with
these parameters as arguments. That hasn't helped.

I do not find a "don't open attachments" checkbox that I can uncheck in the
security tab of options.

Can anybody help?

How about right-clicking the file in Explorer, going to Properties and see
if the file has an Unblock button?

How did you go about the transfer of the .PST file? If you exported it on
the old machine and imported it on the new one, you've probably corrupted
your Outlook profile, a known issue with Outlook's .PST import/export
function. If this is what you did, create a new Outlook profile on the new
machine, make a COPY of your old .PST file (with Outlook closed) on the old
machine, place this copy on the new machine in a folder where it will NOT
OVERWRITE any existing .PST files, then re-connect Outlook to it using
'File|Open|Outlook Data File'.

I've found the solution to the problem:

With the help of Microsoft, a solution has been found to the problem of not
being able to open some or all file types attached to email messages in
Outlook 2003 on Vista: the Google Desktop is blocking the action. As a
work-around:

Go to add-ins: Tools.Options.Other.Advanced Options, Add-In Manager button
and, if the Google Desktop addin is checked, uncheck it.

This solved the problem of not being able to open and view attachments.
