Angry Opening an attachment

i want to open this attachment that one of my friends sent me but outlook express won't let me open it. Is there any way that i could open it? It is a zip file if that helps any. Yes i know what the attachment is and have been expecting it.

right...make sure your settings in outlook allow you to accept Attachments and check that option in your antivirus too

To make Outlook Express allow access to attachments, Go to Tools > Options > Security Tab, and uncheck the box that says "Remove Access to Unsafe Attachments"

Hit ok and then restart Outlook. All set.
