Default Windows 2000 - Outlook express attachments are being disabled automatically

I'm not sure if it's outlook express or AVG antivirus that is disabling the attachments, or something else. I tried disabling the e-mail filter in AVG but it didn't help. What would cause the attachments in outlook express to be automatically disabled when a new e-mail comes in? Thanks.

To disable this feature, open OE 6.0 and go to Tools / Options / Security. Uncheck the box that says "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus."
