 Removing Outlook 2002 (XP) attachment security

 Outlook 2002 disallows access to certain attachments

 There are 2 levels of attachments, by default:

 Level 1 contains:
 ade;adp;asx;bas;bat;chm;cmd;com;cpl;crt;exe;hlp;hta;inf;ins;isp;js;jse;lnk;mda;mdb;mde;mdz;msc;
 msi;msp;mst;pcd;pif;prf;reg;scf;scr;sct;shb;shs;url;vb;vbe;vbs;wsc;wsf;wsh

 Level 2 contains:
 none

 Actions:
 Level 1 - Attachments are blocked from user access.
 Level 2 - Attachments can be saved but not viewed.

 Workround:

 The following key moves attachments from level 1 to level 2 so that users can save the
 attachment.

 HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Outlook\Security
 Key: Level1Remove
 Reg_SZ:ade;adp;asx;bas;bat;chm;cmd;com;cpl;crt;exe;hlp;hta;inf;ins;isp;js;jse;lnk;mda;mdb;
 mde;mdz;msc;msi;msp;mst;pcd;pif;prf;reg;scf;scr;sct;shb;shs;url;vb;vbe;vbs;wsc;wsf;wsh

 If this doesn't work check and remove the following registry keys:

 HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SW\Policies\Microsoft\Security\
 Key: CheckAdminSettings
 HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Outlook
 Key: DisallowAttachmentCustomization
