I am a new user of Win7 on a recently purchased laptop (previously happily using XP) I now find that Microsoft intervenes whenever I try to open any pps files and decides to save these away from the email in the documents library. It apparently has decided that these attachments might not be safe but these same attachments were no problem with XP. I can appreciate that attachments can be a source of virus attacks but I have always had full internet security installed. My problem now is how to attach these isolated pps to an email. Can anyone help explain what is happening here and how I can overcome it please?

Many thanks

You can never be too cautious.
Even, if you have your security program active, EVERY attachment should be saved and scanned with your AV program BEFORE doing anything else, like opening it.
