    Dear Specialists,

    Strange behavior observed on one of the user's machine running WIndows-7.
    Excel attachment with ".xls" extension in the Windows live mail, when clicked to open, the excel file does not open & user is prompted to save the file as ".xlsm" extension. User do not have MS Office 2007 installed.

    Is it due to virus or some other design?

    Seek help to resolve this issue.

    That extension is an Excel created/supported file...Excel (installed on
    the same machine) rather than the stand-alone free Excel viewer is a
    requirement to open the file.
