Anyway, back to the subject. Putting on the net admin hat for a second, is the email and link from someone that you know and would expect an attachment or URL link from? It could be something your system is legitimately protecting you from. If you're uncertain, it never hurts to write 'em back and ask "Hey, my email didn't like that last email you sent with the attachment, was that really you?"
Hackers are unfortunately now smart enough to utilize social engineering to make you think you're getting something from a friend and whammo! Your PC now has cooties.
Apologies if you knew all this already, but I thought it worth mentioning.
