    Hi,
    Zip and Rar files attached to my Google and yahoo mails would not open up on my Acer a500 tablet. They are shown with an 'info' saying that this type of file may contain potential malware threat. Therefore my tab doesn't show any option to view or save.
    But they are simple excel or document files only and open up happily on my laptop.
    I solicit advice to tackle this problem.
    Sent from my A500 using Android Tablet Forum
