mwv and mpeg files

Is there a free download to view these files. I used the nero trial version but it ran out. A lot of emails seem to be coming in this format but i can't open the attachments. What up with this anyway. Not to computer literate, sorry sao any help would be appreciated.
Bill Thanks

your windows should be able to handle mpeg, and quicktime for the other. But, if you dont know the sender of these emails, i wouldnt open the attachment. odds are it's a virus, and maybe your mail company has filtered it out anyway.

mwv files are Movieworks files. I would be surprised if Real Player and/or Windows Media Viewer cannot play them. However, there is also a player available at the following download:

Both Real Player and Windows Media Viewer can handle mpeg files (all types) with no problems.

Do heed tae's advice. Unless you requested the email from someone and know what it is, or downloaded the file yourself from a reputable web site, do not attempt to open it.
