Problem with receiving MP3-files from other users

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.messenger (More info?)

Hello!

Now I have got a problem that seems to be easy to solve ,but the
result was not as it schould be.

I want to receive some MP3-files from my friends, but when they start
to send, My Messenger (Windows XP servicepack 2, Windows Messenger)
tells me that there was a security risk and the operation was
cancelled. There were no problems in sending to the same friends.

I found out in the Microsoft help system, that one checkmark was wrong
in the folder settings, in the file types list. But the unchecking of
the "confirm opening after download", or what that is in English, did
not change the situation.

Where can I now try to find out the solution?

    Greetings,

    This is a new "security" feature. Assuming you're using Windows XP SP2, you can disable this
    by downloading and running the following .reg file:
    http://messenger.jonathankay.com/downloads/extfix.reg
    You'll need to restart Messenger to see the change.

    OK, I found the .reg-file ,but I don't know where to putit or what to
    do with it? I have now only saved it to my hard disk to a download
    directory for temporary files where it is waiting for the next action.
