Why can't I save the HBEDV.key in Outlook Express?

Outlook Express has a security feature, which prevents saving executable file attachments. If this option is activated, you can not save HBEDV.key.

To deactivate this security option in Outlook Express, go to Tools -> Options and open the Security tab.

Deactivate the option "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus."

Afterwards, you should be able to save the file without difficulty.
