hey there,

for some reason my PC wont open my hotmail attachements. (pdf's, windows media, autocad files, etc etc) It Will scan the attachement, it just wont open it. it just started happening, i havent made any recent changes to my computer.
However, if i save the file to my computer first and then go to the file and click it , it will open.

Things i've tried:
-system restore didnt work,
-reset my internet explorer didnt work
-I used my laptop (also using win 7 and explorer 9)and it DID open my hotmail attachments so its not a hotmail issue
-I used Firefox to access my hotmail on my PC and it DID work for opening my attachments as well

Any ideas why my PC is not opening my hotmail attachments when i use win explorer 9 and how i can fix this?? its extremely annoying!!!!!

Hi Cody123
do you have any antiviruse something like that appllication which prevent the attachment from download, in most case Mcafe antivirus makes this problem. and 2nd when it works on Firefox why you don't keep using it.

Yes i do use Norton, but its never gave me any problems in the past. i also turned it off and im still having the same issue. id prefer to use IE explorer because its "linked" to my windows live messenger. I have to check my email 100 times a day for work, and when i access my email through messenger i dont have to use a password to get into my email account, but when i have it set up with FireFox i do!!
i just dont like typing in my password so many times per day!

any other ideas?? i have also tried using a program called combofix. it didnt work either
