can't open attachments with Internet Explorer

By pchlp ·
I have a new Compaq laptop with IE 6, no SP2 on it.
All of sudden, when I go to Hotmail or Yahoo and there is an attachment to open, it does not open. I have to open Word or Excel first and then if I double click the attacment, it will be displayed.
It used to open the program automatically but now it does not.
Any ideas.

Someone is looking out for you. You should NEVER open an attachment directly from your e-mail. Save it to C:\temp or desktop and scan for viruses 1st.
enough said, keep your points.

It's bad enough you go to Hotmail and Yahoo. Did you forget MSN.
Everyone with any Savy stays away from those sites for their own good.
