Not able to open email attachments in Vista - HELP!

By theclaritygroup ·
I hope someone will repsond quickly! I have vista and internet explorer 7. When I try to open and save a word document which I sent to myself as an attachment in my Yahoo mail account, I receive a message stating IE has blocked the attachment, please click here too download it. I click, it flashes the usual open save message box on the screen, which disappears the moment I click either selection. I have done the following: turned off Windows Defender, Turned off my virus software, I have tried every IE Security setting imaginable. Any ideas on what I have missed?

Have you tried checking to see WHERE it has already put the file?

Of course the message box on the screen disappears the moment you click on it. If you answered open, the message box goes away and the file is blocked so it will not open. If you answered SAVE to the question, it has already downloaded the file to your computer and stored it in your default download location. Have you checked to see where it put it? Have you searched for it?
