i can't open any "microsoft Word document" attatchments in hotmail. no matter who the sender is (even myself), no matter what the document is. when i click on "open attatchment", i get the same error stating that : "Internet Explorer was not able to open the internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or could not be found. Please try again later."
can someone help me out?

I've tried putting it to the lowest setting, but the attatchments still won't open. Normally, however, i keep the security setings on medium.

Try to download the document (just make ABSOLUTELY sure it is safe and from someone you know who is sending something you expect), and then open it with Word.

I tried, but i still get the same error. Its something in my internet options i think. something isn't letting me open word attatchments. I also can't open pdf files.
