I think I have a similar problem to that desribed by Madcow1...
I am unable to open/download certain file types attached to incoming emails, e.g. .doc, .txt, .xls, .jpg. The File Download dialogue box shows the little sheet of paper flying across from Globe icon to folder icon, but the progress bar does not appear, and the other information areas in the dialogue box remain blank (i.e. Estimated time left, Download to, Transfer rate). The download does not progress and I can only select Cancel.
Other file types don't seem to be a problem, e.g. .pps, .wmv.
I'm using a new laptop, Acer Aspire 5542, bought in January, and it came with "Microsoft Office 60 Day Trial - online". Just before the trial period expired, I installed a permanent copy of Office 2007.
Is it possible that there is some conflict between the trial software and my installed version of Windows 2007?
Does anyone know if there are any settings that I ought to check?
