I posted last week but didn't get answer. Maybe someone can help.

Whenever I am reading email and try to open a picture attachment I cannot open it directly and get error message "Invalid Menu Handle." It will let me save it to my pictures file but I cannot open it directly. I used to be able to do this, but suddenly am not able to. Also I am able to open directly a video, just not a picture.

I am using Windows XP, Yahoo to read mail and Internet Explorer version 6.0.

So this is what happens. When I double click on picture it gives me a virus scan screen with the info below and I press the download button.

File name: DS24.jpg
File size: 54kb
File type: image/jpeg
Scan result: No virus threat detected.

Then it gives me this screen:

File Download Security Warning

Name: DS24.jpg
Type: Unkown file type.
From: us.f334.mail.yahoo.com
Do you want to open or save this file? (To which I chose open)

Then I get the message:

c:\documents and settings\Sheila Turner\local settings\temporary internet files\content IE5\Y3WRUDCR\DS24[4].jpg

Invalid Menu Handle

Thanks for any help!!!

Sheila - I have two suggestions (guesses):

1. Run Windows Update.

2. Repair Internet Explorer:
There is a tutorial to fix IE here - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/How...ress-tut71.html
