I have Windows XP sp3, suddenly I can not open any Hotmail attachment, I always get the following:

"Windows cannot find*****make sure you typed the name correctly and then try again"

What should I do to correct the problem?.

Thank you

Can you download an attachment, as opposed to opening it ?   I know, if you use IE, you have the choices Open / Download / Cancel while Firefox only gives the choices Download / Cancel
