    Wasn't sure which forum to put this in.

    I can't ever seem to open attachments. Not photo attachments, but document type attachments.
    Like when someone posts a flyer, or a letter to a customer, etc.
    When I click on it, I get a box that gives me a choice of "open" or "save". I click on open. In the past that used to work for me, But now it just comes up as a bunch of random text.

    Any ideas?

    Couple of things come to mind...

    Have you tried to specify which program to open it in? In other words, open .doc in Word and .xls in Excel?

    Have you tried the "save" option and had that work?

    Is your antivirus interferring?

    I'm no computer geek, but just some thoughts to check on....

    I'm sorta thinking it may be something along those lines too. Any idea what it SHOULD be opened in?

    If you have a firewall, turn it off and try again. Smetimes my firewall prevents pictures from loading on webpages. No, not THOSE webpages!
