    I received an e-mail with attached Word file, and cannot open attachment.
    After a successful virus scan, I am asked to choose whether to open or save
    the file. Regardless of what I choose, the next window ("File Download") has
    only field names (such as "Estimated time left" and "Download to"), and
    remains unchanged for a very long time until cancelled. In the past I had
    the same problem with attached Excel file, but was able to solve it by
    deleting temporary internet filed, cookies and history. Now even this does
    not help. I tried to turn off the popup blocker - still nothing. Important:
    I never had this problem on my other PC. So, how do I open attached MS
    Office files???
