    Try This:
    In Internet Explorer: Go to Tools> Options > Programs > Click the "Reset Web Settings" button.
    A second window will contain a box "Also reset my home page". If you do not want to change your Home page, be sure this is unchecked.

    Another cause of similar problems can be overloaded Temporary Internet files. I consider it a bug in IE, but M$ does not always have good warnings. When the Temporary files get too full, there is no warning, and some things just stop working right. One symptom is the inability to download images in any format except Bitmap, and it can mess up email, too. Try emptying the temp files (Tools>Internet Options - General tab, click the Delete buttons for Cookies and Files) and clear offline content also. See if that clears up the problem.

    Assuming you are using Outlook express as you email program. It may be the security settings. You can shutb off the security setting BUT!!!! make sure you are running up to date virus protection!!!!!
    Open Outlook, select tools at the top then options, Click on the "Security" tab. You will see a checkbox beside text that reads, "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus. Uncheck that box and then click "Apply", then "OK" to deactivate this feature.
    IF THIS IS NOT THE PROBLEM, reverse the procedure.

    Good Luck
