    When scanning and downloading a file that I receive by email I’m giving the option of;

    “Would you like to open the file or save it to your computer”.

    If I select to open the file the system downloads the file and launches the program to see the file (Adobe, Word, etc.) Then after the program opens I get the message:

    “There was an error opening this document. This file can not be found”

    I use to be able to open files that I downloaded from my email without saving to my computer. I have not knowingly changed anything in my system that would make it not work.
    Could I have accidentally erased the temporary file location where the new file is stored? If so where would that be and how would I fix it?

    I’m currently run XP Home Edition and my browser is Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0.
