Hotmail will not open attachments...... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Out of nowhere, my hotmail account will no longer open attachments.  No matter what kind of document it is (MSWord, Excel, PDF), I get this pop up window (vs. the normal gold bar along the bottom of the screen giving me options to Open, Save, Save As, etc.) and clicking on ANY of the options in that pop up window DOES NOTHING, so I can now no longer open attachments in Hotmail (!)  Doesn't ANYBODY out there know how to fix this??????

    After upgrading to IE 11 and Windows 8.1, any emails I receive with attachments now show the error:Image
