Unable to see pictures, open attachments in IE8 on WinXP
I recently installed IE 8 in the Windows XP oerating environment. Now in my
Hotmail account, pictures will not display nor can they be opened by clicking
on the attachment name. In fact no attachments will open and dispplay.

When I clicked on the attachment name when using IE 7 a message pane would
appear and ask if I wished to either open the attachment or save it to file.
Now this pane does not display at all.

Any suggestions?

Please state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; Vista x64 SP2) when
posting to this newsgroup.

HOW TO Optimize IE for Windows Live Hotmail (27 May 2008)
[NB: There are separate sections for IE6 and IE7 (still incorrectly titled
"Windows Explorer 7"); the IE7 section applies to IE8]
http://emailsupport.spaces.live.com/...708!6203.entry

1. Does the behavior persist if you start IE in No Add-ons mode? To start
IE in No Add-ons mode:

=> Right-click on the blue IE desktop icon and select Start without
Add-ons; or

=> Start | (All) Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Internet
Explorer (No add-ons).

Troubleshooting and Internet Explorer’s (No Add-ons) Mode:

2. Does the behavior persist if you Reset IE Advanced settings (RIES)?
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923737 <= Read before using!

3. What anti-virus application or security suite is installed, is your
subscription current, and is it supported in IE8? What anti-spyware
applications (other than Defender)? What third-party firewall (if any)?
Were any of these applications running in the background when you installed
IE8?

4. Has a(nother) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on this
machine (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
it)?

5. Just asking for now!! Do NOT use such a Restore Point yet!! => Do you
have an available Restore Point which predates the install of IE8?
