My Windows XP desktop has Internet explorer 7. Frequently (but not always) when I try to open an attachment in an e-mail (hotmail, aol, etc.), the attachment does not open, the session of Internet explorer freezes and I have to end the program using task master (ctrl-alt-del). I have a laptop with IE6 that does not have this problem. Is IE7 the problem? Short of uninstalling it and installing IE6, is there an easier fix? Many thanks for taking the time. r/James

Features available through Yahoo! Mail include unlimited storage, the ability to view photos and videos from your inbox and the ability to send 50 files or 100MB worth of attachments in a single email.
You can also access Yahoo!'s instant messaging software from your inbox and check email on your mobile phone and other Internet-enabled devices.
Before signing up for Yahoo! mail, check its compatibility with your version of Internet Explorer.Standard Yahoo! Mail
Yahoo! Mail's standard interface works with Internet Explorer 7 and higher.
However, Internet Explorer 7 users may be unable to use the reply bar, slideshows or Yahoo! Messenger from their inbox.
To access these features, use at least Internet Explorer 9. All Internet Explorer users must have Windows 7, XP or Vista to use the standard form of Yahoo! mail. Mac operating systems using Internet Explorer are not supported by the current version of Yahoo! Mail. Older Option
Users who want to use Yahoo! Mail Classic will find it compatible with Internet Explorer 6, as well as newer versions of the browser.
Yahoo! announced to customers in July 2011 that it would soon stop supporting Internet Explorer 6. Yahoo! Mail Classic works with Windows 2000, XP and Vista, as well as Windows 7.
Yahoo! Mail Classic lacks many of the upgrades found in the current version of the email program.
While Yahoo! Mail supports older versions of Internet Explorer, the company recommends that users upgrade to the most current version.
Yahoo! says using the newest browser software provides more speed and added protection against viruses and software. Enabling ActiveX
If you plan to use the current version of Yahoo! Mail on a Windows machine, you'll want to enable your computer's ActiveX controls so you can access all the features of the email program.
To do this, go to the "Tools" menu or the gear symbol in Internet Explorer, then select "Internet Options" and "Security."
Click on "Internet," then "Custom Level."
Scroll down to "Run ActiveX Controls and Plugins" and "Script ActiveX Controls Marked Safe for Scripting." Enable each of these options and save your settings.
FIRST TRY RESTORING DEFAULT SETTINGS IN THE BROWSER.
1: Open up the internet window, by clicking on the "blue e" on your desktop, or by going to the Start Menu, All programs, internet Explorer
jQuery('#jsArticleStep3 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a02/03/or/restore-internet-explorer-default-settings-1.3-800X800.jpg');
From the Start Menu
If the "blue E" is not in fact on your desktop then refer to the picture in this step.
jQuery('#jsArticleStep4 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a02/03/or/restore-internet-explorer-default-settings-1.4-800X800.jpg');
2: Once the internet is open, you will then want to go to the "Tools" Menu, in the internet window. If you are using internet explorer 7 the tools menu is on what is called the Menu bar, and this menu bar generally is in the upper left hand corner.
Picture is attached.

If you are sure that the Email attachment is from a reliable source and then content is potentially safe you can try to download the images to your computer and save it in a folder.
After you have saved the pictures, open the folder containing those picture files and try to open it with Internet explorer.
If it is not ready to open with Internet explorer then you should not try to open it with any other program. There are chances that either the file is corrupted or it contains a Virus or other harmful stuffs.
If you are experiencing issues with InternetExplorer 7 at a site, you can open a window that reports its' identity as InternetExplorer 6:
1. Download the Microsoft User Agent String Utility (uasutility-v2-x86.msi) file. <http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=70356> 2. Double-click the uasutility-v2-x86.msi file to install it.
When you encounter issues with InternetExplorer 7 at a Web site, open the User Agent String Utility by clicking on the shortcut on the desktop or in the start menu. You can use the browser window that this tool opens without affecting other browser windows.
When you run the User Agent String Utility, you are presented with the dialog found in the screenshot attached to this SOX article. Open the SOX in Clarify to view the attachment.
