When I recieve an attachment that is an htm, it will not alwasy open.  I have found that If I have internet explorer open and try to open an htm attachment, it will not open.  If I close internet explorer and then try to open the attachment, it opens fine.

I know this sounds strange and has me at a total loss.  Has anyone every seen this before??

    Have you had this problem since install on this machine or is it recent?  If it is fairly recent, I have seen malicious spyware effect Internet Explorer from working properly.  It is worth a check, only takes a couple minutes with this free utility.
