Unable to open Offfice attachments in Windows Mail

Whenever I try to open a Word, Powerpoint of Excel attachment in Vista Mail I get an error message saying "The path or filename for C:\Windows\System32\[filename] is invalid. Please check the path and filename are correct"
If I save the attachment to the desktop and open it from there then it opens fine. PDF attachments also open fine.
Please HELP!!
