SharePoint WSS Attachment in Announcement Won't Open

We have SharePoint WSS 3.0, MS Office 2003 and Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional.

In SharePoint WSS 3.0 when some of my users double click on an attachment (.DOC, PDF) on an Announcement, the attachment opens so they can view it.

However, I have a handful of users who double click on an attachment (.DOC, PDF) on an Announcement, and Sharepoint just closes.  If they right click on the document, they can open it.

I can't determine why they can't just open the attachment by double clicking like the rest of us.

Thank you in advance for you help!

Sounds like an issue with the client machine, especially since you mention "some" users. Hard to troubleshoot client issues.
