Can't Open .docx attachment from Outlook 2010

I have ONE user that can't open word/excel/ 2010 attachments from Outlook 2010.

I have removed and reinstalled Office 2010 and have run the 2003 Outlook fixit tool and the 2010 fixit tool.

Another possibility: Does this occur when a different user profile is logged in?
If it doesn't, you may want to create a new profile for the user that cannot open the attachments.
See if Enable Protected View for Outlook attachments is checked and uncheck it if so.
