Can not open a .aspx file on two new 7 boxes x64

We have a dept that looks at .aspx files they download from a vendor. I replaced one of the users PC's with a 7 x64 box and now she cant open up the aspx files. It didnt recognize what program it should open it with so I manually assigned it to iexplorer.exe but when I attempt to open the file it opens up the file in the IE download manager and asks if I want to open or download it (its saved on local desktop) when I try to open it from there it just opens another instance of the file in the download manager. Any ideas?

How they are accessing aspx file from other machines. using http://localhost/abc.aspx or jut double clicking on file?
Once again IE can not execute ASPX file. Can you be more specific ? what exactly they need to do open aspx file and examine code or see the end result of aspx file?

"Right click .aspx file, left click Properties, then under the General heading change the file name from xxx.asp x to something else, like bill.PDF. Save then open file."  
You will need Acrobat, Acrobat Reader, or something like Foxit to open the resulting .pdf file.

.aspx files are active server pages file and IE can not interpret that , associate it with word pad or notepad like utility an users will be able to view the file.

achaldave.. thats not entirely true they have opened up the aspx files with IE for a long time. I can take the same file and open it up on a PC using IE then attempt to open it from the PC in question and nothing opens it. I have associated it with Notepad and Wordpad and it opens unreadable.

Just opening the .aspx file will result in code.  The .aspx file has to be converted into a file which can be read, such as .pdf.
