I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Before I could simply add an attachment. Now am getting a menu line of docs, photos. emote, etc
When I attach a file or photo it asks if I want it online? I say no
When received, the option is View Online, Download, Download as zip.
If you use View Online, the recipient must have Hotmail to view. OK that option not good
If you use Download, You must have MS Word 2010 ?
If you use Download as zip, recipient must have winzip or others.

Q: How can I get back to the one that worked.
An option is move away from Hotmail - becoming too intrusive and complicated for the 80 year old brain.
Thank guys.

A:Solved: New hotmail attachment options

inbox is not to bad.


They push the other software in ads that are added to the email but just stay away from it.
Site does have some cool things.

Like the way you can upload to the photo album, music or storage and then just add them to email. Just save things from email to album, music or storage or any folder you make.
Plus a lot more.
Plus you have more screen to see what your reading and writing so good if you have a harder time seeing because you not in some little box.

Plus if you need support they well reply to you. Getting a reply from any support now days is like a dream but they reply so that is good.

It keeps in the "Use Address Auto Complete" your last address or all the address you email to and you can not turn it off. You can keep from seeing it but not edit it out.

Took a day and a half to get a reply so not bad.

Hi Folks,

Just found this site and this is my first post.

Some months ago I had reason to change OS from Windows XP to Windows 7. I downloaded my "Pictures" onto a thumb drive along with some other items I wanted to save and reinstall after the OS change. I transferred the photos, from thumb drive to my hard drive with no problems. The photos when saved to the thumb drive did so in mass with no divisions and/or folders when they were transferred to my new operating system. So, I painstakingly transferred them to my desktop and then back into new folders in my photo library. So far no problems showed up only a sore butt from sitting for a few hours doing the task. After the download and transfers were complete I deleted the folder that had stored all the photos from the download, since it was considered unnecessary and keeping the duplicate photos took up additional hard drive space.

Fast forward to a few days ago when I tried to download a photo as an "attachment" to an e-mail. I went to the photo wanted, clicked on it, then right clicked on it to preview it and discovered the following message in a pop up window.

" The item (name of photo chosen) folders saved on thumb disk 033.jpg that this shortcut refers to has been changed or moved, so this shortcut will no longer work properly" Below this was two buttons named "Yes" or "No". I also noticed a small bronze padlock that showed up next to the folder the photo was selec... Read more

My operating system is Windows XP utilizing Internet Explorer and Outlook Express 6.

Upon opening the attachment on certain e-mails from people I know, the following window appears and I cannot open the attachment!

" This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create
an association in the folder option control panel"

I can find and open the control panel folder option, but have no idea how to proceed from there! Does one have to repeat this procedure (however you instruct me to proceed) with every e-mail that presents this problem?

Thanks as usual for your assistance.

Either my computer is acting irrationally or I've missed a setting somewhere. My 4-yr.-old HD died about 3 weeks ago. Replaced it, loaded in all drivers, brought XP back to SP3 level with all 114 security updates, and loaded back on all the programs I wanted, including MS Office 2000. Everything seems to be working perfectly.

But I'm having a problem with Word. I frequently want to attach a document directly to an e-mail message and have for 12 years used the icon I install on the Word toolbar for sending a Word doc as an attachment. Today I put that same icon back on the toolbar. . . but when I open any Word doc, the icon is dimmed/not usable. Why?

The e-mail client I'm using on this machine is still OE.

I use Hotmail.com for email.

When I type up an email to send and want to include a file from my computer, I click on 'Attach', then search my computer for my Documents folder. But it shows empty. I wait for 30 seconds or so for files to show, but they don't and I close the attachment attempt. I do this maybe 3 or 4 times, and after several minutes, all the files in my documents folder show up and I can pick out and include my attachment. This goes not only for my documents folder but any other folder on my computer that I'm trying to choose a file to attach.

Is it the indexing on my computer that goes to work and delays everything? This sometimes happens (rarely) even when I'm not sending email. I will open 'Computer', then C:, then 'Documents', and no files show immediately.

This problem started a few weeks ago and I haven't been able to rectify it.

We can print from any other format like Outlook and Word, but as soon as we try from Hotmail or G mail all we get is a blank page. The only entry on it is the page number at the top and the file name and date at the bottom.

I've re-formatted the printer. (Brother DCP-145C)
Gone thru numerous suggestions from people with similar problems to no avail.
When the issue first arose the page actually did print, albeit with what appeared to be a multitude of symbols and characters. As I said, now it's blank.

We use Internet Explorer as our main link. I have yahoo and my wife uses google as our browsers.

trying to see the contents of an html attachment in an email received at hotmail account...

This takes me to screen that says attachment name and that it as been virus scanned with no virus found. Click on "Download File" (only other option is to "cancel"?). This opens a new IE window with the MSN name and butterfly at the top that says "This new browser window has been opened to display the attachment sent with your message.....". But the attachment contents doesn't display!!!!!

Any ideas?


A:problems seeing html attachment (hotmail)

Is it possible that the attachment is a blank file, i.e. an html file with no coding?

One thing you could try to at least rule out a problem with the file is this:

1. Save the attachment to your HDD.

2. Open the file with Notepad.

3. Verify that there is html coding there.

4. Open IE or your browser of choice.

5. Click File>Open, and navigate to where your attachment resides on your PC.

6. Click Open. If the HTML is legitimate, i.e. there are no problems with the coding, then the file should display in your browser window.

Hope this helps.

When I try to download files that are attached to an email,  I get the message "A problem occurred while downloading your attachment. Please try again." I tried downloading files that I had no problems with in the past and I still get this same error message. I'm doing this through ATT.NET web site, yahoo mail. I tried other browsers, IE, FireFox, Chrome, Microsft Edge and I get the same error message from all of them. 

A:A problem occurred while downloading your attachment. Please try again.

That you are getting this in several browsers say that it is not a browser problem. This leaves the possibilities of either a setting in your email system which prohibits attachments, or a setting in your anti-virus doing the same, or a problem with AT&T as your ISP.
As a first step I would try going direct to the Yahoo web-site and trying your emails there - yahoo.com .  If that works I would have a word with your ISP who I presume is either AT&T or one of their subsidiaries.

Lots of people have problems with Yahoo and Hotmail accounts. The most common causes seem to be cookie rejection, incorrect firewall settings, and/or an overly aggressive and intrusive firewall like ZoneAlarm that does a lot of things without asking.

Are you able to access the email accounts from a computer at another location? (other house, library, etc.)

Did you recently change any settings in a program or install a new program or a new version of or update for one, especially some security program (firewall, antivirus, etc.)?

I have not been here in a while as I have been pretty much problem free..
Until yesterday..
When I went to sign in to my windows live account, It said something to the effect that my account was blocked because of reports of spam activities.
It advised me to change my password, which I did, set up mobile phone number verification, which I did (again ), and lastly, changed my secret question.

Then i was able to login and i looked in my hotmail to see if there was any suspicious activities left behind by a hacker.
There did not seem yo be any indication that things were disturbed.
As my hotmail has no contact list, there were only meassages from the hotmail team ect.
As I primarily use yahoo mail to get my messages, I use skydrive primarily to archive and share Big files that I cant send in email.
My problem is that my hotmail thinks it my yahoo mail, because when I signed up for skydrive/windows live, that is the email address I used to set up hotmail.

Is this right?
I sent a test e mail to my yahoo from hotmail to see what my actual hotmail asddress was..
It says it's yahoo mail, my yahoo mail. even in the headers it says it was sent from yahoo, my yahoo mial.

I have had this same email for around 10 years and even though it's a silly embarrassing name in terms of reliability it has been impeccable as far as I can recall.

All of a sudden tonight it decided to stop sending me emails which I knew I was to receive.

Replies from other forums as well as the sign up activation mail for this forum and another both were not received after waiting over 30 minutes with still nothing (and of course I checked the junk mail).

I tried to send an email to myself from my same hotmail and nothing.

I also tried sending several form other mails and still nothing.

After awhile I was getting one or two reply notifications from different forums come through but now I cannot trust it. I have no idea what is getting through and what isn't as when I got those replies I did another self email check and still nothing.

Any idea what is going on here?

I even checked another hotmail account to send something to that one and it worked fine so I am rather puzzled by this.

I will probs slowly migrate to another account as I have planned to do so for a long time and so this will probably be the motivating factor however I have many many internet accounts tied to that hotmail address so I may be getting important mails and losing them randomly and have no idea.
