How are you trying to open them? Are you using a email client for example Outlook or are you going to a website logging in then trying to see the attachments?

Down load chrome, and see if it works there. FYI system restores and IE issues will.not work 99% of the time as IE is part of explorer.exe. i am not a fan of system restores ever.

Not sure about this,,, stick the windows install disk in and see if you can do a "install" "repair" of IE from it
Or stay away from sites that can screw your computer up.

What type of file are you trying to open? and what application is it trying to use to open the file? that application might need to be re-installed.

If IE is crashing..try to reset it.
Tools>Internet Options>Advanced tab>Reset
Also, if you are using IE11..been having issues with it...try uninstalling it from Windows Updates...Try IE10

You trying to open the pdf file I sent to your gmail? do you have acrobat reader?

Given the diversity of the human species, there is no “normal” human genome sequence. We are all mutants.
