    I am unable to open any pictures, videos, even a Jacquielawson
    > animated card in yahoo mail The problem exists from any mail I get from anyone
    There is no error message, the attachment is simply unresponsive even
    though the cursor turns from normal to a "hand" indicating a URL that
    can be opened but does not.
    This issue occurs on all mail in the yahoo mail box,


    . I am using win7 on a HP laptop with the following
    Components.


    Operating System: win 7 UPGRADE
    >
    > Type of Browser: IE 8
    >
    AVG Internet Security 2011


    AMD ATHLON CHIP DUAL CORE 2.10 GIGAHERTZ

    3 GIGS OF MEMORY

    NVIDIA GFORCE 8200M G DISPLAY

    STANDARD WINDOWS FIREWALL

    The following actions were taken in regard to this problem and the
    problem still persistes.


    Disabled the anti-virus software temporarily.

    Used IE 8 without add-ons

    cleaned the cookies and cache

    updated flash player

    switched back to classic yahoo mail

    Switchted to Chrome browser and the problem ends. I can open all
    attachments and videos etc using Chrome, but the problem with IE8 still
    remains

    Tested from another computer and there is no problem.

    If testing from another location means using my neighbors computer, then
    that is what I did and there is no problem.


    After reading the above it will be clear to all that I solved the problem by using Chrome, but I am stubborn and want to solve the IE8 problem which Microsoft tells me they wont help me with unless I agree to pay for the help . I am sure there are some smart readers out there who have seen this problem and have come up with a solution. I certainly appreciate any help given. Patrick Quinn
