I can not DIRECTLY open an Excel file sent as email attachment. The error
message is:

"Windows can not find 'C:\Documents and Settings\Sony vgn sz 2\Local
Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\J5x14UNN\ [Excel file
name].xls'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To
search for a file, click the start button, and then click search"

Please advise, thank you.

Do you have the same problem with other attachments like a word document?

Try opening the e-mail message. You are using a web e-mail tool so double
click on the e-mail message. then go to start button and right click and
select "EXPLORE". Use the Explore window to find the file you have posted
below. Post the results. You are probably missing one of the Folders in the
filename. I need to know which one is wrong so I can tell you what needs to
be fixed.

No, only problem with Excel file only.

Searched through Windows Explorer, folder "Content.IE5" is not exist in
Temporary Internet Files folder.

Sometimes one of these works when you're having trouble with double clicking on
the file in windows explorer:

Tools|Options|General|Ignore other applications (uncheck it)

--- or ---

Close Excel and
Windows Start Button|Run
excel /unregserver
then
Windows Start Button|Run
excel /regserver

The /unregserver & /regserver stuff resets some of the windows registry to
excel's factory defaults.
