Windows 7: scrambled email attachments

10 Mar 2010   #1

windows7 starter
scrambled email attachments

When i open email attachments from different senders from my hotmail account they open up scrambled, for example'

ѐ  ' 
theme/theme/_rels/themeManager.xml.relsPK   ]  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<a:clrMap xmlns:a="" bg1="lt1" tx1="dk1" bg2="lt2" tx2="dk2" accent1="accent1" accent2="accent2" accent3="accent3" accent4="accent4" accent5="accent5" accent6="accent6" hlink="hlink" folHlink="folHlink"/>     "    D E F ] ^   i k f g 6 7 4 5 W X i j k { |             0 0 0 0 0  0

I have checked for viruses and there arnt any. When i log onto another computer with the same software but using windows xp they open fine. Therefore i cant see how it can be anythin to do with the email or my software. I am attemting to open them in word pad and microsoft word and the documents are scrambled in both.

Any suggestions is this a problem with windows 7 starter? i googled the problem and similar problems seemed to happen with windows vista at some stage.

Any suggesstions
