having trouble downloading attachments from yahoo mail and hotmail

everytime i click on an attachment to download it gives me the same error: "IE was not able to open this internet site. the requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. please try again later."

ive tried many times - different attachments in different emails on different days. both yahoo and hotmail.

however, i did try to download from my email on a DIFFERENT computer and it worked. so it might be a problem with my computer. any ideas what it is and how i can fix this? thanks.

A couple of options:
Try this setting first:
in IE, tools, internet options, security tab, custom level, scroll down to "downloads" and make sure "file downloads" is enabled.

If enabled go here:

To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Internet Explorer 6. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
