    Missing Email Attachment

    Hi, New to the Forum.

    I was hoping I can get some help with mu Windows Mail. I installed Internet Explorer 9 a few days ago and since then I do not have the attachment icon in my (paper clip) in my "From" / "Subject" banner. To access my attachment, I have to double click my message where a smaller window will open up and attachment can be opened from there.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you.

    I suppose I would think, update to Windows live?

    Thank you so much for the help. I followed the uninstall procedure for Internet Explorer 9 and to my surprise I lost all my Desktop settings and my Windows Mail set-up and much more.

    Fortunately I backup my computer and I was able to retrieve all that was lost.

    Best thing, I have my Windows Mail back to normal.

    Thank you again but Please be careful with the Uninstall. For now I would recommend staying away from IE 9.

    Happy that you got back to what you are comfortable with.
    Yes, IE9 seems to be having an affect on a few things, but I suppose that is to be expected until it has had time to bed in?
    Enjoy your computer & WM.
    Thank you.
