You mention a problem with old files. Is this files that are still
attachments in e-mail messages, or files that were previously saved to
a Windows folder?
If files that are still attachments, try saving them (File, Save
Attachments) and then try opening the saved attachments.
If the problem is still with saved attachments, then it's not likely an
issue with Windows Live Mail.
Do you have Norton Anti-virus installed? If so, there is a known
problem with its Office plug-in. Norton has an update for this.
