Problem Solutions

Windows Live Mail keeps going offline First, EXIT Windows Live Mail.  It must not be running to fix this problem.  Open only one instance of Internet Explorer (closing others), and depending on the version, the "Work offline" choice is either in the "File" or "Tools" dropdown. Make sure that it is unchecked. Next, close IE and then start Windows Live Mail.
Windows Live Mail does not allow user to open attachment with already configured default program! On Start Menu, click on "Default Programs", insure first that the attachment filetype, e.g. DOC is associated with the right program, e.g. WINWORD.  (use Associate a file type or protocol with a program to do this)

Next, backup to top level and select "Set default programs", then choose Windows Live Mail and ensure all choices are checked off for Windows Live Mail, then ditto for Internet Explorer. 
After that, close the dialog and restart Windows Live Mail. 

Once confirmed that it is fixed. You may change the default web browser to whatever one you normally have.
Alternativelly, if the above solution fails, save the attachment into an appropriate folder, then using Windows Explorer, locate the file and open it.
