    Perhaps you do not have PowerPoint.

    I had the same problem and noticed the attachments I couldn't open were marked "pps"

    A friend installed PowerPoint in my computer and now I can open all attachments.

    They may be too large or yahoo may have detected a virus linked to the attachment. Possibly consider the source of the attachment to be the problem.

    I am assuming that you are using outlook express. In outlook express go to Tools > Options > Security and unchek the button : "Do not allow attachment to be saved ....."

    This will solve your prob.
