What operating system, and what version of IE are you using. Can you save the attachments to your desktop, then open them with the correct program, eg word for .docs etc.

Do you mean ALL attachments? I have known systems to be configured in such a way that they force you to save rather than open directly - quite a good policy to protect against virus.
Have you tried saving them then opening them from explorer? As for pictures, if you can't open them by double-clicking, you should be able to insert them as graphics into word (not clever, but works if you are in a hurry).
You could try installing a simple graphics viewing program (I use ACDSee, excellent for browsing digital photos).
Anyway, as KO suggests, more information would help.
