Unable to open mhtml files in IE7 on Windows Vista

I am running Windows Vista Home Premium with IE7. I have Digital issues of
Windows IT Pro Magazine which are actually saved as mhtml files which I can
open using IE6 and I am unable to open those files using IE7 on Windows
Vista. It just throws a error message as "Internet Explorer cannot display
the webpage" when I try to open any of the mhtml files.

I checked out my Default Programs in Control Panel and it says .mhtml files
are associated with Internet Explorer. Still I am unable to open the files.

I am able to open the same files on Windows XP with IE6.

Any solutions?

RE: Unable to open mhtml files in IE7 on Windows Vista

I wish that someone would respond to this issue. I am having the same
problem. Files that open without issue on IE7 in XP simply will not open in
IE7 on Vista. There is very little information about this issue out there
and absolutely no mention of this issue in the Microsoft Knowledge Base. I
hate to sound like a conspiracy theorist but it seems like Microsoft is
wanting to keep this issue quiet, especially knowing the security
vulnerability that was introduced in IE7 with mhtml files.

If this is a Vista-only issue you may have better luck posting in a Vista-specific
newsgroup. Cross-posting my reply to one for convenience.

What have you tried doing to diagnose or work around your symptom?
FWIW I don't have Vista but I would probably try running ProcMon
on both OS. Save both traces and compare them. Where do they differ?


Good luck
