Windows 10: Help with email attachments arriving blank? Solved

    Help with email attachments arriving blank?


    Today in emails, when opening up links to documents, the document pages come up empty, without any words but with the lines, boxes and formatting and logo at top of page. What is being blocked here and what have I accidentally clicked on to disallow these to come through? Do I go into settings and look for something specific? I am in the dark here. Just happened today, fine yesterday. Windows 10, Gmail used. Help!

    Do a system restore. Pick 2 to 3 days ago as your restore point.
