Files Not Opening

Hello. I'm not really sure if this is where I should post this topic, but it's my best guess.
I am using Firefox and Yahoo! Mail.
I just noticed this morning that my files received from emails are not opening. Usually if I click on the file attachment name on the header of my email it automatically opens, but now I am getting a message asking me where I want to open it. That's unusual in and of itself, because it usually just automatically opens, but also, when I click browse to find what I want to use to open it, the right ones not even there.

Example: A power point came and I clicked on it in my email and it showed me the box with the options of what I want to open it with, but PowerPointViewer wasn't an option, so I doubleclicked browse and still it wasn't in my Program Files folder. So I downloaded it again. I saw it in my All Programs list on the start menu, but not in the Program Files folder. I'm confused. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!!!!
