You didn't say which email program you are using. Windows Mail for example has a security setting option, selected by default, that stops you from opening attachments. You could look into your email program rather than your browser for this problem.

I have tried Aol, Yahoo, and Gmail none work using 32bit IE8 but using IE8 64 bit, Crome or Mozilla all works fine but that doesnt make it right it wasnt like this when i bought it so i would like to fix it.

You got me a bit confused, is your Win7 32bit or 64bit?
It could be a case of corrupted registry entries.

This or this or even this one might be of help.

Its Win7 64bit Home Premuim but it comes with 2 IE8 options IE864bit an IE8 in my start menu and as im sure you already know im not a computer programer. I do have Ccleaner, Glary Utilies and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware installed i also have reset my IE8 settings to there defaults and its also my default browser. IE8 64bit works everything fine but it wont play videos because most players or drivers wont work yet in a 64bit if what i have read is correct. In IE8 32 i can read mail in Yahoo and Gmail but cant open any links, in Aol i can't even open the mail to read it and the problem only seems to be in emails no other problems opening hyperlinks using 32bit anywhere else or havent notice yet

If you use the registry cleaning parts of Ccleaner and or Glary you may have deleted an important registry entry that makes the program work in 32 bit. You may want to do a system restore to before this mail problem started and see if that fixes it.
