When I save a file I have changed, using "Save As", I get no warning if the original would be overwritten. This does not happen in every program, but it started in Paintshop Pro 7 and in PSP 9, I checked a few other programs, and it happens also in MS Word 2000. Excel and Publisher seem ok; I haven't checked every program on my computer. The dialogue worked as it should yesterday; all I have done today is copy .jpg files from two microdrives from my camera. I have edited them in PSP, but not in Word. If anyone can help or suggest where I could look, I would be grateful. Thank you.

If you use save as it saves a separate file, leaving the original as it is.

assuming you use a different file name, you should get a warning if you try to save a file with the same name

Thanks for a quick answer, Keith, but that isn't what PSP used to do. If I edit a picture, then slect "Save As" and choose the same file name, it should ask me whether I want to overwrite the existing file. Least, that's what it's always done up to now. Same thing with Word. It's just stopped doing it.

If it was just one of them you could run detect and repair in office a long shot is to check the system files, insert XP CD then cancel when loaded, click start then run then type sfc /scannow then press enter and it will replace missing or corrupt ones.

Have a go with Panda active scan
