Boot to Safe Mode with Networking and try it, see if it still happens. If not then something is starting at boot time that is causing the problem.

Where do you download to?

My download path is....

C:\Documents and Settings\JACK\My Documents\Downloads

Can you open a Command prompt, change to the C:\Documents and Settings\JACK\My Documents\Downloads directory then do a: attrib *.*

See what attributes show that way. Post results if you can.

Sorry, I should have been more explicit.

Open a command prompt.
Type: cd "C:\Documents and Settings\JACK\My Documents\Downloads" and press Enter. (Must enclose in double quotes)
Type attrib *.* and press Enter.

I dont know if this is related....if i D/L an image, in the properties under the read only chk box there is a message about image coming from another Pc and it might blocked..........i dont know if this is a security update but ive never noticed it until i started having the "read only" problem.

Thx Jack

Okay, I see the read only attribute on this one:

A R C:\Documents and Settings\JACK\My Documents\Downloads\Drake - Started From the Bottom .mp3.mp3

Let's see what is running on your computer:

Download and install CCleaner from the following link: CCleaner - Standard

During installation, uncheck the option to install the Yahoo toolbar.

Start CCleaner. Click on Tools (ICON) and Select the following BUTTONS to create two (2) text files:
  • Uninstall > Save to text file (install) – bottom right corner of app window
  • Startup > Save to text file (startup)
Locate and open each saved file in the ‘Documents’ FOLDER:
  • Copy and paste the contents of each file into your next post (2 files).
