I recently started studying at Geek U! Some of the pages I downloaded into a folder which I then could access via a link. The "editor" was Keynotes ... I suppose a bit like a "file a fax". Some pages for others sites did not save as I expected and I noticed that they got saved in temp pages folder. After using "CleanUp!" the links I made in various documents did not work.
I dont understand why if the pages are clearly visible in my "Web Pages" folder and they load when I use my IE6.0 why I can not create a link....
Forgive ... I assume that the pages are saved in two locations? Sorry a liitle confused here...
Can anyone help explain what I am doing wrong? Or is it simply that the web site viewed will only let me save pages in my temp folder?

Dear All
Having sat puzzled for a while :) ; I decided to switch off "SpyGuard" and try again. No problems this time. Hence can only assume IE6.0 options or "ban" prevented me from reading and loading html pages. I will continue to use SpyGuard but exit the program when required. I suspect SpyGuard / IE6.0 needs a tweak.
Would you agree that was probably the cause of my problem? Would like to know.

sounds reasonable to me. I'm running spyware guard, tea timer and winpatrol, and it is sometimes a pain to intall a new program. Got to shut it all down, then watch them complain about new programs being installed. :tazz: But its nice to know they work.

PS, when you ran cleanup, that emptied your temp folders breaking the links that you had made to files stored in your temp folder.

Welcome to geek U. Enjoy your training.

Best regards,

Hi thanks for your reply. SG just exit it when suspect causing a problem. Then kick up again afterwards. The links I create ... I download and save as HTML files / folders. So I can write my notes and pull up respective pages. That way you can keep numerous files in one web page folder relating to different topics. Just have to be carefull that you dont overwite stuff that you previously linked.
Hence I save the web site link ; saved the HTML copy and write my notes.
Still fairly safe that way.
