Hi,

I have been having this problem for a while now (used to work) when on the internet, I can not download or save anything, because the usual method i use - RIGHT CLICK.....'SAVE TARGET AS' is not an available option.

UPON RIGHT CLICK The options I have are

OPEN
OPEN IN NEW WINDOW
SAVE TARGET AS
PRINT TARGET
CUT
COPY
COPY SHORTCUT
PASTE
ADD TO FAVOURITES
PROPERTIES


and save target as can't be selected.

(may just be changing a setting, but lets just say im not exactly a pro when it comes to computers) :tazz:

Any advice would be most appreciated :)

Thanks in advance
Lisa

Thanks for your reply

I am using AOL internet explorer 7 ,

When trying to download a file such as : music CDs/samples, also things like mobile ringtones, there is no SAVE TARGET AS option.
(When trying to save pictures it will only allow me to save in ART format, which then either saves pics which are blank / 'NO PREVIEW AVAILABLE' or they dissappear completely)

When download some thing like music or programs you should just be able to click the link. Press >This< and a download of HiJack This (the program that makes those logs in the malware forum) should start. Dose that work on your computer?

When I right click that there is the option of "save image as" if that works try and save it as a JPG

If none of that works, could you try installing and reinstalling AOL internet explorer 7.

Dose it work in Internet Explorer?

If none of this works I have got a few other things I can try.
