In the past, I’ve been able to download and save movie and game files, such as .wmv or .swf. I noticed the problem when I couldn’t view an email attachment. Figuring it was a corrupt file, I went to the URL and still couldn’t open it. Checked some other favorite sites of previous downloads, and no response from .swf files-unless I already have that file saved. New files are unresponsive, and I can’t right click to Save target as for other file types.
Win98SE latest service pack/patch/upgrade installed.
Windows media player says it’s fully up to date.
Downloaded and installed Shockwave player 10 from Macromedia.
NAV, NIS, NAS all current.
The only other item noteworthy is I have a game file downloaded which is under a 30 day evaluation. I might buy it, but not if it’s goofing up the otherwise happy box. Perhaps coincidence, but that’s one of the only things I can think of right around that time frame. A week or so previous I had done scandisk, defrag, spybot purge and virus scan.
