Windows 7: "You cannot save to this location..."

"You cannot save to this location..."

Recently, Windows will not allow me to save files (from applications or from internet download) to the location of my choice. It insists that I save to the root of my fovorites folder.
I did have to do a re-install of windows a while back.. might that be the source of my problems (ie., old permissions - share settings? )
any assistance would be greatly appreciated...
