Windows 7: Cannot Save any Files

17 Nov 2009   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64bit
Cannot Save any Files

When saving a file from an application or program a window usually opens which allows you to browse a location as well as put in a name for the file and then save it.

For some reason my PC does not let me do this. The window opens and I can type in a name or choose a directory but when I click on save the PC the name of the file highlights and no save occurs. location of the save or file name does not make a difference. It just won't save.

Please assist.

Sorry for the trouble.

Yesterday i restarted a few times and the problem persisted. This morning i boot up and the issue is gone...???

Maybe my PC was just having a bad day.

Did however uninstall my Razer Applications for my keyboard and mouse yesterday before I went home, could that have affected it?
