Windows 7: Cannot attach multiple images/files to email

Cannot attach multiple images/files to email

All of a sudden this evening I can no longer attach multiple images/files to an email. Neither does the "Control-A" or click on a file hold "shift" and click on another file work.

Also when I attach a single file instead of giving me the progression bar it almost instantly indicated the file is attached.

Of course this is irritating as multiple time a day I will send emails with images attached and I have to have this feature working.

Try putting them into one file and zip it.

No, that wouldn't work (already tried it) because when I opened a folder of images I was unable to "CTRL - A" of click on a file hold and click on another to cover all files in between.

I believe I found the culprit and it appears to have been a disabled flash something or other. Anyway it is now working.

I appreciate your interest and suggestion>
