uploading photos to web with Windows 7

I have a toshiba satellite laptop running windows 7 after enjoying XP for several years...
My problem centers around photos.
I cannot right click on a photo(on the web or in an email) and find 'save as' and send it to my picture folder
I also cannot upload pictures to the web... id pictures on web pages, and facebook. all three browsersxx (IE, Firefox, Chrome) stop, and reload the page when I attempt to do this activity ---- click on 'upload'.....I never see a browse window. I also cannot add images to email. when clicking on attach the window closes and reloads.
Anyone out there have any help for me?

Hi LPaulson, welcome to 7F! :)

Some of your problem sounds like you may have a bad context menu handler, I was going to ask you if you could post a snip of your context menu, but you don't see the browse window you would need to post one.
  • Can you see "Save As", but it is "grayed out"?

Have you tried to see if this happens while in Safe Mode with Networking? Look under Here's How - Step #3 and 4 to get there.
I mention this mode because from your description it sounds like this problem occurs while online. I wouldn't think you would run into these problems while offline have you?

If the context menu works okay while in safe mode and you're online, I would suspect a newly added program that may have added menu items that are conflicting with other handlers on the menu.
  • Have you recently installed any image editors that may have added menu shortcuts to the menu?
  • This could also be a problem with add-ons or extensions to your browsers. Do you run a lot of them?
  • There is also the possibility that some of the pictures you are trying to save while online have a security code that won't allow the saving of pictures.

Some background on Context Handlers:
Right-click is slow or weird behavior caused by context menu handlers

Not sure which version your using ?
Also see what this does,
Use No Add-ons mode/ Click the Start button and type in the search box,
Internet explorer

Click on the suggestion (No Add-ons) or itís located at,
Start/ All programs/ Accessories folder/ System tools folder/ No add-ons.
If using ie10 the first link will apply to ie9 as well,
If using ie10 or 11 see if activating Enhanced protection mode works,
