Windows 7: Can't "Save as" in 32bit applications on Windows 7 Pro 64bit.

Re-image from porty hard disk seems to have worked and after several reboots this morning the system retained the ability to "save as" in various applications without any problems.
From checking the dates it looks like the image was taken mid way between installing my new GFX card and installing SP1, so I think I'm probably safe to assume the SP1 install might have been responsible for borking those two DLL files, as theres nothing else I can recall having updated or installed during that period.

Next trick now will be a case of very carefully applying any updates/etc again in safe mode this time, and waiting to see which of them, if any, breaks the system again...

Backup the working dlls, you can do a quick copy paste if they misbehave again. Though some other dlls may decide to act up next time....

good plan

Plan of attack will probably be to run Chkdisk and SFC again a few times now, just to make sure theres no issues lurking in the background that havent manifested themselves yet on the rolled back system.

Once thats done and Im satisfied the system is clean I'll replicate the system partition to a seperate disk just to keep a physical copy on hand.

Then itll be the joy of trying to retrace my steps over the past few weeks to make sure theres nothing I've run, looked at or hovered my mouse over that may have updated itself or my system, or that could otherwise have affected those DLL's and making a painful number of backups between each change till everythings up to date and ideally, not broken any more lol.


Golden - sorry missed your post before. Not sure if that issue would be related to the problems I was experiencing sorry..
Basically the issue I had was that if I tried to download/save an item in IE or Firefox by right clicking and selecting "Save target as..." or trying to save any file in any 32bit app with the "Save as" option where most users would see the screen display something like the image below:



My system would instead start to load the file explorer window but freeze as it was loading, leaving me with something that looked more like:



And would require me to end the process via task manager to clear the program. Id also get the same error when attempting to open files through applications too, although I could open files through windows explorer and could quick save files with ctrl+s or just hitting the relevant save button and allowing the app to use a generic name and save location without any problems at all.

Hi,

No problem - I misread your post : I thought you were having MSOffice save issues
