heya there, i'll try not to make this too lengthy, but as my title suggests, basically whenever i try to right click and save target on a click, the save screen appears, then vanishes straight away!! its very strange and i don't know whats going on or what is wrong, but whatever it is its affecting my IE, and i dnt want the same to happen to my firefox...so what kind of spyware/adware program or anything do i have to download, if one at all!! i'd really appreciate your help as soon as possible...i might take it in to pc world for a health check but if it can be resolved from home, then even better!! :huh: hope you can help me out!!

i have windows vista on a toshiba laptop if that helps at all! lol

Tazzy before you take it in to be looked at, Id suggest running a virus scan with whatever security youre running. If you arent running anything, Id suggest downloading a new security suite, preferably one thats recommended by Microsoft - http://www.microsoft.com/windows/antivirus...dows-vista.aspx.

See what that comes up with. If things come up clean, Id suggest maybe you uninstall and reinstall your Internet Explorer 8 and see if that changes things. Heres the link to the download: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-...er/default.aspx.

Try those (in order) and see if anything helps.
