Okay. I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 that has had the same Windows Vista Home Basic that it came factory-installed with since roughly September of 2008. However, I recently had to do a clean install of Vista because of some problems concerning random BSOD's and other maladies.
The reinstall has worked fine so far. No BSOD's since the reinstall, Safe Mode is working okay, and the system is generally functioning okay. However there is one problem that is threatening to impede functionality.
Programs like iTunes and Firefox installed okay, and in general work fine, except for one problem; when I go to Open or Save As, nothing happens. The programs don't crash and I haven't seen any error messages, but the windows where I can browse folders and find files to open, locations to save never appears. What can I do to fix this, if anything?
