I have a problem with saving files from my browser on Windows 7 (64). This affects any browser i try, including IE 8 (32), Google Chrome and Firefox.

When saving a file, the 'Save as...' dialogue box comes up and a few seconds after this the browser freezes, usually accompanied by an error (Internet Explorer has stopped working and needs to close - similar thing for Firefox and Chrome).

Oddly this doens't seem to effect IE8 64-bit - this browser works ok.

I've googled this but can't seem to find anything specific - it all seems to point towards browser plugins etc, which in my case doesn't sound logical, as it's affecting any broswer i try reglardless of plugins.

Can anyone help with this as it's becomeing increasingly frustrating!
