At first this issue started while using IE9 and trying to attach a file to upload to a website (ongoing for about 3 months.) But today it has gotten worse. Whenever I select my desktop for saving or opening files from within a program, it freezes up, screen goes white and the program "stops responding." Even my Chrome won't let me target a location to download files. Other programs to fail today were Excel, Word, MySQL Workbench, Adobe Reader, IE9 (still,) Opera, FF, Outlook, gosh...any program I have tried to save, open or attach.

I downloaded and installed the Netframework 4.0 update from M$ this morning, and am now unable to navigate files from my computer, using any program.

Has anyone else had issues since updating Netframework 4.0?

I use Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. Let me know if more info is needed.

The last .NET update I see for myself is KB2600217. It's optional and meant to resolves issues. If that is the one you're talking about, I suggest uninstalling it to rule it out.

  • To Uninstall:
  • Click the start orb and type updates. In the search results, double-click on View installed updates.
  • Use the "Installed On" column to locate the update that was installed today. Double-click it to begin removal.
  • After removal, test the computer for proper operation.

If it looks like I know what I'm doing, there's a pretty good chance the only reason for that is because
I once asked someone to run chkdsk /r and a BC Advisor smacked me in the back of the head.

just did a system restore back two weeks. Works fine now..except IE9...it still locks up, but I just use other browsers. Sometimes I wonder what M$ is doing sometimes...seems the security updates just block the user from using their own computer...
