Computer will not save pictures from internet

by rapp99 / September 12, 2007 11:49 PM PDT

I seem to be having trouble saving pictures from the internet. My computer just stopped saving pictures. I emptied out my cache/temp internet files and it still isn't working. I run windows xp and have both firefox and netscape. Firefox used to work and save pictures but then it stopped working, so I downloaded netscape and it worked but then stopped saving pictures as well. When I right click and save, the download box does not even come up anymore for either browser. Any ideas or help will be greatly appreciated... Thanks in advance.

some websites prohibit right-click save as

try this: right click and try to save the cnet logo at the top of this page. if you can save it, then the website you're trying to grab photos from is stopping you. if you can't save the cnet logo, then i'm stumped.

I tried to save the cnet logo, but that didn't work either... Thanks for the suggestion though. I really have no clue as to what happened, it just stopped working.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
