I'd install SP1&2 if it would help... but since it's on Win7 too ... that's a lot of downloading to rush to do right now, given that it's not likely to fix it. I do add all the updates suggested, so probably have SP1&2 equivalent.
Appears to be an older problem, but with googling, I'm not finding a solution anywhere!!
Using IE8 and FF, downloading files crashes that browser - but only once "browse" is selected to pick a folder to download into. Same crash happens once "browse" is picked when attaching file to comcast webmail.
I'm using Vista with all suggested updates, but it's seems to be reported with Win7 too. It's reported online by Chrome browser users too. I haven't installed SP1 or SP2 onto Vista yet.
I downloaded a new version of FF and that helped because it downloads to a default folder, so you don't have to "browse" for a location.
It started sometime after I upgraded to IE8, but it's since it's not browser specific it shouldn't be a factor.
I used webmail and downloading just fine on an XP computer with IE7.
So it seems to be browser independent, but crashes the browser in use. Doesn't hit error until folder (to select where to put it) is opened. Happening on Vista, but something similar-sounding is reported on Win7 as well. I'm assuming it's a Windows or a common compatablity problem.
Any help would be great! Where would I report this to on MicroSoft's sites and hope for a reply? THANK YOU!
