    I've got the latest (ver 6 I think) from SP 1.

    When I try to save pages, it won't let me or it'll save 35% and then it'll say the webpage can't be saved at the current location.

    I've tried other locations but that doesn't work either.

    Any ideas?

    Try emptying everything related to IE. Temp files, history etc.

    If that doesn't work try repairing IE.

    Does it change anything if I empty some IE folders.

    Like, are there any consequences?

    C:\Documents and Settings\YOU\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files.

    This folder needs to be emptied regularly for IE to keep working properly. When I used IE I did it about once a month. Nothing bad will happen. It just starts to fill up again & you will have to log onto some sites again.

    Try going to Internet Options - Programs Tab & Click on "Reset Web Settings". This may or may not help - it cannot hurt. You can then go to the ADVANCED tab and put a tick in "Empty Temporary Internet Files Folder When Browser Is Closed."
