"Error saving web page" problem...

Hi! I recently cold-installed Win98SE on my re-formatted HDD and use Internet Explorer6.1 - I've got all my security updates and service packs, etc. from Microsoft. I've done this before, normally with perfect results, but all of a sudden (but only 90% of the time...) I can't save web pages.

I'm trying to save as: Web Page Complete (htm, html) in Western European (ISO). Clicking on "Save" results in the activity bar filling to 100%, followed by the message "The web page could not be saved to the selected location".

Any suggestions? I've obviously experimented with all the combinations of "Save" type and encoding types, all to no avail.

Thanks!

Check if you have more than 200 MB of hard disk free. When the free space becomes less, Windows will give you resource error messages.

Do an Internet Explorer repair. You can repair 90% of IE problems and some Windows problems with the IE Repair. From Control Panel select Add/Remove Programs. Scroll down to Microsoft Internet Explorer and highlight it. Click on Add/Remove button. When the IE Tools comes up, select Repair. Click OK.

War1 - Sorry - I had actually replied to you at the time, but obviously the reply didn't get posted.

I've not managed to get the problem sorted yet, despite your helpful advice, so I'm using Mozilla at the moment, and have no trouble saving pages with that.

I guess I'll have to do another reinstall at some point, and see if it re-occurs.

Cheers!

Pete,
   Make sure the following settings are set in Internet Explorer. From the toolbar, select View > Encoding > Western European (ISO) is selected. And in the same area make sure View > Encoding > Auto-Select is selected.
   Let me know if this fixes your problem.

Best wishes, war1

Forgive my tardiness in replying. I tried war1's repair suggestion, which didn't seem to help, so I reformatted and did another cold-install, and thankfully the problem has not occured again. The same problem happened on my PC at home recently, and the repair suggestion worked on that machine, so thanks, war1.

Best wishes, Pete

I'm just not used to the protocol here. My apologies. I've now worked out how to award the question, and have done so. Thanks again. Regrds to War1. Sorry to keep him in suspense all this time! Oops! :-)
