Should the constant part read
L"C:/"
or
L"C:\\"
? A slash is not an escape character and doesn't need to be doubled. C://xx is no valid file path under windows.

I think you need something like this:
lpPersistFile->Save(CString(L"C:\\")+m_web.GetLocationURL(),0);

#include <atlbase.h>


USES_CONVERSION;
CString s = _T("C:\\file1.txt"));

lpPersistFile->Save( T2CW((LPCTSTR)s) );

CString path;
path = _T("C:\\")+m_web.GetLocationURL;

lpDispatch = m_web.GetDocument();
lpDispatch->QueryInterface(IID_IPersistFile, (void**)&lpPersistFile);
*lpPersistFile->Save(path,0);
lpPersistFile->Release();
lpDispatch->Release();      

i get two errors still :
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\MyProjects\web\webDlg.cpp(193) : error C2664: 'Save' : cannot convert parameter 1 from 'class CString' to 'const unsigned short *'


C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\MyProjects\web\webDlg.cpp(189) : error C2297: '+' : illegal, right operand has type 'class CString (__thiscall CWebBrowser2::*)(void)'

the second one i think i can do with strcat

Didn't read second error message.

#include <atlbase.h>


USES_CONVERSION;
CString path = _T("C:\\");
path += m_web.GetLocationURL;

*lpPersistFile->Save( T2CW((LPCTSTR)path) ,0);

this how far i got with it

CString path;
USES_CONVERSION;
path = _T("C:\\");
path += m_web.GetLocationURL();
lpDispatch = m_web.GetDocument();
lpDispatch->QueryInterface(IID_IPersistFile, (void**)&lpPersistFile);
lpPersistFile->Save(T2OLE(path),0);
lpPersistFile->Release();
lpDispatch->Release();      

but it does not save the file to the c drive + the web site url

If using STL string s is an option:

int ind = 0;

while (ind != std::string::npos) {
   ind = str.find_first_of ("{/\:"*?<>|}");
   if (ind != std::string::npos) {
       str[ind] = '_';
   }
}
