    Hello. I have windows xp sp3 with last updates. Today, I tried to download a png-image with google chrome.
    But it told me that it didn't have enough permissions. I tried to disable firewall and antivirus. All was without any change. Afterwards, I tried it with Opera-brouser. But nothing change.
    However, I can download image file with internet explorer to the same place, so my download filder have necessary permision. am I right? And it is really strange because opera can donwload exe and other type of file.
    So could anyone suggest an idea of why I can't download image files with a browser.
    Thanks in advance.

    It may be that the website is restricting you from downloading the image.

    So I found out that it is problem with "my documents" and its sub-folders exactly.
    None of the browsers can't save files to this folder except IE.
    I checked the permissions for recording. Everything seems to be correct.
    I also change the location of "my documents" but it didn't help as well.
    I really don't know what the point is.
    Hope that someone will help me.

    To be a sauerkraut, XP support has ended totally. You must upgrade your OS. No offense.
