I can't download some files.

#1
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.

Nope. I download a wallpaper and it's the same story. I can download to the desktop
but can't to the any folder inside of "my docuements"

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.

Alex which is your default browser? Also have you checked for malware? If not try running this free app:

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