Can't save any new files! Please help!

Post by that_funny_guy » Thu Jan 17, 2008 12:12 am

I'm having a problem with my Windows XP. I've had the computer shut down for a while. I finally got around to plugging it back on already. But now when I try to download a new program and save it, when I shut down my computer, it would not be there anymore. And same thing with my Windows Media Player. I will upload my library from my files of music onto WMP and when I start up my computer, it would not be there.

But strange thing is, when I sign on to guest, all the things I have downloaded and loaded are saved. Please help! I'm pulling my hair out.

Sounds like the save location isn't to your personal folders, but to 'All Users'.

Check that you are saving to a location that is on your personal profile - I always use Desktop initially, then move them to an appropriate folder later.
