    Cannot Save in paint

    Hi there

    Got a slight problem, when i user tries to save something in paint they get the attached error message. I know its a group policy setting causing the problem no idea which one though.

    We are running Windows Server 2008 Servers with Windows XP clients (Vista theme used)

    Any ideas please?

    Thanks

    Are you sure it's not *where* they're trying to save? 'Recent Documents' isn't a folder you'd normally allow new files to be saved in...

    Do you have drive/my computer browsing disabled by a policy?

    What happens if you manually type a path in the dialogue rather than trying to browse - eg. H:\[enter] for your network drive?

    It is set in group policy that you can't browse the hard drive, you can get into my computer.

    If you type H: in the feild it allows you into your area.

    I've had the same on XP - are you using folder redirection anywhere? If so make sure it's set up properly

    I think i fixed it and it was my pictures redirection, the only way i can fix it after making the changes is clearing the roaming profiles. Need to find a way so it makes the changes.
