All of a sudden, I can't move or copy files or folders to other folders on the computer. I'm running Windows 2000 Pro. When I try to move something, I get a popup that says that I can't copy or move from this zone due to security settings. I can't find where I can change this. Can anyone direct me to the solution?
I just noticed that I can move things on the C: drive into and out of folders. The problem appears to be related to moving things around on the desktop. If I try to move a file into a folder on the desktop, I get the cannot move into the zone due to security settings.
Thanks
Mark
