    Got a new computer with Vista Home Premium installed.

    Just uploaded some digital photos to my pictures folder in documents main folder.

    went to attach the new photos to a email and get the error msg above.

    I am logged in as an admin level

    Is there something I need to reset to allow me to attach files in the documents top folder?

    thanks

    dave

    Thanks, that worked!

    I am still wondering tho why access denied comes up

    I turned UAC off and still get the access denied msg

    maybe this is more progress, at this time not sure Vista is any better than XP
