    Hi. I've been experiencing this problem for a little while now and (i'm not
    sure if this is the right forum but please direct me the right direction if
    it's not) it didn't occur long after I got Windows Vista. Anyways, When ever
    I attempt to do File > Save As or Open the dialog will pop up and then will
    cause the program that I did this in to hang and it will no longer respond. I
    have 3 users on this system that have administrative access and only 2 of
    them experience this problem whilst the 3rd user did for a while but all of a
    suddenly stopped. Can anyone please help??

    Thank you very much!

    I am having the exact same problem and on top of that, some of my
    folder icons have changed their default settings so they aren't right at
    all. I've been looking everywhere to a solution (I have run a full virus
    scan, registry cleanup, memory diagnostics, spyware/malware scans and
    there is nothing wrong with anything on my computer).
    It started out of no where, I can no longer save or load anything!

    Someone please post up a solution.

    Thanks

    I have been browsing around and found a solution someone posted up.

    open up registry editor (regedit in search)
    navigate to:
    HKLM>Software>Microsoft>Windows>Explorer>Shellicons

    These are XP icons and confuses the save as function when it is loading
    up icons.

    delete this registry entry.

    It works plus, all my icons have been restored! :D
