    Can anyone help. I run one PC with Vista HP and one with Vista Business. Whilst using both i cannot attach files to emails using web based sites like yahoo/gmail/hotmail. It is the same for all sites. I have used different browsers to no avail. When you choose the file to attach it just sits there and does not attach the file although it says its trying. The browser doesnt hang and neither does the web page being viewed. I have uninstalled my internet security software and disabled the windows firewall. My router has a firewall but if i use XP then i have no problems at all. Any suggestions ?

    Try moving the file your attaching to the shared folder on your drive. It may be some sort of vista security thing which has messed up and stopping it from working properly.
