Can not attach files and send using web email and vista

I am running Vista business and HP on two separate machines. Both are top spec and rate 4.5 or above on their vista rating. The problem i have is that i cannot attach and send files (of any size) using web based email like yahoo/hotmail/gmail. I create a new email and search as normal for the file i would like to send and once double clicked to add file it goes back to the new email message and just sits there trying to attach the file. This happens in IE7/Firefox/Opera. If i use my works OWA it sends the files ok?. I have uninstalled all security software and anti-virus agents. I have reset all browsers back to original settings and deleted all temp internet files/cookies ect ect. Has anyone come across this before and if so how can i rectify it as its driving me nuts !!!.

If your using Norton or McAfee they will cause problems like the one your having now. If not, go into Network and sharing Center and adjust settings for sharing as well as the firewalls.

How to send a 'Favorite' site

You didn't say HOW you want to send it.

But, in email, you can copy the URL (in the address bar at the top) and paste it into the email.

For me, if you put it on a separate line, this usually creates a clickable link.
If not, the recipient can copy the link and paste it in the address bar to have it go to that web site.

Why are downloads attached to emails I receive only downloading to 99% and then quitting?

That would be a Mail Server issue... not talking correctly to your eMail Client... or vice versa. I would contact your eMail Hosting Company to see if you have your settings set correctly. Files could be too big or you are just timing out with the Server. If you can read the attached files in Web Mail then it is the communication from the Server to your Client eMail

Trying to email charts to another email. Can you help me? I have wondows vista

Not enough info, but I'll try.With the file closed, Right click on the icon for it. If you don't know how, look at pic below. Put your cursor on the file and click right mouse button 1X. A drop down menu comes up. Go to send to and click on "mail recipient." Another way is to have your file open in whatever program you made it. Go to file (top of your screen) and click on it. Drop the menu down and choose SEND, or maybe export. You can choose to attach it or send it like a page. or
If you tried to email it and it won't go through, it may be too big. Right click on the file icon again. A drop down menu comes up. Click on send to. Then compressed Folder. In the future, try to tell us what kind of computer and programs you use. It would be way easier to help.

How To Make Vista Bootable DVD with WIM Downloaded Files If you have purchased Windows Vista online and taken the delivery of the latest operating system via web download from Windows Marketplace, you would ends up with a few downloads with .wim and .exe file extensions. Rather than paying additional shipping and handling charges, you can burn or create a bootable ISO DVD image from downloaded Vista files with the following trick, where the .iso image can subsequently write to a DVD. The DVD created will be the typical 32-bit Windows Vista DVD that available in retail channel, and can be used to clean install.

How to make a bootable Windows Vista ISO DVD media

1. Put all 3 downloaded files (namely install.wim, boot.wim and an executable X13-49120.exe) in the same folder (for this tutorial, let’s assume the files are put on C:\ else you need to modify the path accordingly).
2. Run the X13-49120.exe executable. Windows Vista Setup Preparation will create a new folder “Vista” inside the folder and will populate the folder with all necessary Vista setup files which takes up about 2.52 GB disk space.
3. Exit from the Install Windows screen.
4. Download CDimage 2.52
5. Extract CDimage from to the C:\ root directory.
6. Open a command prompt shell, and run the following command:

cdimage.exe -lVISTA_EN_DVD -m -u2 -bC:\Vista\boot\ C:\Vista\ C:\Vistax86.iso

Bootable Windows Vista x86 DVD ISO image in UDF format will be created as vistax86.iso in C:\ or any folder you specified above.
7. Burn the newly create ISO with a CD/DVD burning software such as Nero or Alcohol 120%. Try to burn at low speed (i.e. 4X) and turn on verification to ensure that the DVD creation is fine.

Create a Windows Vista ISO image and DVD with Oscdimg

Another possible way to create a bootable Vista ISO and DVD is by using Oscdimg CD-ROM and DVD-ROM Premastering Utility, available via WinPE (Windows Preinstallation Environment) via Business Desktop Deployment 2007 or Windows Automated Installation Kit (AIK)

1. Complete step 1 - 3 as above.
2. In the command prompt window, run the following command:

oscdimg -bC:\Vista\boot\ -h -u2 -m -lVISTA_EN_DVD C:\Vista\ C:\VistaDVD.iso

A VistaDVD.iso UDF DVD image will be created and can be used to boot the computer from DVD to install Vista.
3. Burn the ISO image file by using last step above.

Did you check your acceptance-of-cookies setting? You won't get an error message if your browser is set to reject all cookies.

Also, what version of IE are you running on the two machines, assuming it is IE you are using and not Firefox or another kind of browser.

Nothing's ever simple, is it?
