I have tried to find a solution to this problem that has cropped up in the past few weeks and for the life of me cannot solve it.

Using Internet Explorer in Windows 8.1 every time I try to save a picture by 'save picture as' there is a long delay then the window pops up where to save as and then the button is greyed out. It then comes back with a window popping up saying cannot access the picture folder.

The error shows network path not found.

 

I am not on a network. Its on a laptop.

I have had this before and a reformat was the only way around it. After a new install it crops up again after a while. No new programs are installed. I install the usual few programs after a new install then that's it. Nothing else.

 

This is really bugging me so any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Does this only happen with IE?
Have you tried using the Reset option (Internet Options > Advanced)?
What is the value in the registry address HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders\My Pictures?

Yes this only happens in I.E. I did a reset too and also did a remove from windows features, although I think that just hides it from the system.

The registry key is correct for the pictures folder.

Try going to the Metro control panel and look under SkyDrive>File Storage and turn off "Save documents to SkyDrive by default" if it's on. If you're not connected to a network and that's on there may be something blocking your system from using that feature.
