  1. Yes I have heard of Windows XP x64 being based on the Server 2003 and its IE8. And a just Google it response seems quite insulting. Though after visiting the site I posted I did notice that it was referring to a different problem, sorry about that, but Googling something completely different to what I need is, pointless really. Anyway I found the answer, in this site :-) here Link It want these registry entries that did the magic. [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\4] @="" "180B"=dword:00000000 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\4] @="" "180B"=dword:00000000 Also "Drag and drop or copy and paste files" is Enabled "Access data sources across domains" is Enabled (not sure about this one but it poped up in a couple of forums) And it doesn't seem to mind if the address put in the Local Intranet -> Sites is in the Server name or Ip address. (There was a mention of that being an issue) :-)
  2. Not helpful mate, I would have appreciated you taking the p*** if it was actually constructive. Did you even bother to read the post? Do you thing I havent heard about Google? do you think that my entire browser history dosent consist of entries of Google about my problem? I posted because it is an unusual problem that, well, should not occur, and im sorry if I assumed that such a question would be welcome, clearly I was wrong. :-/
  3. After five or six hours of total frustration I decided that I cant find the answear and I have to go to bed. My problem is that when I try to Copy or Paste something from a shared folder using drag and drop I get the "Windows Security Warning: Are you sure you want to copy or move files to this folder" I have put the shares in local Intranet -> Advanced -> Sites and I have Unticked the "Automatically detect intanet network" and ticked the rest. If I use Right-Click copy then paste, No warning, if I use Ctrl +C and V no warning. its just dosent like drag and drop. I also tried putting the address of the share in the Trusted Sites but that didnt work. I also saw in one of ms's sites that I should add a ( * ) to the end of the address "file:\\*" It then game me an warning about the address already being set in the Internet Zone, clicked ok and that didnt work ither. There was mention about a hotfix on ms's site but it didnt manage to download it (cant remember the kb) :-( I dont want to use any third party software because im setting it up for a netcafe. Apparently a person here My link found a solution, but the blog that the link if pointed to dosent really exist :-( There must be a solution, this is driving me insane!!! Also this is my first post here and im glad to find a forum with a part dedicated to Windows XP x64 :-)
