I' using Windows XP Pro SP2, fully updated.

Whenever I try to save pictures from the net, when I right click on the
picture, I get the error message "Could not complete the operation due to
error 8007ffff".

After a couple more attempts, I lose all operation of my right mouse button
in internet explorer.

I am using Internet Explorer
Version: 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_gdr.050301-1519
Cipher Strengh: 128-bit
Product ID: 55274-OEM-0015285-96452
Update Versions: SP2

I've done many searches on the net to find an answer, and people have been
posting this problem for 2-3 years, with many different OS's and Explorer
versions. It seems to be affecting huge amounts of people, but I can't find
anyone who's found an answer yet.

If I shut down and reboot, the problem temporarily goes away, but reappears
again after saving about 30 pictures.

I've run Norton Antivirus and don't find anything lurking. I've tried the
'repair' option on IE6, and no joy either.

I have de-installed my iBurst wireless software and re-install it and the
problem still appear.
I have played around with "Manage Add-ons and eventually come accross MSN
Toolbar. By disable the MSN Tollbar "msntb.dll", the problem is solved.
