    I'm using IE7. Recently I can't save web pages with IE, because the option is
    greyed out, along with work offline, show menu bar and some others.

    I have tried,

    Emptying the browser cache,
    Resetting security settings,
    Enabling, then disabling Content Control,
    And resetting IE from Tools > Internet Options > Advanced Tab

    None of this worked, any suggestions?

    Please try the IE7 group.
    The recommended newsgroup is microsoft.public.internetexplorer.general

    In a proper newsreader:
    news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsoft.public.internetexplorer.general

    If you must use a web interface:
    http://www.microsoft.com/communitie...?dg=microsoft.public.internetexplorer.general

  5. Well, yes, but you neglected to state your IE version, your full Windows
    version, and what options are greyed-out in your new thread.
