All of a sudden I'm unable to save any kind of file to various folders on my computer, including c:\users\me\desktop. Also unable to be saved to is c:\users\me\downloads. Other locations under c:\users\me are, however, okay.

When I create a new file (say, a text file in Notepad) and try to save it to c:\users\me\desktop I get the following popup:

Note that the popup is headed 'Save As', but I get it when I try to save any file that doesn't already exist on the desktop.
