Unable to save web pages ​error - This Webpage could not be saved

For the past couple of weeks,a problem with the "Page" button as suddenly appeared! I don't know whether that was caused by recent dld's I installed from "Important updates" or not,but this is a real annoyance,which I hope can be fixed simply and quickly! The problem is this: When I click Page and then "Save as",regardless wether it's to be saved as  MHT,HTML or other..I now get a small window that says"Error Saving Webpage" and "This Webpage could not be saved".Can someone help me fix this? I have Windows 7 Home Edition.Thank you.

Hi,
Thank you for the quick reply.1-I use Internet Explorer 2-The only changes that could affect my computer that I can think of is:recent "Important" critical updates I dld from MS! I tried Method 1 as you suggested,and just as the page opened, another Window plunked itself right in the middle of the page,and completely Froze my Computer.The Window was as follows:INTERNET SECURITY
                                            A Web site wants to open Web content using this program on your computer:
                                            Name: Silverlight.configuration.exe
                                            Publisher: Microsoft Corporation
                                            Alow              Don't Allow
Clicking either Allow or Don't alllow provided absolutely no response,so I had to reboot the computer! Any suggestion as to what we can do next? Thank you.

Run the “Fix it” from the following article:
Disclaimer: Please note that resetting Internet Explorer (IE) settings will reset all user-defined settings including those set by installed extensions, toolbars and other add-ons to IE Defaults. This includes all Security, Privacy and Zone settings. Also this will clear browsing history, delete all temporary Internet Files, cookies, form data and especially all stored passwords.
