No, no embedding, just a simple save as files.

I infact logged in as this guy who's having problems, and I tried
to save webpage (any) to both the desktop and directly to the
c:-drive, without any luck though. It's almost as if there is
something fishy with his permissions. However when I checked those,
they seem ok. The problem user a local admin.

Any other hints?
