This question would be better placed somewhere in the the Internet Explorer
Discussions - however, I try to give some tips:
You can try using the Internet Explorer without AddOns, that would fix
problems caused by plugins from the OEM or other installed apps. To do this,
simply type "internet add" into instant search and you will see the "Internet
Explorer (No Add Ons)" - assuming transfer is possible without AddOns anyway.
If this doesn't fix
it, you can try to run the Internet Explorer as an
Admin. This could be needed if the site your uploading to uses a plugin that
needs admin rights.
To do this create a new shortcut on the desktop, choose "c:\program
files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe" as location then type a name for the
shortcut and execute it with right-clicking on the created icon and choosing
"Run as Administrator".
Finally, if it is a FTP site your uploading to, there are plenty of
FTP-Tools to control FTP-Site access and transfer. This can also be helpful
if there are a lot of files to manage or many different sites.
However, a friend of mine is working with Vista and also uploads a lot of
files & pictures via FTP onto his websites. Normally, it should work. It
seems like trouble specific to your PC or requirements of the site you're
uploading to. Maybe you can give more details about the problem - e.g. What
kind of site, does Windows Problem Reporting say something about the problem?
