    Illustrator CS3 won't save ai files

    herbstonedesign

      I have Illustrator CS3 on Windows Vista Home on Dell Inspiron 530/530s

      I have had this software for quite a while, but just recently it has stopped allowing me to save as an ai file. I can save in any other format just fine.

       

      I have searched the web on this and tried every fix I saw, none of which worked. The most recent file is tiny, no fonts, 2 color! I was able to take it into Corel and save it as an ai and open it in Illustrator, but it would not resave in illustrator.

       

      I have tried saving to desktop, checked print spooling was on auto (it was) etc. etc. I did buy 2 new HP printers recently. One is a laser P1515n, and the other a ink jet Photosmart C4680. Beyond that, nothing has changed.

       

      This is a huge issue for me, and is causing down time trying to find an answer while being unproductive. HELP!?!~
