    I suppose there's a good reason (apart from stubbornness) why I still save all my documents in .doc format and don't use .docx. Now I know why.

    Thanks, everyone, for your help. I finally gave up and did a System Restore. It restored to 19 MAR 2014, two days ago. When Windows started up, I tried to save a web page, and the dialogue box opened...

    I take it that "rinse and repeat" was a subtle humour; it's like the instruction on a bottle of shampoo: lather, rinse, repeat.
