    In Internet Explorer, I can't "Save Picture As" a .GIF file (or whatver it is). Internet Explorer only gives me a .BMP option.

    I know Microsoft lists this as a known problem.

    When I select Tools, Options, General tab and select the Delete Files button - my IE freezes up - it is too many files for it to handle.

    If I go into the Temporary Internet Files directory and try to delete all the files, it freezes up my Windows Explorer. I have to delete the files one-by-one - this takes forver.

    Any ideas?

    Try Safe Mode or boot into command and go to the directory and delete the files. When you restart press F8 and make the selection.

    If Windows gives you a hard time deleting your temp internet files Ki-Washer will do it for free.

    Until you can sort out the save file as problem InFran View will convert those BMP files to GIF for free.
