I am using a Windows 2000 system with Internet Explorer 6.0, and I download pictures from the Internet quite frequently by simply right clicking on the mouse and "save as".

Every instance in the past, this has automatically saved the picture as the same file name and graphic format (.gif, .jpg) as the picture I am viewing. However, just recently, I noticed that IE wants to save images as "untitled" and only gives me the option of saving as .bmp.

For instance, I can right click on a picture with the filename "picture.jpg" and IE wants to save it as "untitled.bmp"...and this only started happening recently. Is this a problem with IE or my operating system? I have tried resetting the settings to default in IE, but that doesn't work. What can I do? Thanks!

The general fix for XP is to clear all temp internet files. This often doesn't work the first time and you may need to close all IE's and do it again. Hopefully, the same will work for 2k.
