    I can no longer save any images in JPEG format, all images go to a default of bitmap when I try "save picture as".
    I can't seem to get the files to associate, or see the file type.
    Here's a screen grab of a JPEG pic that I would like to save as a JPG file, but as you can see the "type" isn't available

    Did you change or uninstall your default photo viewer? That's the way it appears and now it is using paint as you default viewer. Right click and Open With Microsoft Photo Editor or something similar

    Empty your temporary internet files and then restart IE.
