    IE6 only saves images as BMPs (6.0.2800.1103.xpsp1.020828-1920)

    Greetings,

    I hope this isn't a painfully dumb question, but here goes: For some reason, my Internet Explorer (6.0.2800.1103 SP-1, using WinXP Pro on a Dell P-III 933) can only save an image from a website as a BMP file (when it is actually a JPG), and it never takes the name of the image either. (i.e. when I right-click on an image and try to "save picture as...", the file name is always suggested to be "Untitled" and the only file format choice is BMP.) When I view the same image in Opera and save it, I can save as a JPG without a problem. Is there a setting I've changed inadvertantly? Is this a bug or a feature?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks! <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    Thanks, Bruce. After looking at the threads you pointed me to, I ended up using the Spider to clean IE's plumbing. Everything seems to be working well, as you predicted in your other posts. (Sorry I missed them in my search; I must have searched the wrong forum or with the wrong strings.) Anyway, thanks a lot for your help.
