UGH! All of a sudden one day EVERYTHING I saved from a website...ANY WEBSITE...would only save as a .bmp! It didn't matter if it was supposed to be a .gif or a .jpg....it defaulted as a .bmp. WHY is this? What happened? Is this an IE 6.0 thing? I am ready to toss the thing out of the window!

Please help! It doesn't even give me an option to save it as anything else!

This happens to me sometimes too, in IE6 (WinXP Pro Sp1). It will try to save pictures as untitled.bmp and I am unable to change the format. Although this only happens once in awhile it is quite annoying. Anyone have a cure for this?

While in IE, Tools, Internet Options, Delete Files. This happens when your Temp space gets too many files.

It fixed it for a little while..not long at all. I did a thorough clean of everything!! Temp files, history, cookies....etc....from the cleaning program I have. I tried to save a graphic then....and I could save it in the correct format! 12 hours later....It doesn't work anymore :((

ACTUALLY...you know what? I just tried to save your graphic (the belt buckle) to see what would happen and it worked fine! Why does this happen?!??! Most of the time it DOES NOT WORK! :(

There could be something else going on in your system, most of the time clearing the temp files cache brings the system back to sanity. :)
