Has anyone had the following rather odd problem?

I was surfing, saving images etc. and all of a sudden IE refused to save a jpeg picture as a jpeg. Rather, it insisted on saving it as a bitmap and calling it untitled, despite the fact that the image is in jpeg format on the webpage and has a clearly defined jpeg webpage name.

In the drop down box in the screen that appears once you click save as, where it usually gives the option of saving as a jpeg or bitmap there is now only the option to save as a bitmap.

Its very irritating because, if you are saving a series to a folder, you can't have the same save as name more than once, so you have to manually change the save as name each time.

I didn't change any settings or do anything. It just happened.

How do I get the save as command to regognise the jpeg format again? :thumbsup:

Try cleaning out your temporary internet files. When these get overloaded, it can sometimes cause your problem.
Cheers,

A file association might be messed up also. Have you recently installed any kind of picture viewer like scanner, camera, QuickTime player (usually with I-Tunes update), or any other application?

Hi John and Jason and thanks for the replies.

John - clearing out the temporary files worked a treat. Everthing is working again now. I didn't know that an overloaded temporary file could do this to your computer and its something really worth knowing.

Guess who's going to be running disk cleanup regularly from now on!!

Once again guys, my sincere thanks.

:thumbsup:

Happy to hear the solution was a simple as my recommendation. Keeping your temp files cleared, running scandisk, and---especially if you d/l pics etc., from the net---defragging on a regular basis will keep your computer operating at it's best.
Regards,
John
