IE 6.0 Right Click Problem

    Folks,

    When I right click on top of an image on a web page and select "Save Picture as...", IE 6.0 always defaults to saving the image as a bmp file with the name "Untitled".

    This happens even if the images are jpeg files. What causes this and how can I change it so IE 6.0 saves the file as the correct type with the actually name?

    Thanks,

    Scott

    Empty out your temporary internet files & see how you go.

    Don't know why but from time to time, if you don't want the problem to return, that folder has to be emptied.
    Anyway glad it worked.
