    Why does IE only save all my pics as bitmaps and not jpegs? Everytime I save a pic it only allows it as bitmap? Is there a setting I can check to get it back to normal? thanks

    Images save as bitmaps only

    If you know the picture isn't a bitmap, but Internet Explorer will only let you save it as one, backup your registry and navigate to:

    For Content Type, it should say "image/jpeg". If it already says that, goto Start, Run and type in: regsvr32.exe /i shdocvw.dll

    Excuse me if I am having a "senior moment" - but wasn't one of the fixes for this clearing out your Temporary Internet File???? :confused: :confused:

    If so seems like registry hack wouldn't accomplish the same thing????:confused:

    this is a known bug in IE that has several causes, the most common of which being that the temporary internet cache is full. The solution to this is to empty your cache.
