    Anyone know why when I put a picture into mspaint and want to save it, I don't get the option for GIF or JPG or anything else, just BMP?

    Work I only use paint because I do not have my own distribution of Photoshop 7 there... however, at home, I use Photoshop 7.

    errr... I haven't used paint in so long... must have been the older versions of Paint that didn't support anything but BMP. I stand corrected

    1 type of fix (don't ask how or why) was to clean out the temp folders. (not intenet files)
