    i don't know what happened, but everytime i try saving jpeg images from the web i can only save them as bmp's. for example, right-clicking a jpeg on my web page would tell me that i could only save it as a bmp. a week ago, it let me save them as jpg's. does anybody know how to fix this? :confused:

    I was having the same problem. What I did was goto Tools - Internet Options - Temporary Internet Files and click Delete Files .

    There's a profound statement... As much as I like Win2k I would'nt recomend that as a solution...

    Well, I also had the same problem, and I noticed that if I logged on as a different user, and then tried to save the same JPEG image, it did work fine and I could just save it.

    Using MS paint program gives you the option of what file type you want to use. Also a free dowload program called "ScreenShot Manager" that will allow you to take multiple screen shots by pressing the printScrn key and saving to whatever file type you want in paint program...
