Whats goin on everybody,
im having this problem with IE6 , used to happen on my win98 machine but a restart would ususally resolve it now it happens alot more often on my xp, i find a pic on the net and i want to save it ok? so rather than getting the name of the pic as displayed on the link above or in the properties (eg blah.jpg) i get untitled and bitmap as the only option, same for gifs just tried it with the crucial ad on the top of the page,

the problem with this setup is

1. Its extremley pissing off wrotong in the name of every pic you save when thats usually done for you

2. I go from a 100kb to like 1 and a half megs or something making it very hard to send by email post on forums etc since its so large

As always the help and support of all you guys out there is greatly appreciated :)

not really sure ..but maybe your associations with .gif and .jpeg are messed up ...possible associating the files with Windows Picture and Fax Viewer will solve the problem??

clear IE's history
to avoid this go to IE setting and increase the amount of disk space.
when you have no space left in IE cash windows will save everything as bitmap not jpeg.

Thanx yoyo I knew I read it somewhere and was in the right area. I've got it as a favorite now in my XP folder for future reference - in case of another senior moment!!!;)

Wow! i didnt expect so many replies so quick! thank you all, the advice you provided has been invaluble, as it turns out emptying my cache had not solved the problem but the link yoyo provided (special thanx there dude) helped me identify the problem and i too have added it to my favorites, ill have to log on to sites directly now rather than bieng lazy and typing username: password@http etc

Thanks again everyone!:)
