    I know I have read about others having this problem, but I can't remember the fix.

    Whenever I try to save a jpeg from the web, my PC wants to save it as untitled.bmp - how do I fix this?

    Muchas gracias!:cool:

    Actually, I am trying to save bass pr0n for mah screen saver.
     
  4. I used to go to "tools" and "Internet options" and delete my Temporary internet files. (not the cookies though) that used to do the trick for me...

    I dont use IE anymore though so i dunno if things has changed.

    I think it does that because of space issues or something.
