When you right click on a picture and click on 'save picture as'...does it not have a .gif or .jpg option as well?

Try to right click on a picture, then choose properties. If the picture is a .jpg, then when you click on 'save picture as' that option should be in the drop down list.

There is actually an article about this problem on MS support. You may want to read it.

If all else fails, it may be best to just reinstall IE.
