take a screen shot of this image to take a screen shot hit Print Screen on your keyboard commonly found near the upper right hand side. Then go in paint and copy the image save it to a file. Once saved to a file please use image shack or photobucket to rehost the image.

**Correct me if I'm wrong this should show degraded quality from his screen/setup correct**

colour depth doesn't make an image pixelated, granted it looks crap but not pixelated with a low colour depth. sure you're not running at like 640x480 pixels?

could the images be formated to bitmap when there supposed to be jpg, hence the quality difference?

open the image in something else. Use word or powerpoint, or even MS picture viewer. See if that makes a difference. Paint is not the best program for viewing files.

The BMP and JPG formats are different. if you change the name from .jpg to .bmp it shouldn't open as the compression algarithims are different.

do they look fine in your browser?

Just remembered something... Reinstall your display drivers. Get them from Intel and reinstall them. This corrected a problem I saw last week.
