Default Windows XP Images


I've been having problems when I save images in Internet Explorer. If I right-click on almost any image and select "Save Picture As...," the saved file will not work, i.e. Paint gives the error "Paint cannot read this file. This is not a valid bitmap file, or its format is not currently supported." As I said, this happens for almost every image. GIFs seem to save properly, but .JPG/.BMP don't work.

If anybody knows how to fix this problem, help would be appreciated.

Send a message via AIM to Win2kpatcher

changed the file type so that it opens with Windows Picture viewer and that should take care of it maybe ;-)
