    Default why can i only save jpegs as bitmaps?

    can anyone tell me why i can only save pictures or images from any site as bitmaps (.bmp) when i try to save i only get bitmap as an option and also the image is always untitled even though it has a name eg a cover from a covers site.
    This is doing my tits in as i have to convert them to jpegs later to save on size, could it be a virus?

    there's a microsoft tech note on this - and a solution
    can't remember it off the top of my head.
    It affects hotmail aswell!

    have a search on the microsoft site
