This civic! I right click and do a "Save Picture As..." (after opening it in a new window) and the only file type from the drop down box is bmp! I've upgraded XP Pro to SP1 and IE6 to SP1. For the last few months, i've been circumventing this by just doing a "E-Mail picture" where it would open up outlook express and I would just drag the picture out of the insert area where it is still ing jpg form. Much more time consuming than doing a regular "Save Picture As..." would. Any ideas?

I can save it in jpg fine. that's the first file type it shows up for me.
I'm using I.E6 with the update.
