    I just got a new harddrive for my laptop yesterday and put windows xp on it. Got all the updates, blah blah. I was trying to save an animated gif today and found that when I clicked "save as" it came up as "untitled" and only offered me the option of saving it as a bitmap. Then I tried to save a pic, and the same happened.

    I've recently found a pic that would let me save it as a gif or a bmp, and another that would let me save as a jpg or a bmp, but 90% of files seem to come up as "untitled" and only offer to be saved as bmp.

    I've tried clearing out my temporary internet files and the downloaded objects, as well as doing a disk cleanup. The problem continues. What's the deal?

    cue "quit using IE" response

    Oh, and I'm kind of having some trouble with pages loading. I click links and there is a pretty high frequency of "cannot be displayed", only to work once I refresh. I've never had this problem before...I wonder if my IE is fooked

    there was a recent windows update that screwed up a lot of people's IE... seeme to be related to having an HP Printer or other HP device connected to the computer.

    If it's just a problem with IE, you could try reinstalling it... if it's a problem with an update, you could uninstall the update.

    Clear your cache and then you should be able to save them as the right format. It's a problem that I had too.

    :mad: :p

    Double-check your "Documents and Settings" folder and then "Local Settings" folder and then "Temporary Internet". I'll bet you find your cache hasn't been cleared for either the owner or administrator profiles.

    I downloaded IE 7 beta 2 and it seems to have fixed my probs.

    Except now I have to fiddle with the font settings because they're different from IE6's standard:(

    I guess it's still kind of giving me problems loading pages (they'll load after a refresh) when I select a link from the pull-down menu of recent links.:confused:

    Maybe that advice is given often for a reason.
