Picture saving problem (please help)

i cant seem to save images from the internet. whenever i try to save a picture i right click, save image as, i can either save as bmp or art, after i save i go to the picture but it says "no preview available" and the picture doesnt work. what ive been having to do is open paint, copy the picture, paste it on paint, and then save it as a jpg from there. is there anyway i can fix it so i can just go back to right clicking instead of going through the paint process? thanks.

My recommendation would be for you to switch to a browser that doesn't suck. Look into Firefox, Mozilla, or Opera.

If you're determined to stick with IE, you can try Tools>Internet Options>Delete Files. That'll delete the files in your cache and sometimes that'll fix the problem you're having.

Firefox will let you save the pics in their native format and filename. That's about I can recommend about it. I tried it for about a month, and found I prefer IE. So shoot me.
