my problem is when i go to save a picture from the net it only gives me the option of saving as a bitmap and i want to save as jpeg files so how do i stop pictures saving as bitmaps and save them as jpegs

you will have to save the pictures as they are then convert them afterwards you cannot convert them on the fly. i suggest installing irfanview, then instal the irfanview shell extension which will allow you to convert an image from the local (right click) menu in a directory without actually opening an application.

This is a known bug acknowledged by Microsoft when the IE cache becomes bloated. In IE go to Tools/Internet options/temporary files/ press "Delete files".
That should clear the problem.Then Jpegs will save correctly.
