Downloading images in JPEG not BMP format

  smartieb 13:41 01 Jun 2005

Could someone please help me with my internet settings.
Until recently when downloading images off the net i was always offered the JPG format. Recently the only format i am offered is BMP which i don't want.
I have had this problem before when using aol i know the solution.
I am know using internet explorer and have emptied my history folder, temp folders etc but i am still only offered the bmp format. Does anyone know how to set up internet explorer so as not to compress to bmp format.
Could aol companion be causing this problem as this is the only aol software still on my computer. Apparently this problem is common with aol but not other search engines?

Try that, it usually solves the problem.

It's usually a good idea to do it before you run your Anti-virus or De-frag your HDD
