    90% of the time when I go to save a picture (right click, save as) the box comes up that asks what you want the name to be and the format. It shoudl say .jpg or something to that effect right? Well, my friends, it doesn't! It's highly pissing me off!!! It tries to save it is .art or .bmp those are my only options.... wtf are those??? If I save it as a bitmap when I go to reopen it, it comes up plain white saying no preview available. If I save it as .art when I go to reopen it, it says it's not a valid format or something like that. What the hell happened?? It started doing this not long ago and I can't figure out why! PLEASE HELP!!!

    clear your internet cache, that fixes the .bmp only file saving option.

    I'm assuming you're using Internet Explorer ...


    Open IE > Tools > Internet Options > Under the temporary internet files there's Delete Files - click on it, depending on when the last time it was done this might take a long while to do.

    Do not do anything else until the hourglass disappears.
