That's in Win. 95 through 2000's paint. Their is no way to fix it, you'll need a new image editor.

It's an Internet Explorer problem, right? Either get a good browser, or maybe get a download manager like Flashget. Flashget lets you drag a picture from a browser to its dropzone and it'll save it for you. Or else let IE try to save the thing as a .bmp, then rename the file back to its original filename and see if that works.

I've had that problem before. It usually fixes when I reboot. *shrug*

that wouldn't be a problem if my Paint still worked (every time i try to save in paint the pc crash)

Save it to your desktop, then right click it and click 'rename' once it's name is highlighted rename it to *.gif (replace * with the files name).

Paint ain't working?

Sounds like you messed up some system files somewhere then, maybe you tried to install an older version of something onto XP - dunno why the File Protection didn't catch it then. Try a repair Reinstall? :D
