There's also many other reasons so do not get upset when these don't fix it.
1. Run Disk Cleanup and cleanup the TEMP folders.
2. Does JPEGIM32.FLT exist?
Long technical read at http://www.angelfire.com/moon2/xpascal/GRPHFLT.HTM
I do much design work using MSPaint and producing .bmp files. Sometimes I wish to email these files, so I first convert to .jpg for obvious space reasons. Until now, I had no problems converting .bmp to .jpg and vise versa, but on my new PC, I can only convert .jpg to .bmp . When I open a .bmp file, and try to save as a .jpg file, I get the message ….....
<<< Paint cannot save this file. Save was interrupted, so your file has not been saved >>>
Until now, I got round this by transferring the .bmp file to a external disc, linking the latter to my old PC, converting to .jpg, and transferring back to my new PC. Much too wearisome!!! Anyone know the problem, and its solution?
So the only guess is how Microsoft tried recently to kill off MSPaint and could have messed it up.
But I don't see where you tell me about the the filter file or much else. It's really hard to guess why without details.
I'm guessing all the way here as I don't know if it's W10 or other.
It´s the old MSPaint from back to XP days which I alwys passed onto to the next Windows Version PC without problems; I`m using it still without problems on my old W7. I´ve always preferred its layout, and as usual Microsoft has to go and spoil everything. Like MS Office - I´ve turfed the latter out, and quite happily use Open Office. I also use Mozilla Thunderbird over MS Outlook. These alternatives are in part better (eg Excel with Open Office and, and ...........)
I have now +- solved the issue by just opening a bmp file using Photoshop, then saving it as a jpg file. Only slightly an extra burden than doing it with MSPait but otherwise acceptable. Perhaps THEY (the Microsoft Gods!) are now attacking their good old Software.
