Possible problems with Internet Explorer version 6

Hello
My name is ian - i am looking for help please wih savings photos
I have recently upgraded my computer to a packard bell, which uses windows xp and internet explorer version 6. i am unable to get I.E. to save the photos i save from the net to my computer as jpegs (even though it says jpeg in the save as column) it just saves them as "a file" and IE wont display the picture. I need to save the photos onto my new computer from my website, as my previous computer, a tiny, did not have a cd writer.
what am i doing wrong please, do i need to alter any settings on I.e. 6
my previous computer, a tiny was using win 98 and I.E. version 5.5 displayed the jpegs as i saved them to a folder, which is what i an trying to do. i am the only family memmber who uses a computer and none of my friends know the answer to the problem.
i'd be grateful for help please to find the solution
thanks
ian

IE by default want's to save a web page picture as a bitmap. Save to desktop as bitmap, Use a program such as
IrfanView (Free) to convert bitmap to Jpeg. Transfer by
floppie disk.
