This may be related if you want to save files from Internet for blogging.
Encountered this in the past which I can only save as untitled bmp format although it is jpg format & I did not bother. Usually, I overcame this by renaming file to JPG extension and it will still work. Only that the file size is HUGE.
Finally, found an answer for it.
Go to IE Tools, Internet Options, General tab and delete all temporary internet files.
Check for damaged files in ..\downloaded program files (accessed via IE Tools->Internet Options->Temporary Internet Files Settings button->View Objects button). If found, right click and select update or delete depending on what are they, and whether they are needed.
