Re: Internet Explorer ver 8 and bitmpas
One or more options/settings in an ever-growing number of third-party
applications may be disallowing the change (i.e., opening BMP files in IE
instead of Paint) from "sticking." These include anti-spyware applications
(e.g., Ad-aware's Ad-Watch, Spybot Tea Timer, SpywareBlaster, SpySweeper,
Spyware Doctor, CounterSpy, WinPatrol, etc), anti-virus applications &
security suites (Norton, McAfee, ESET/NOD32, Kasperky, Trend Micro, etc.),
and third-party firewalls (e.g., Zone Alarm, etc.).
Note that temporarily disabling the application(s) or rebooting into Safe
Mode may not disable the application's system protections.
