    IE opening alone..

    When I save an image from the web on google chrome, my favoured browser, the same image opens up in Internet Explorer, it's a damn irritant that's only been going on about a week, but I can't think why. Does anyone know?

    Sounds like a file association issue. Have you installed or uninstalled something recently that would possibly make a change to that association?

    it might have happened during a windows update. see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307859 . while it's been a while since I used XP (if I recall your OS correctly), I think you can right-click a file and 'open with' your preferred choice to override the default. The article above describes both.

    you can change that by clicking on right click of that image and then pressing "open with" there you can change it.
