animated gifs

Sorry if this is the wrong newsgroup, I wasn't sure where to post this.
I am trying to download and save some animated pictures to my hard drive.The
images are from legitimate sites especially made for this reason. I am
having problems saving them as GIF images. Mostly I can only save them as
BMP files. Then the animations don't work. When I right click on the image
on the website and go into properties, it says GIF image. So I think the
problem must be my end. Is there something I can do to save these images so
that I can use them as they are intended -animated gifs. Some do save but
they save as paintshop pro images which enable me to see the animation. But
as I intend putting them on my website I am not sure that they will be
available for others to see.
Sometimes I get an error message box up when trying to save it, which reads
" The system cannot find the file specified" Then it will change from being
saved as an GIF image to an untitled BMP file.
I have noticed that some JPGs that I have saved on my pc show as ulead photo
express files, and other BMPs save as or will open in Paint shop pro. I am
not sure why they wont all open with the same program. I cant seem to set
the preferences or the file association without causing files to not be
available to open.
Can someone please offer me some help?
If not can you please suggest the correct newsgroup.
Many thanks in advance

No joy there. My Temp Internet Folder doesnt contain anything like that.
Whilst a work around is ok, I really need a fix.
Thanks so much for your reply, any other ideas please?

Empty the Temporary Internet Files

Use Tools | Inernet Options to delete all your temporary Internet files and
try again. Sometimes if your Temp files are "full" you get this "bmp" thing.

Thanks for your replies,
I have already deleted temp internet filess over and over, and have deleted
offline content too, but sadly it still wont work for me.
Any other possible fixes please?

You could try using Firefox instead. I would also recommend CCleaner from
http://www.ccleaner.com/ to properly clean all the temporary files from your
PC.
