Bitmap Save gives "A generic error occurred in GDI+"

I have a bitmap which I have retreived through the WebBrowser DrawToBitmap
method into a Bitmap. When I try to save the bitmap I get

"ExternalException occurred

A generic error occurred in GDI+"

Why can't I save the bitmap? I need to save it - how to do?

Well, the documentation states. "This method is not supported by this control", so I'm not surprised the resulting Bitmap isn't valid.

That's too bad! If I really must have a snapshot from the WebBrowser then -
what to do?

The strange thing is that I do not always get this error. Sometimes it just
works...

You may be able to save at times, but are those pictures any good?
