Running XP Pro. This problem started recently. When I save a picture from a web page. If I change the file name and then save it, it saves as a "file" type file and I can't open it. But if I save the same picture without changing the name, it is saved in the jpeg format. And I can change the name later without any problems. A security setting ?

When you change the file name before saving, are you unintentionally deleting the file extension?
That's my guess.
Instead of saving it as "picture" make sure you type in "picture.jpg" and it'll work.
