Outlook - Save As on attachments


Running Windows 7 SP1 and Outlook 2007, when right-clicking a file attachment in an email and selecting "Save As..." the file extension is getting lost, saving a .pdf or any other file type as a .[nothing].
In the Save As... explorer box that appears the File Type is showing "All Files" and has no other options on the systems on which this is occurring, which is not all of the available Vista+Office 2007 systems here.
Any thoughts? The current work-around is to double-click the attachment to open it in the corresponding application (word, excel...) then save the file, as that works without any problems.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.
