Outlook - Save As on attachments

Experts,

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.
