rgb192--I run IE9 on Wn 7 Ultimate SP1.  I get no "save image" option when I right click on a file and drag to "Computer".  I get "Copy Here" and "Move Here".  
If I left click and drag, when I drop the file it is dropped with no options, no prompts.
FWIW--"My Computer"  in Win 7 is called "Computer"

It is a security warning because you are moving a file from the internet zone to your computer "Do you want to allow files from this website to be copied to your computer".  You cannot turn this off, but you can use mozilla firefox and not get this security prompt. Also with firefox I actually get the image and not a webpage
