outlook 2010 saving attachments

Seeing a strange issue within outlook 2010,

when a user gets a Jpg file as an attachment, he right clicks and saves it however instead of it calling it file.jpg, It calls it file (no extension) and the drop down shows as all files, so when you save it, its a non recognized file.

Any ideas?

call it file.jpg and save it to desktop. Then right click the file and do open as and pick the progam you want to open it with, it should remember the setting from here on out.

add the .jpg when it takes it away

Not sure if this is an office issue as much as it may be an OS issue
What OS is being used

Make sure its got the latest SP installed

Also make sure you have the latest SP for office 2010 installed

Did installing the latest Service pack for windows or Office resolve the issue?
