What browser are you using? If it is IE and you don't mind, you can revert the whole browser to its complete default settings via Tools > Options > Advanced (tab) > Reset... > Reset

It says to only use it if the browser is unstable, but I use it all the time when something goes nuts that is IE related.

Hope it helps :)

You probably checked the "Always do this for this file type" box.

What's your OS?

For XP (and probably older Operating Systems) read "Disable Automatic Opening or Saving of Downloads (Re-enable Always Ask Before Check Box)"

For Vista read "Reset Always Ask Before Opening This Type Of File Check Box in Vista IE
"


so if i'm right, after i've unticked what it said, i have to double-click regedit in ??????? and then it will turn back into normal?

is it actually required @ all?

ok, so it looks like the only thing that needs to be disabled for is the .zip/.rar files
