Hi all. I am using IE6 with winxp and whenever i click on links to download
zip files it is saved automatically to temporary internet files folder
without prompting where the file i would like to save. I have checked my zip
files setting under "folder options"->"files type" and have confirmed that
"confirm open after download" option is enabled. How do i solve this so that
i would be prompted where to save the files. Thks in advance.

1... Click start >> Control Panel >> Double Click Network and Internet
Connections >> Double click Internet Options, on the IE Properties window
you will see these Options:
General | Security | Privacy | Content | Connections | Programs
| Advanced .

Click on Security Tab then Custom level. On security Settings-Internet Zone
scroll to this:
[v^]Downloads
[&] Automatic prompting for file download s
(*) Disbale
Click [OK] then click clickon Advanced tab and scroll down under
browsing option.
[&] Browsing:
[ ] Notify when Downloads complete

Click [Apply] then Click [OK] and see if the download prompt will show you
donwload complete and you want to save or Open.

If he did then we can't help it and we can't assume that unless he/she come
back and say so!
