    Even after restarting the computer several times, when I click on a link to a zip file the "open" button is greyed out any you have to save it. This is really annoying and has only just started happening today.
    Could someone plz suggest a way to fix this?

    Thanks,
    Patrick

    No I don't think so...
    I'm still running 6.0.2600
    And I know it's not supposed to be like that because my other computer is doing it like normal. The only thing I did update was norton.

    I've been having lots of similar problems when running XP .. The only suggestion I have for you is to format your computer in NTFS (with the win xp cd) and install from scratch .. It solved ALL of my problems !!

    Good luck !

    bit of a drastic option, format your hard drive just to open zip files. is opening zip files really that important? personaly I never open anyfiles driectly always save to to disk first that way I can scan for virus and I may need the file again

    but any way this here person thinks they've found a solution to your problem

    You're a wise man, Khayman.

    Always save downloaded files for the reasons that Khayman gives.
