    I clean installed Windows XP a week ago and on the old install I had a problem whereby if I clicked on a zip file the:

    Open | Save | Cancel | More info

    Did not appear, instead automatically starting the download.

    How do I fix this problem?

    Sure Jewelzz :)

    Click on My Computer,
    Tools | Folder Options | File Types,
    Under extenstions, find the .ZIP extension,
    Click Advanced,
    Tick the box which says "Confirm open after download",
    Click ok and


    Problem solved :)

    Was that verbose enough Jewelzz? :)
