    Both shortcuts "find target" and "open" after download completes do not work !!


    Win Xp sp1 just cant figure out when it started and do not seem to find much info anywhere on how to fix it.

    Anyone got any ideas?


    Thanks

    well I think a reformat should fix that! I guess that's not the answer you seek though....

    This is really getting me, I know I've seen the answer to this but no amount of searching will find it :confused: :mad:

    As a last resort you could install xp over the top of itself so you dont lose anything, but I really dont know if it would fix it.

    Is it for all file types or just certain file types?

    You need to go to tools > folder options > file types

    find the particular file type giving you trouble and select advanced then check confirm after download.

    gl :)

    Ok looked at that but the file types all look fine , plus that would not explain the "find target" but confirm after download I checked on all types ... thanks will test now with a dummy download to see.

    No change very strange problem I must say :eek:

    Have you tried using Avant to see if the download manager in there works OK? (1mb download)

    It installs to a seperate folder so is easy to uninstall & uses IE. It is a 100% better than the native IE.
