    Hi all,

    I use PowerArchiver 2k2 and WinXP and thus IE 6. For whatever reason, when I go to click on a zip file on the net, it automatically downloads to some temp directory. How do I make it so it prompts me where I want to save the zips? I have already searched through PA's settings and didn't see anything and then I went into File/Folder settings in Explorer and it wasn't obvious there either.

    Any suggestions???

    Thanks as always!

    Go to folder options (controlpanel or Windows Explorer - tools) - filetypes. Find the zip-extension, highlight it, click advanced and check 'confirm open after download'.
    Might help, but I don't know PowerArchiver.
