    "Notify when download completes"

    Go to IE/Tools/Internet Options/Advanced

    See if thae above is ticked.

    ah you must excuse my poor problem-description skills then... or perhaps laziness/impatience... well either... anyway, that window comes up all fine and dandy just the button itself that opens the folder... doesnt open the folder... like ya know in explorer and all, and all i have to say, is wtf mate

    alas, windows!

    So the button is there but when you click on it nothing happens???

    Is it a recent problem? If so & you have ME or Xp try doing a system restore.
