    When im trying to download anything from the internet, since installing SP1, (mostly) everything, downloads to a temporary directory, and i dont have the option to use 'save target as'

    does anyone know why this happens? or experiencing the same problem?

    not heard of anything, run a virus scan and maybe that will show you some errors... Does the entire system freeze and explorer.exe crash?

    Next time right-click on it and use "Save As"

    Don't know exactly if this is the problem but you can go to folderoptions (either control-panel or from Windows Explorer - tools) - filetypes. Find the suffix of the files you want to download,click 'advanced' and check "confirm open after download".Might help.
    Especially with zip-files clearing temporary internet files sometimes does wonders.
