wierd problem with saving stuff

  1. got a really wierd problem, when I click on a download in IE 6 it some times goes to normal save dialog box and everything is fine, then other times it wont display the save box it will just auto save the file in a temporary directory then opens the file, also outlook will not let me save certain files the box to save is just greyed out, seemed to happen at the same time, I've got NAV 2002 with the up to date definitions and ZAP pro with high security.
  2. bump! any 1 got any ideas other than formatting?

    I have the same problem but it doesn't bother me. You don't have to format your computer over such little problem, do you? :-D
  4. I just like to have my machine just so...

    yeah the right click and save should allow you to save to your specified directory... if it is a video/audio file or an exe file it will open if you click without saving and that is not so good when it is a virus or a porn program :D they are all viruses...

    so right click and save if you must

    no need to format..
