This happens for everything i download now.. any ideas why and how to fix it
just a suggestion...check your security settings in tools->internet options
isn't that just the standard download box
......oh i see what you mean, D'oh!
I know its not likely but you do have a program assigned to open zip files?
erm settings look okay.
Got winzip, winrar and winace. Winzip is assigned to .zips
Are you sure it's for every download?
I get that sometimes too...
I know I am blind, but what is wrong with the download box?? I am sure I will feel stupid when someone tells me.
I'm having the same prob! it will let me open like exe files and a couple others but not zips,rars,aces etc. I have installed IE SP1 but I uninstalled it. Is this something that IE SP1 could have left behind?
i had it before and after IE6 sp1
And no i dont get it every time, just when i want to open stuff ;D
Look at the button on the left, Open is not clickable
Im not sure, but i think that ie patch that just came out is doing this to us.
Its gota be, this didn’t start till i restarted after installing the update. My friend just installed the update and he has the same probs..
yeah that's what I thought also. Now its just trying to figure out which one did it.
yeah...it must be the patch that is causing it. I installed it yesterday and now i am having the exact same problem.
damn, i just figured that out now too, =( damn M$
http://windows.jaha.dk/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=getit&lid=4 het myIE from this site. You will not have a problem then.
The best way to find out what happend, is to compare the registry of someone that doesn't have this problem, with someone that has it, and see if there's any option missing for the Internet Explorer key or something like that.
I haven't noticed it did that for rar files too. Question. To all of you that have this problem, which version of WinRAR are you using?
i dont have any problem at all so i dont know what you guys mean. But i have noticed that with one of the old windows 98 tools will fix it. When i am at home again ill check what it was.
I've found the fix for that problem. I've created a thread to explain it. You can read it there:
Hope that helps!
