IE Auto-opening .zip files!


WinTMBG Professional
Alright, so I guess I screwed up SOMEWHERE this morning...

Whenever I left-click on a .zip file to download it, Internet Explorer never give me the option to "Save" or "Open", it just downloads it to open.

Not really that big of a deal, because I can just right-click and do "Save As", right? Well, normally, yes. But if I'm clicking on something on a Flash page, then I'm screwed, because I don't get normal right-click stuff on a Flash page.

Any help to get this thing back to normal is appreciated. Thanks. :)
