IE6 open zip/rar files automatically

Hi all,
I have had the strangest thing lately.

My IE6 keeps on automatically opening zip and rar files (or any archive format) but I do get the "save" dialog on Exe and other file format.

The only turnaround this for me is to right click and select the "save as..." dialog. It is rather annoying though...

Does anyone have a perm fix for this?

*Edit: I am using Win XP Pro SP1

Thanks in advance,
Balmy

First Welcome @ NTFS.org :happy:

Try this: in Folder Options (Windows Explorer>tools or control panel) on the file type tab, find the extension, say zip or rar, highlight it and click advanced and make sure that "confirm open after download" is checked. If this doesn't work look for any settings in your archiver program(s). WinZip for instance has so called browser extensions.
