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?

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?

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..

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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
