Okay.... I am ashamed to say it, but I have a problem..... Whenever I go to download a *.zip file, it "opens the file in it's current location".... I know that this is probably going to be a quick regedit fix, but I havr no idea where to start looking, and I really don't want to re-install XP again if I screw up.

I would check my winzip preferences.

You can always back up your registry to a floppy first...:confused:

Not running Winzip.. I'm using winrar, and it's a IE preference each time you download something...it has the little box that says don't ask me again... apparently my mom was making my life easier by pushing the button to make it go away, but instead of choosing download everytime, she chose to have it open it each time instead... but yeah backing up to a floppy probably would work.... I'm running XP, it'll probably fix it self if I screw up, but there is still the ingrained fear of the registry from win98... thanks though

once in IE : Tools > Options > Security > Default Level

Then if you had custom levels you will need to re apply them. :)

Thanks, I'm at work now but I'll give it a shot when I get home... it's amazing to believe it's that simple... maybe I shouldn't be a mentor :D (hey if everyone else is going to say it I get to join in too)

Well guess what.... It didn't work... I tried to dowload a .zip and the damn thing just opened from current location.... it's okay though, as soon as I get my XP cd back I'm going to re-install ( I NEED styleXP) I have nightmares that the XP teletubbieness is going to get me

Actually we had a discussion on his sig, he choose it himself. I had nothing to do with that one. Besides, do you really think that I would get bored one night when I couldn't sleep, that I would go around and change the Super Mods/Mods/Mentors user text?
