    I have an easy problem to solve, when I click on .zip links it always saves from the location (to temp folder) instead of letting me save it to my computer. I want to know how i change it back to the way it ought to be?

    I am on winXP professional

    off the top of my head (not in xp right now), i think it's something like this:

    - open a windows explorer window (e.g. open My Computer; not internet explorer)
    - go to Tools->Folder Options
    - go to File Types tab
    - find the .zip listing (should be at the bottom)
    - highlight listing
    - click on "Advanced"
    - make sure "Confirm open after download" is checked.
    - done
