    how do i set up ie so that when i click on a link, it will ask me if i want to open it or save it? when i click on a video file (avi, mpg etc..) it will ask, but when i click on an audio file, it will go straight to wmp.

    You might need to also go into media player and make sure those file types are not associated to media player.

    BINGO! You have to change the file associations. There is also another option within IE that will allow you to "integrate" WMP in with IE, or undo the integration.
