    Hi, im having a problem with downloading, today i was downloading a few programs and after i had downloaded a couple of them all the sudden the way i download changed , usually i click on what im downloading and a box pops up asking me do i want to run, save or cancel it , i choose save and then i get asked where i want to save it to i select that location and then the download starts showing me the speed of download as it progresses,well i downloaded a couple of programs today and they went just as descirbed and expected , then all the sudden the next download i chose started downloading as soon as i selected it the box i usually get never popped up , gave me no choice where to save , and when download was complete the file appeared opened in a temp folder, can anyone help me get my option to save back, any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks Dave

    Hi, I know this is going to sound obvious> Was one of the programs you downloaded some sort of Manager for downloads? What they can do is control where the downloads are saved to. What were the programs you did download at that time?
