    When i tried to download music or download a video from a site , it automatically streamed instead of the pop up box telling me to save the file. I want to disable the automatic streaming feature. I noticed the link has been changed to automatically stream but when i disable Windows Media Player i can download the file normally. But i dont want to disable it everytime i want to download something. I tried the standard procedure of going to organize then options > network > then disabling all the protocols except the http one
    Then i tried disabling all of them to no effect. It kept on auto streaming instead of allowing me to download.

    Does someone know how to turn this streaming thing off or editing these auto streaming links?

    Thanks in advance.

    P.S Using windows 7 never happened in vista or earlier os

    (the protocols are rtsp/utp etc.)
