If you are not getting prompted to "Confirm download" so you can direct the download then the switch must be reset.
First you need to define which file types this problem is with, RE: Mpg, Jpeg, Bmp Etc. and then

1- Open Windows Explorer and go to Tools\Folder Options\File Types
2- Scroll down to the file type and highlight it
3- Click Edit or Advanced, depending on your bersion of windows
4- Place check the box for "Confirm open after download" then click OK

Hope that helps

Dave
