    when i download certain files, that always appear. well
    yesterday i think i unchecked that box by accident when i
    was trying to cancel the download. now the problem is it
    will not show up and is opening files directly everytime.
    i tried to find the sercurity or what ever option enables
    it. ... well i never found it...

    where is that option? how do i get it back or reset
    it? ... there must be a way right?

    In Windows Explorer (not Internet Explorer) click on
    Tools|Folder Options|File Types
    Scroll to ZIP extension, clock on advanced and put a
    check in the "Confirm Open After Download" option. If
    it wasn't a ZIP file you were downloading at the time
    then click on the extension name of the file type you
    were downloading.
