hi when i left click on a downloadlink to try to download a file (any file on any website f.e. a game demo or any msn version) i cant choose where to save it anymore. It just goes automatically to temporary internetfiles. The same happens when i use "save as" when right click on the downloadlink... So all my downloads go to temporary map and i cant do anything about it... does someone know how to get the "save as" dialogue box back? OS is win xp... greetz

Check for the option under -->Tools --> Internet Options ---> Advanced Tab.

Scroll through the list, and look for an option such as.

"Automatically save to Temporary folder."

"Enable Save As Dialog"

"Select where to Save Files"

"Ask for Save to Conformation."

Or Something like that. Change the setting.

[edit] Alternatively use Mozilla FireFox The Superior Web Browser. Or Opera Simply the Best Intenet Experience!

Safer and more secure than IE6[/edit]

Instead of muckig about in IE i strongly suggest firefox, it is far superior in every way to IE. if not, then im agraid i dont know what to suggest.

They may very well not exist, I don't even have IE6, so I'm not what was added since the debu of WindowsXP.

What I was saying was that IE6 may set the left-click download option to default to Temporary Internet Files for security reasons, after the latest critical patch that is.

The other possiblility is that your Anti-Virus is causing trouble.
