Auto Downloads in IE - how do I turn that off?

For some strange reason, (must have been about 3 in the morning when I did it) I unchecked the "Always ask before opening this type of file" on the download dialog box when downloading zip files. Now I have a healthy supply of zip files in my temporary internet files folder. How would I go about resetting that? Since I would like some control on where I shove nasty zip files.

Thanks...

Oh, and im running Win XP Pro, with SP1

Open Windows Explorer (not IE), go to Tools > Folder Options > File Types, search for ZIP extension, point at it, click advanced, give a tick to Confirm open after download.
