IE7 download box

  sinbads 21:35 17 Jan 2009

I'm sure there is a box to tick ;but i cant find it.
i have reset IE gone through all the security options /firewall/antivirus and as yet not been able to resolve this one
click here

Generally i save downloads to the desktop ;but sometimes i just open, as you can see from the image this option is now not available.

anyone any ideas

What happens if you click Find? Do you then get an option to open the file?

Rather than being IE7 I think that download box is related to Vista maybe? This is my IE7 download box using XP and there is a button available to Run/Open

click here

this is what i get in xp
not sure if this will work.

Thanks for your reply if i select find then it takes me to a windows file associtions.

Sorry the option missing is run, as is with your image.

Could be i have a file association problem i've run sfc /scannow,don't have a firewall eccept my routers, no addons running.

Your problem is probably spyware suggest you start a thread of your own
