No option to open / save files when downloading

Hi All

Problem with IE.

All of a sudden i cannot download any files, when i click on any download link, it immediately goes onto the download part with the no options to save or open and the open and open folder tabs greyed out. Then it doesnt even download but hangs where it is with no progress for hours.

Can anyone help please.

win2k pro sp4, ie6 sp1. 512k ram

happened last month, running another computer with same spec with no problems.

i personaly do not run win2k.

Did you run a spyware/virus scan? If no spyware or virus are present.

Believe win2k has the following to try.Try repairing Internet Explorer.

Control Panel>Add/Remove Software.

Double click IE and select the repair option.

Will see how you respond,others may pick up on post.
