Go and download a file.

Remove the tick from "Close this dialouge box when downoad completes".

when you download a file there should be a checkbox on the dialogue box saying "close when download completes"... try unchecking it.

In the bottom left hand corner is a small box, next time you download something take the small tick out of the box then it will stop on (the tick in the box is to close the box when the download is finished).

just a reminder to tick it off when resolved, it helps so people don't look any further when a problem is already resolved, thereby increasing the hit-rate on unresolved probs.
