IE Downloading To Temp folder without asking?

  [DELETED] 16:35 10 Dec 2003

When downloading i have an option to save or open from current location in IE. I usually save but all of a sudden when ever i download somthing now it decides it will save to the temp folder and open without giving me a chance to correct it...Any ideas?

Try "save target as" then you can specify where you want it saved.hth.

It doesn't give me a chance to click save as, when i go to downlaod something, it starts by itsself, saves to temp directory and opens itself as if i have already clicked 'open from current location'

Thats strange! I take it you have up to date antivirus and something like "adaware" for trojan/worm detection.just been looking over tools,options,advanced,and cannot see anything that would cause this to happen.
