Everytime I click on a daily download file from the internet, it saves it automatically in the Temp folder and I then having trouble finding it. After it has downloaded, winzip automatically runs and aske me where to extract to.

This must have come about becuase I selected the check box the very first time, and told it what to do the next time I want to download such files.  However it did not give me a choice of where I want to save all future files.

How can I remove this auto save to location feature?

Also, I read a lot of bulletin boards, and with my old netscape everytime that thread was updated, the hyperlink would be blue again.  With IE this is not the case, and despite the fact the thread has been updated and moved to the top of the screen, it has a "visted" colour, i.e purple.  Anyone know how to change this so that it changes back to blue after an update to the thread has been made?

Thx.

It sounds to me you have 2 things set wrong ... one is in winzip turn of your browser support for zip files this will stop the auto download.... if you turn this off you should be prompted every time for a location to save the file .... and make sure you choose save to disk and not open the file.....

To be honest I don't know or cant remember!

All I know is I installed v6.3 of Winzip and chose classic setup.

If you go to winzip through the start button there should be an icon for browser support.....go thru it and check the settings....

I've reformatted my computer since, and have not bothered to try the above, but will remember it next time I need it.
