Hello,

There are some documents in the share point like .doc or .xls or .docx and .xlsx but they are downloading as .zip.

Windows 7 64-bit, IE8
troubleshooting:
disabled in IE under Security for all zones "Open file based on content, not file extension"

on other website i have found as well to add in registry:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\PROG_ID_OF_MIMEHANDLER_TO_IGNORE\"PreferExecuteOnMismatch"=DWORD:00000001

have you ever faced such issue and know how to fix it?
any solutions are welcome.
I will check them and give reply if working.

Wonder if it's an issue with the MIME types on the server?  http://www.pptfaq.com/FAQ00911_Office_files_don-t_download_correctly_from_a_Web_Server-_saved_as_zip_files_instead.htm has some easy-to-understand info.

this is good info.
after contacting share point self the advised to apply one fix:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_MIME_HANDLING]
"iexplore.exe"=dword:00000000
