tar file to save as

Hi All,

We have a user that gets a .tar file from cisco.  The file is from a link which is embeded in an email.  When you click the link, it launches IE to open and normally you would get the prompt to open file or save as.  The user is now unable to get the option to save the tar file, it'll just auto open the file in win zip.

I have a feeling its and IE issue.  I've tried deleting all the cookies and temp files but to no avail.  Please help.

Unit is running Win XP Pro, using IE8, Outlook 07

I'm just looking to get Explorer to prompt me prior to opening the file in zip.  It use to do it but I'm not getting the prompt now.
