I'm having a problem downloading files from the internet. When I click on the file I want to download I get the download dialog box asking me if I want to save or run the file. If I select the run option all I get is another identical dialog box. If I select the save it will save it to the location I select but when I try to open the file I get the download dialog box again. Can anybody help me on this?? Marv

It all depends on what type of file you are trying to download from which server. Some servers are configured in such a way as to opt for save the file and not run it from the server.
