I need to get the dialog box back that asks if you want to save or open a
file when you download something from the internet.
I accidentally checked off the box that says to ask all the time, now
whenever I download any files it automatically opens them!
Can somebody PLEASE tell me how to get that dialog box back; where is this
setting? I checked everywhere in Security Settings and I did already check
to enable prompting when downloading files, but it still automatically opens
up any file I am downloading. I really hope someone can help me with this
problem.

Thanks

Launch Internet Explorer and from the Toolbar select:
Tools > Internet Options > Advanced, scroll down to
"Notify when downloads complete", place a check next
to it, then click Apply.
