Always ask before opening this type of file checkbox missing

I have windows 7 64 bit on my computer with internet explorer 8. Whenever I click to download a file (such as zip) I get the typical open / save/ cancel box. I would like to always open the file automatically without the prompt. The one problem however is that I don't get the typical checkbox that says "ask before opening this type of file" Its not grayed out ...its missing. I would like to uncheck it so I can automatically open my zip files. I've searched and nobody else seems to be having this issue.

More about always opening type file checkbox missing
  1. Nobody know this one?
  2. part of the enhanced security in 7, which is a good idea
  3. There has got to be some sort of a work around ...registry changes/ different web browser. Some programmer out there has got to know
  4. I was looking, I am using free download manager, and it has a option to open the file after D/L it, maybe this is the fix for you
  5. Thanks for all the replies... turns out its just Internet explorer 8. Figures they'd make things more difficult over at microsoft. Anyways Google Chrome does exactly what I want it to do. Thanks again.
