    I think it's a browser setting. If ie8 then tools/internet options/advanced/reset internet explorer settings. I'll comment again if I find better answer

    Ok I know what your saying and I've fixed it before being a uploader myself but I forgot right now dude. I do, however, remember it has something to do with the default for which client to open torrent with. Again I'll keep trying to remember. Check your pm dude

    security settings are default.in xp you could revert back and bring back open/save option for downloads but it seems windows 7 you cannot unless someone knows a reg tweek perhaps?

    Did you try in IE?

    TOOLS>SECURITY
    Click CUSTOM LEVEL then tick the box for AUTOMATIC PROMPTING FOR FILE DOWNLOADS

    Use BitComet.

    what has BitComet got to do with it you still need to associate from within whatever client you use.
