Problem downloading files from web

When asking to save a file, to computer from the web (WinXP Home SP2) instead of getting Save As I am getting Find as the replacement option or open. Either way then asks me to choose from a list of programes to open. As a example, downloading Java starter does it.

I have reinstalled Internet Explorer v7, ran reg cleaner, full virus scan all ok. Puzzled with this, anyone got a fix.

What are you trying to download?

like Sun Java. Say go to search in google. Sun Java Windows, go to java page click on download the small exe file it asks to "Find" where it should say Save. Think its something to do with file associations but havent a clue which.

Try right clicking instead of left clicking and choose 'Save As'.
