I have a problem when downloading. If I left click on a link to download say a PDF file the download starts straight away without prompting for a save location and when the download finishes the file download window flicks between onscreen and not being in existence.
If I right click the link and choose save as I don't have this problem.
I am on an win98 machine with Internet explorer 6.

GoZilla can cause these type of problems.

Try doing a repair of IE also.

To ask a silly question, do you have acrobat reader installed ? If you dont this will also cause this, it will download when left clicking on the link without prompting for save location as it opens acrobat reader as a plugin for internet explore, (if acrobat is not installed you will get a blank window) then if you choose to keep the file you can save from within acrobat reader

It shouldnt be a big problem bcos u download those files nyway to the temp folder and they are kept there for a while, it shoudl tell u the location its being saved to even tho u didnt opt to "save to a specific location" and if u have Adobe just run the file from the temp folder instead.
