It is a work PC but I spoke to the Admin person and they say no changes have been made and I got all the settings to match mine.

Does it occur for only selected type of files or all files.
e.g.: Does occur only for .zip files or all type of files.
If its the first case, then u must have unchecked the "Always ask before opening this type of file" option, when a download window must have appeared.

Well it was some sort of pop up blocker that was causing it.
