Hope someone can help with this oddity! When I try to download something, it goes to the correct address, but the QuickTime "Q" is displayed on the screen for the entire download time. When "download" is complete, the "Q" turns to a depiction of a movie film frame that has a discontinunity. It's almost like its treating every download as a video program! I removed the QuickTime program. Now when I download, it says QuickTime is needed!!! What is going on!!?

Right click on the downloaded file and select open with than scroll down to explorer or winzip or even notepad to see if that has any affect. I don't use Quicktime so I don't know what file associations it uses. I know Realplayer uses .RM and winzip uses .EXE or .ZIP.

Did you download a "download manager" from Quicktime? Real Player has a download manager for example. This program takes over the Windows download screen and manages where you file things with some even promising faster downloads. I have never seen any benifit to these download managers as Windows does a good enough job there.(Geez, did I just compliment Microsoft?) I don't use Quicktime so I don 't know if this applies to your situation..just an idea to explore.
