How do I set to default my options when I click a file to download?

Whenever I click a file to download (zip, mpg, or any other) it automatically opens the file. I used to get the "OPEN", "SAVE", and "CANCEL" options when I clicked a file to download in IE but I somehow clicked on one of the boxes that it had and now I download the file straight away. I would like to have the options to open or save the file without opening it right away.

I have Windows XP and I been looking where I can reset that option but no such luck. I hope any of you can help me here. Thanks!

I believe it is under

Tools
Internet options
Security
Custom Level

I would either see if changing the settings under downloads helps or reset the settings to medium and see if it fixes it.

or switch to firefox or mozilla

Thanks, but I already fixed it. Had to go to Windows Explorer, Tools, Folder Options, File Types, and click on Advanced to change the settings.
