At work, I have WinXP on my tabletPC with IE6.

When I try downloading a 'tgz' file it shows it as a 'tar' file in the save file dialog window, no option for a 'tgz' file.

Have tried to find a way to either get WinXP to stop changing file types or get it to have option to save download as 'tgz' file, but so far no go....

Anybody know how to deal with this???

This is driving me nuts...not to mention screwing up downloads that I want to use to update my Z..... wink.gif

I used to just delete the incorrect extension and type in the correct one...it seemed to work. Kind of a pain, but it got the files downloaded correctly.
