Missing Open Button from IE7 "File Download" Dialog

    When I go to a website that has files like .mpeg or .mpg that I want to click
    on and open I click on them and the standard IE7 File Download dialog box
    appears, but I an not given the option to open the file. In fact, the Open
    button is not greyed out or disabled, it is actually missing!

    However, it is obvious where the open button belongs because the Save and
    Cancel buttons are still pushed over to the right where they normally are.

    This is a big problem for me because I publish plain old web pages of links
    to short movies of my little one for the relatives to see. When I show
    people on my computer I don't want to have to save the file to a location,
    open the location and then click on the file after waiting for the whole
    thing to download.

    This is a relatively new install of Vista with relatively few programs
    installed on it. I'm not sure what could have caused IE7 to disable the open
    button, but if anyone can provide some pointers I would be exremely grateful!
