WinRar - WinZip Download problem

    When I try to download a file with a RAR or ZIP extension, WinRar or
    WinZip opens the file rather than downloading. There seems to be no
    way to download the file with IE7 without extracting the files with
    WinZip or WinRar.
    Anyone know of a fix which allows downloading RAR and ZIP files and
    still maintain the RAR and ZIP extension association for local
    files?
    Thanks!

  2. Open Windows Explorer and go to Tools | Folder Options | File Types.
    Scroll down to the file type in question and select it.
    Click Advanced.
    Check the box for "Confirm open after download".
