Internet Explorer automatically opening zip files?

Having that annoying problem with IE automatically opening zip files instead of saving them?  Follow these steps to correct this behavior:

Open Windows Explorer.
Go to Tools | Folder Options | File Types.
Scroll down to ZIP and select it.
Click Restore to restore the default settings.
This sets the file type zip back to “Confirm open after download” which you can find in the advanced settings.
