Yes, it is.

MP3-downloading passed ok.

Now, if you change the value data from "1" to "0" it's possible the .mp3 file will open the default music player rather than give you the "save as" dialog so it can be downloaded without playing.

Here is a web link directly to a .zip file (a driver for my PC):
http://shup.com/oqo/OQO%20Drivers/02....6.0.82bin.zip

When I left click on it I get the same "save as" dialog as we get for .mp3 files. Do you?

Yes, I get downloading dialog too. But with registry mergence I had to reinstall 7Zip yet.
Now when I change value in "AlwaysPromptWhenDownload", it approves correctly.

Many thanks.
