Windows 7: Must "SAVE" first, before I can "Run" when downloading.

Must "SAVE" first, before I can "Run" when downloading.

When downloading I get the msg: "Run or Save" the file at the bottom. Many times when I hit "Run" it does nothing. I must hit "Save" then open Run at the next prompt. This seems to have started lately. I've checked security settings but all seem ok. What am I missing here?

You are using IE? ( internet explorer?)
Becouse otherwise. Dont care to fix it. Download chrome or mozilla firefox
If its not IE then what browser are you using?
