Windows 7: File stays on "Opening when complete" after finishing D/L

26 Nov 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home 64Bit
File stays on "Opening when complete" after finishing D/L


Not sure when this happend, but all of a sudden files I download form the web (using Chrome) take much longer to save to disk. The download itself has not been affected, but the file stays on "Opening when complete" status for around 30 seconds instead of immediately opening.
I attached the screenshot.

Can anyone suggest what is causing this?
