     This piece of code FORCES the user to save known file types (ie: *.mpg, *.gif, *.jpg, *.htm... you get the idea). Normally these (known file types) are opened in the browser, if you wish to bypass this feature in the browsers and allow the user to save a copy to their local computer without telling them to "right click" on the file and select "save target", this is the way. This code is REAL SIMPLE. I commented EVERY line so you know exacly what purpose it serves. If you have any enhancements to make to it, please let me know I'd love to see them. Please vote good or bad, 'cause I'd like to know.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
