Open the Folder Options (Tools menu in Windows Explorer windows) dialog and click the File Types tab. Scroll down to the file extension you want to change, and click the Advanced button. Check the 'Confirm open after download' box and it should ask you what you want to do with the files instead of just opening them after you do this.

I find download managers more efficient, but thanks for the tip in case if I happened to use IE 6 (very rarely) to do a bit of downloading.
