    I've been switching around a lot from my PB to my MB lately. I notice on the PB when I download a .dmg in safari. When it's done it auto mounts, puts the .app on my desktop and then auto un-mouts.

    Just happened now with http://knoxformac.com/download/ and yesterday when I installed quicksilver.

    On my MB this doesn't happen. Both have the pref checked in Safari to open safe files after downloading. Is there something else that would make this happen? and can you please check the link above to see what happens for you?

    Note that having that option enabled opens security holes that can allow malicious code to be executed on your system.

    My macs have never done this and quite frankly, would scare the frack out of me!

    You sure you don't have a helper app installed that's doing this for you on your PB?
