    I must have a setting somewhere that is doing this to me.

    Every time I download a *.rar file, Stuffit Expander (and every other expander I have tried) immediately and automatically tries to expand it. There seems to be no way to shut off "auto-expand" on any of the expander programs, so I must have mistakenly set up something in the OS that is doing this to me.

    It's really annoying when the expanders try to expand a multi-part file when only the first .rar has downloaded.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Are you using Safari? If so, is this box in Preferences checked?

    Also check Stuffit Preferences:

    No, I use mozilla firefox, and this is an issue with expander software, I believe, not browser software.

    Thanks.
