    Hey,
    I recently had to re-install leopard. And so I am re installing some apps I lost or just new apps in general. I'm using safari and when ever I download a program it downloads as like a blank page icon, it still downloads as a dmg file but its a different icon than before I had to re install leopard. When I click on the downloaded file instead of uncompressing and opening to install, it opens disk utility and then I have to click on it from there for it to install. So basically I am wondering what I did or did not do to make it change to this way. and how can I get it back to normal? normal as in download a file it downloads to the desktop and then I double click on it and it opens and runs the install
    thanks for the help

    It sounds like something got screwed up on the install. I would do an Archive and install and see if that doesn't fix it.
