archive manager help


I'm using ubuntu and everytime I've downloaded something the archive manager has opened, allowing me to download a file or extract a file. I haven't downlaoded anything in a few days and when I tried downloading a torrent today it asks for an application to open the file. I can't find archive manager in any of my folders but I know it's installed because I looked it up in the software center. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Is it asking you to choose an application to open the file with? If there is more than one applicable application, a default can be set. Have you downloaded torrents before? If not, have you installed a torrent downloader?

It is asking me, but there are no options. I haven't downloaded any torrents since using linux, but Transmission is loaded, just not in the options when I try to download a torrent.
