IIS is serving .asp page as a file to download, not running the script

I set up a classic ASP script some time ago on a win2003 box running IIS v6.1. recently there was a server crash, backups were restored and several people have had their hands in the pot. They finally called me back in and I can't tell what they did to screw it up.

When I navigate to the .asp page internet explorer asks me if I want to open or save the file and serves me the raw script code, not executed. I don't know how that is possible, but IIS is serving it as if it ais a download. "ASP" is installed and should execute. I almost expect to see ".asp" listed in allowed MIME types, but it isn't there. what else would cause IIS to serve the the script file without executing it as if it was a download?
