I often downloaded software from www.simtel.net. Now, they changed their
system which I assume is suppose to be more secure?
I have a Windows 98 computer with Netscape 7.0 browser. When I tried to
download a program.zip ("program.zip" is not the actual name), I downloaded
"download-program.zip.exe" instead!!!!!! At "Start" and "Run", when I
launched "download-program.zip.exe", nothing happened!!!
I have IE 5.5 (I don't use), so I got on line and used that browser.
That browser gave me two options, "Save" or "Run the file at it's current
location" (not exact words), so I clicked on "Run the file at it's ...." and I
still didn't get "program.zip"!!!
Do I need a newer browser to download from simtel.net with their new
Thanks in advance, Brad
Before you type your password, credit card number, etc.,

Left click on the link, then after a few seconds (at the new page) it
should pop up the "run or save" options box.
