If you "urgently" need an answer, this is the wrong place. You should call Microsoft's Product Support Services and get interactive support over the phone.

In the meantime, here's the core of a console app that will grab the experts exchange logo from this very website and copy it to C:\MyCopy.GIF on your hard drive.  Obviously, the GIF file is binary.

int _tmain(int argc, TCHAR* argv[], TCHAR* envp[])
{
      int nRetCode = 0;

      // initialize MFC and print and error on failure
      if (!AfxWinInit(::GetModuleHandle(NULL), NULL, ::GetCommandLine(), 0))
      {
            // TODO: change error code to suit your needs
            cerr << _T("Fatal Error: MFC initialization failed") << endl;
            nRetCode = 1;
      }
      else
      {
            CInternetSession sess;

            CHttpConnection* pConnection = NULL;
            CHttpFile* pFile = NULL;

            try
            {
                  pConnection = sess.GetHttpConnection("www.experts-exchange.com");

                  pFile = pConnection->OpenRequest(
                              CHttpConnection::HTTP_VERB_GET, "/images/logoag395x50.gif");
                  pFile->SendRequest();

                  CFile fileOut("C:\\MyCopy.GIF",
                        CFile::modeCreate | CFile::typeBinary | CFile::modeWrite);

                  BYTE sz[1024];
                  UINT nRead;

                  do
                  {
                        nRead = pFile->Read(sz, 1024);
                        fileOut.Write(sz, nRead);
                  }
                  while (nRead > 0);

                  fileOut.Close();
            }
            catch (CInternetException* pEx)
            {
                  char sz[1024];
                  pEx->GetErrorMessage(sz, 1024);
                  cerr << "Internet Error!  ";
                  cerr << sz;
                  cerr << endl;
            }
            catch (CFileException* pEx)
            {
                  char sz[1024];
                  pEx->GetErrorMessage(sz, 1024);
                  cerr << "File Error!  ";
                  cerr << sz;
                  cerr << endl;
            }

            if (pFile != NULL)
                  pFile->Close();
            delete pFile;

            if (pConnection != NULL)
                  pConnection->Close();
            delete pConnection;

      sess.Close();
   }

   return nRetCode;
}
