Use the Microsoft Internet Transfer Control (INET) to get the file... The help pages on this control are very good.

To add the control to your project, right-click on the toolbox and select "Components..." then select "Microsoft Internet Transfer Control" from the list.

Make sure you have service pack 3 installed... It fixes bugs with the control.  You can get SP3 here:
