I have to download a large file and it is a .iso file I do NOT want to have to burn to disk - rather I want a tool that will load that iso right off the drive so I can run it???  Please help.

There are virtual drives that can be installed to change the iso to a usable format.  Here is one that I have used before on a machine I didn't care about (Not saying I trust it or I don't trust it). http://www.magiciso.com/

I am partial to Daemon tools for mounting an ISO, and WinImage for extracting the contents of ISOs. Both are available free.

Thanks it seems this will work for me - my iso is still downloading but I installed this little tool and it does show a new 'virtual cd' so I think I will be good.
