    What data/files is that you are trying to "get", ie. just one or perhaps a handful of files on a regular basis, or are you creating a mirror of a site?

    You could always try URL2File if you are just looking to grab a few files from the web:

    Look for the link to the standalone .exe:

    Manual setup and manual uninstall.

    Yes, I know it's old, but it works and leaves no registry trace on the host computer.
