    Before I posted a thread on by passing the school security system to install Trillian or MSN Messenger, the thread was called 'School Restrictions'.

    I found out that I cannot download files with the extension, .exe !

    Does anybody know where I can download Trillian or Messenger as a zip file from ???

    If I could do that, then I wouldn't of needed to change the extension.

    I can't even download it, by getting it to the Save To screen !!!

    Is it really necessary you install a chatting program? You can't wait until you get home?

    Why don't you just d/l it at home, zip it up, and host it on a website somewhere?

    Download trillian or messenger at home.
    Zip the program and upload it to the web. Something like yahoo briefcase and when you're at school download it from there as a zip.

    Or easier put the program on a floppy and install it. :)

    Our system @ school blocks the following extensions from being downloaded from the net: .exe .zip .mp3 all i do, is find the file i want, download it at home, and change the extension to something else that can be downloaded, for instance .doc or .txt, then all I have to do is upload it to some webspace, and I can download it at school (remembering to right-click and choose Save target as..) in explorer, and I can download it, and use the msdos rename command to re-set the extension. it works :D
