How can you download a file from download.com's site without having to use their installer. I want to just download the file or files directly....

1. Try the Direct Download Link if offered.
2. See if the author/title has a web site for it and get it directly.

I'm guessing you meant the CNET installer and not the app's own package and installer.

That is correct Bob. The CNET installer. I just don't like it. I wish it was the way it use to be, just a direct download.
