i changed it to 744, 777, 750, 755, and 7x5. none of these helped.
go to my programs, and click to download something, what does it do? im not sure if it only happens when my IP downloads, or if it goes for everyone. it keeps poping up this box asking for my FTP username and password. i dont like that, i cant be handing out my password or username to everyone. how do i fix this? i tried 777, thinking that that would help, but it didnt, still asked for my info.

You're alternative is to put those download files in the public_html (root) directory.

i don't want to do that unless i have to, i just want to make sure i got it right.
I'm going to do what you said, about making it anonymous, but as a backup i want to know what else i can do.
if i got confused than please tell me, thanks for the help =)
(and this is not related, but in this post did i use correct grammar? im trying to enrol in geekU, and i need correct grammar.)

I am just suggesting the Anonymous FTP folder. You don't have to use that unless you want to. If you put all your programs in their own folder and change the paths to reflect the corrections on your web page, you should be fine.
The FTP section is just for that purpose...for people to access your files using FTP. There is one you control with a password and one that is public.

The Control Panel has everything you need to manage your site. My host uses VDeck, but the most common, I think, is cPanel.

ok go to www.kitkin15.tk, go to: "downloads, browsers" than click to download "avant browser" does it ask for a password? yes
now go to www.kitkin15.webege.com, try to download the same thing....does it let you? YES. do that means dot.tk is messing with things. it dont make sense to me, how can i stop this from happening? im going to go to dot.tk now and check out the control settings, but if you know anything i dont, than please.
i was going to just change the programs link on www.kitkin15.tk to this: http://kitkin15.webe...wnload home.php. but i cant do that, whatever i do to one, happends to the other, dot.tk only redirects the website, it isnt a whole different site its self, so am i screwed?

<a href="ftp://firstname.lastname@example.org/public_html/programs/browsers/absetup(browser).exe">Avant browser</a>
That is a totally incorrect link. A relative path would just be:
<a href="programs/browsers/absetup(browser).exe">Avant browser</a>
A full path is:
<a href="http://www.kitkin15.webege.com/programs/browsers/absetup(browser).exe">Avant Browser</a>
You would be better off zipping those executables. Or use...

it's come to our attention that you've got a lot of things on your website as of now that you're probably not allowed to host directly. Most of the apps that you're hosting are actually controlled apps (even if they are free) and their creators have expressed rules that forbid private hosting of their files. You should be linking to the creator's website instead of hosting the files. You can ask permission from the creators of the applications for permission to host their files, but most will probably deny your request. I doubt you're intentionally trying to host things without permission but you need to know that doing so can have adverse effects on you. The owners of these applications can take legal action resulting in anything from shutting your site down to putting you in jail
here's a quick list of things that i KNOW you shouldn't be hosting directly:
IE7: Microsoft does not allow for ANYONE to host their files elsewhere, for any reason. Even if you had asked permission to host this file, they would have denied it. If you would like to direct people to use IE7 then you need to LINK to the official MS IE7 download page (http://www.microsoft...t-explorer/ie7/)
MalwareBytes: Both the free trial and the portable app. i know for a FACT that they DO NOT allow anyone to host their installers. because of the sensitive nature of their application they cannot afford for there to be "unapproved" hosting locations. they're reputation is actually at stake with this one. IF by some chance of fate you're hosting a compromised version, then people will think that it's their fault and not yours.
Kapersky: same as above
Spywareblaster: more of the same
HJT: ESPECIALLY now that this is owned by TrendMicro. TrendMicro does not allow for ANY of their software to be hosted elsewhere. FOR ANY REASON. Even if you ask for permission. If you're hosting an older version of HJT (from before Trend bought it) then i know that the creator would not be happy with you hosting their files
this is just a partial list based on what you've got hosted now. i'm pretty sure that the rest of the apps you're hosting fall under the same category. you really need to think about what you're doing, just because a program is free to use, doesn't mean the creator wants their files hosted elsewhere. MOST free apps are supported by the ad revenue generated by people going to THEIR site to download the file, if you host the file elsewhere, then the creator doesn't get any ad revenue from their application. which has the effect of making it difficult for the creator to offer support or make updates to their programs.
