i can't download "OTL" from "geekstogo"..  when i try to download it, it is a txt file, which is 0 (zero) bytes, in size, or at least that is what i am seeing when i try to download the OTL.exe file..

 

when i try to download the OTL.exe file, first my browser prompts me to open the file with "notepad", as though it is a text-file.. then, when i download the file, i have an "OTL.exe.txt" file, which is 0 (zero) bytes, in size..

thanks, spywaredr.. :)

 

the problem is fixed, now..

 

p.s. the "oldtimer.geekstogo.com/OTL.exe" link that you posted works.. that is the correct link for downloading the OTL.exe program..

the problem with the download-button, for downloading OTL.exe, is back..

 

it seems that the download-button is configured to use the wrong link, for downloading OTL.exe..

 

here is a link for the webpage, for downloading OTL.exe:

 

http://www.geekstogo...timers-list-it/

 

you can click the "download" button, there, to test it..

 

as far as i can tell, the problem is not with my computer.. i had no problem with downloading OTL.exe when i entered "hXXp://oldtimer.geekstogo.com/OTL.exe" directly into my browser's address-bar..

 

i am using  the "firefox 24.8.1ESR" browser, with windows xpsp3..

go to the webpage for downloading OTL; click the "download" button for downloading OTL.. "OTL.exe" won't download, at least not on my computer:

The latest version of OTL can be downloaded from http://oldtimer.geekstogo.com/OTL.exe or www.itxassociates.com/OT-Tools/OTL.exe

nevermind.. i found the problem.. my antivirus-program was blocking the file from being downloaded.. after disabling my av-program's realtime-protection, i had no problem with using the "download" button to download "OTL.exe"..

 

as i said, i have no problem with downloading the "OTL.exe" file when i use the direct link, "hXXp://oldtimer.geekstogo.com/OTL.exe", in my browser's address-bar, or when i download the file from "bleepingcomputer", which uses the same "hXXp://oldtimer.geekstogo.com/OTL.exe" link, so it is odd that my av-program blocks it when i click the "download" button on the OTL webpage..

It's working here in IE, Chrome, Firefox and even SeaMonkey:

Oops, looks like I was a bit too slow in hitting Submit.

 

Good to hear you got it figured out. :)
