    hi,

    Now i will tell u why i want to hide that window, i used 2 download video files of 120MB & above from a vidcast site [educational videos], as i am having a dial-up at my office, i used 2 download these videos from the net cafe, normally most videos will take more than 1 hr 2 download, i dont want 2 sit infront of the pc that much time , so normally i save video by " save target as " then i choose the sharing folder of the cafe, then i leave the cafe & come back may b after 3 hrs , now as i saved in the sharing folder , even if i didnt get the same pc , i can copy it to my pen drive from the sharing folder, latter on i can copy from pendrive to my office pc,

    But the problem is while the video is getting downloaded , the download status window is shown, so other ppl using the system may cancel the download, then i wont get that in the sharing folder, thats y i want to hide that window.

    Note:
    *cafe is having Deep Freez software, so i cant use any 3rd part software 2 hide the window.

    * Dont want to use any download managers

    *i am having a 2GB pendrive , so any suguestion with that is welcome [eg:
    any portable software like that

    * videos i download range from a siz of 95MB - 125MB , all are in wmv format.

    Looking forward to hear from you all

    I dont think that is allowed in cafes. If you want to download a huge file, you will have to pay for the full time it takes to download the file.

    The best approach may be to take the cafe man into confidence and get the password for Deepfreeze. Then install powermenu and hide the download window. But generally cafe owners are reluctant to allow too much downloading because their bandwidth may be used up fast or they may have to pay for it.

    thanx 4 that link, i am already having firefox & opera [portable] in the "pendrive", but the problem is i dont wanna keep the pendrive in the system during download as my physical presence is not there during the downloading time.

    @Ramakrishnan
    i think i dont need the password of "Deep freez", coz i can download powermenu [as u suguessted] "Deep freez" acts only when the sytem restarts, here in the cafe usually no one restarts the pc, but i am not familar with powermenu, ok now i will find the link to download thru google, is the powermenu free 2 use ? is it possible 4 u 2 post the link 4 "powermenu"

    Also if you download some stuff in a Cyber cafe & take it to Office to may infect the
    PCs in the Office!!! The Cyber cafes are mostly infected with many viruses.
    So it's better not to download your stuff there.
