    No i mean the free site where you can download things like z-zip, paint.net, acrobat etc as a custom installer.

    Although nowhere near as easy to use, you might also want to take a look at:

    Ketarin: Updates installation files to current versions. Easy if FileHippo have the files, can be difficult if not.

    InstallPad: Similar to above (but less user friendly) and you can also set up lists of installs, e.g.: School 1, School 2, Home etc to install with a couple of clicks (the installation, not the setting up!). Says free for personal use, but extols its virtues for Windows Administrators!

    I keep meaning to set up the former to maintain an up to date repository of installers and then the latter to install them with a couple of clicks. One day...

    Pity ninite removed the silent installer switch from the free version. Would consider the pro one but it is waaaaaaaaaaay too expensive.

    Thanks for your links LeMarchand

    Don't suppose you've any idea how to run this for ComboFix download from Bleeping Computer ? It needs to be from the bleeping computer mirror as the other site is blocked through the authority's proxy.

    The problem is that the link expires every ten minutes and a new one is generated for security reasons.

    I've tried following instructions from a Thread on Bleeping Computer with no luck. I've tried to sign up and ask the guy on that thread but their site seems very problematic and once I'm signed in I can't access any pages.

    Any Help is appreciated

    I don't see why Keratin (in particular) couldn't just dump the files in a suitable repository. I've not used wpkg (on my "to try" list) so I may be completely wrong!

    Just checked it .. Doubt it will work with wpkg from startup unless some majour is hacking envolved . Not worth it

    Does WPKG have a feature to monitor a change in a installation package or something similar?

    Because you could then set up WPKG to install the program and have ketarin updating the installation package?? This way when Ketarin ran the update, WPKG would see it and automatically roll out the new software If that makes sense

    Never used WPKG so wouldn't really know

    This PowerShell script will download the latest ComboFix from BleepingComputer's protected link.

    Code:
    $regex = [RegEx]'http.+?\.exe'
    $webpage = (New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString("http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/anti-virus/combofix")
    $url = $regex.Matches($webpage)[0].value
    
    Import-Module BitsTransfer
    Write-Host "Downloading ComboFix from...`n$url"
    Start-BitsTransfer $url .\ComboFix.exe
