thanks for your valuable information
but theres now this problem, i see that i can download an internet file with the program , but i cant find any instruction that lets you open a webpage
by the way, does this type of prog have a special name, or category?
(like software for manage software??)

"Automation Utilities" could be a suitable category.

You could search for AutoIt on google and possibly find AutoIt among other similar programs.

You could execute explorer with the webpage as an argument.
For example
explorer "http://www.cnn.com"

If what you are ultimately after are images on webpages, you might find that writing a script in say perl or python is more efficient. You could parse a webpage for the URLs to the images you want, then retrieve them via the program or else through some external program like lynx or maybe wget.
These programs are available from Cygwin (the unix-like distribution that runs in Windows).

You can always write this sort of program easily using VBScript, but then that all depends on your programming ability.
