download problems

It used to be we could use a browser and download things from and lynx even worked.  That's not the case any longer.  
All that happens now is you get 10 redirects and get thrown off the page.  
What does work though, is to copy the url from what would 
be where the file was going to be pulled from and drop back to the local 
box and run wget -b and paste the url in.  Apparently wget is able to get 
these files and the bonus is the file names aren't mutilated as they are 
when a browser is used to download them from

Microsoft, windows is accessible. why do blind people need screen readers?
