    What's the story on WAT fix download? All it does is boot you over to some "download manager" to install on my system with the usual toolbars/home page change gabage like all the others or it tries to sidetrack me to download PDF Creator. I am rather surprised that a website as respected as MDL would stoop to have that lowball stuff. Does anyone know where the actual, true download button is?

    You've clicked "Use our download manager and get recommended downloads" on datafilehost. On the loader page I give a warning about that, but I guess I forgot on the WAT Fix page. I'll update the post. Sorry.

    The website never used to have the feature and it's one many BIOS modders use too. Personally I use adblock so I see no adverts on that website, but try to find file hosts that don't instantly delete the loader or WAT fix. mediafire, multiupload (and all linking sites), rghost etc. They're all useless.

    Thanks, Daz, I didn't mean to come-off as irate. After reading my post, it reads a bit stronger than I intended. I guess I was frustrated or something. I had clicked every button on the page and they all booted me over to alternate downloads.
