There's gotta be some kind of simple app or solution for what I'm trying to do.

In Mac OS X, (and all Linux boxes) there's a shell program called "curl" that lets you download something off the web and store it to a specific location on the hard drive.

Is there anything like this that is already installed on Windows (XP) machines? Or, are there any simple utilities I can easily access with FileMaker to accomplish the same result?

IE. It's installed on all Windows machines and it is entirely scriptable in the background (without showing IE). You can give it a url, get the response and work with it.

You need VBScript to make it work, which is the biggest problem since FMI forgot to include support for it like they did for AppleScript...
