Go to the website's download page at LINK

Can you please post this non-installer ZIP file... perhaps as an ATTACHMENT on this forum? Maybe on some FTP site or other location you have access to for upload, and that from which I can download "safely"?
The web site pointed to by your link is rated "malware" by Sophos A/V (which I run) and I can't get get to it either with Firefox or IE. I know, I can turn off Sophos and overcome the "danger" but if the site is reported negatively I'd rather not take a chance.
As I mentioned in my earlier reply, based on the comments made in this thread and my search for a true Windows 7-compatible installer/product, I have installed the Nexus Font Manager which seems quite powerful, friendly, and worthwhile. But I'd like to at least try this orphan/legacy "The Font Thing" that seems to have so many admirers.
Still looking for some place out there to download the non-installer ZIP version of the product, but which is NOT the "malware reported" site of the author.
