Windows 7: How To Automatically Download File From Website?

How To Automatically Download File From Website?


I've just made the jump back from Mac to PC . I used to use Mac's automater to download an e- version of my free to distribute daily newspaper, start my mail program, attach the file to an email and send it to my Kindle. It was all quite easy to set up.

I'm looking for a way of doing this in Windows 7 but so far I'm not getting many hits on Google. Task Scheduler doesn't seem quite as flexible. Could anyone help me with how I do this?

Thanks for the reply but could you elaborate. I've had a mac for the last ten years, I don't understand how you install wget as the download doesn't seem to contain a .exe, or how to integrate it with task scheduler.
