    Put Mozilla on a USB drive from home, bring the USB drive to school, and plug it into a computer and load Mozilla.

    Yeah just use whatever works. The flash drive sounds like a good idea.

    If for some reason that doesn't work, then just search "Start using CGIproxy" in google exactly how I typed it. Click on every single one until you find a proxy that isn't blocked (you will, it just may take a little bit).

    Then go to the page with the download. Right click and go to download properties. Copy the download link to your clipboard and go back to the cgi proxy page. Paste that and there you go, it works. :smile:

    Most schools block proxy websites, but you can make your own, host it online, and keep it quiet. Then just use that to go to whatever website you want to download it from. That's assuming I'm reading correctly, and they just blocked the web address. If not, then just grab your flash drive like they said. If you don't have one, an iPod or something will do just fine!

    Because using the command prompt to install software on Windows is always easier than buying a flash drive for someone who can't configure and host their own proxy site? Just saying, and no offense to anyone... lex parsimoniae for the win. When answering a question, don't assume that the user knows how to do much of anything on the subject. If they did, why would they be asking questions about it?

    It isn't for me either.

    He just posted another thread trying to get his Project 64 emulator downloaded at school and says the flash drive idea won't work.

    But PAC, if you'll do as I told you then you'll have both of these programs downloaded in no time lol.
