daily download tasks – wget for windows

Sometimes If you have to get software frequently new it’s good to automatize the procerede.

In my case my collegues wanna get every day stuff like ComboFix directly in to a workspace folder. (ComboFix AV tool – after a couple of days Β it says it’s to old and you have to download a fresh, new version)

Download wget for windows and put it where ever you want it.

write a cmd with

del x:\Antivirus\Combofix\combofix*.exe

c:\winwget\wget\wget.exe “http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe” -P “x:\Antivirus\Combofix” -c
ren x:\Antivirensoftware\Combofix\ComboFix.exe combofix.%date%.exe

 

and set a daily task with the task scheduler …

First row deletes the old version and the second will download the new version.
This is a pretty simple way without special permissions at the download source but you’ll figure it out if you have to. πŸ˜‰
