hi guys,

thnx for ur input.. if i suppress this using @sign, @curl_exec($ch)..
this will not show that error, my concern was, looking at my sample code
-- the only complete download im getting is the first one (zip file)...
the 2nd
(zip) and 3rd (exe) were not downloaded completely coz i can't open it.
But if i use cURL in downloading one link -- it gives me no problem. But
for these, i have 3 site links in my text file.. U guys r still great,
tnx for ur help.
