    Whenever I go to www.acronis.com, it wants to download "m2006.css.gz". I run Windows XP and I don't have an uncompress utility; besides, I don't know what this file does. If I cancel the download, the website won't load.

    Have you already tried clearing your browser cache?

    OK, deleted temporary internet files and history; no change. (I'm using IE7)

    Your browser will uncompress.

    I wondered if they have not configured this file properly but anyway I cannot replicate this.

    Thanks, Meriadoc (like your user name, BTW) - it turns out that my downloads manager was the culprit - although this has never happened before - I disabled it and let IE7 uncompress the file...the site loaded this time.
