Mass Downloader & AntiLeech websites

I have found a problem with websites that support anti leech scripts.

If I try and download the files I end up with a .zip file that is corrupted when I try and open it. I have tried out literally dozen`s of various downloading programs so far the only program that seems to support this "anti leeching" is "Internet Download Manager". However there are other annoying things I dislike about the program like the lack of an auto exit for the program when your downloads are finished.

I wish I could find a more civil site but this was the best thing I could find on short notice.
http://www.cracks.am **** PLEASE NOTE THIS SITE HAS LAME POP-UPS ****

If you search for any file and attempt to click the download button, Mass Downloader will start the download however it claims to have finished in less than a second and if you try and open the file its corrupted. The files will all download perfectly with just Internet Explorer so I know the files are good.

Anyway I`d appreciate your thoughts on if this is a fixable feature or not

Thanks for you time.

Just change its file extension to HTM and you will see that it is an HTML page.

Yes, it is the only app partnering with AntiLeech site.

Yes, this site returns the HTML page which suggests you to use Internet Explorer to download files from this site.

We are developing the method to download files from such sites.
