Default Not very knowledgable with computers. Need Wget help.

I need help with Wget so I would be able to download a site I want that is going to end in a little over a week from now. I got windows Wget from here: http://xoomer.alice.it/hherold/

I don't know how to start it or use it. The problem is whenever I try to activate Wget, the black screen comes up and closes instantanously. How do I start it?

I think I know what to put in, so no problem with that I believe.

wget -p -k -r --wait 3 -l 0 -erobots=off -nc Site.

Default Re: Not very knowledgable with computers. Need Wget help.

you have to start wget from the command prompt.

the reason the black window starts and disapears is because it hasn't been passed any parameters.

start a command prompt and go to the directory where wget is located. then type the command that you put above.
