     Downloads any URL to a byte array/string in async mode without using any API's or external components. VB6 NATIVE CODE. I only needed MS Common Controls to add the listview for demonstration, but the control itself doesn't require it at all. You can add more than one URL at the same time for download. - Accepts both HTTP and FTP url's.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
