I need to automate a process for logging into a website, navigating to a particular page and then requesting a download so that a CSV file is downloaded.

I then plan to move this to another location.

Is the some sort of key-logging,macro software I can use or add to Internet Explorer?

There is also wget (http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/), available for most operating systems, even that toy one from bill.

Wrap it in a batch script, schedule it with 'at' and roberts your mothers brother.

Waits for the web pages to load. Sweet.
