Clicking on that link, leads you away from facebook...to something entitled "jimscontent.com".....


Personally I wouldnt touch it with a barge pole......I feel it is just begging for infection/malware etc etc etc


I attempted to access it.....but only because I am running Linux.....not Windows.


Either way it is a "dead" link


Can you contact the person posting it ?

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy

The website mentioned appears to be inactive.


What's the point of posting a link...when you are ostensibly asking about a file which you have...bearing no extension?
