WGET is Windows is *best* used when WGET and depencencies are in the %PATH% and 
the use 
run WGET exither from a script wich indicates the folder in which the retrieved 
files are 
dropped or open a Command Prompt and manually go to the location of where you 
want the 
files dropped.

There is NO reason why a utility such as WGET should be in Program Files since 
it is not a 
formally installed application.
