I prefer to place it anywhere else, instead of dirtying system folders :)

I would make a folder like C:\Progs, and put them there.
Then I would add that folder to the PATH (Right click on computer,
Administrate, and in some tab you have a button to change environment
variables. You add your folder to that list, separated from the previous
folders with a semicolon).
That way, when I download I can keep all of them in that same folder,
and I know that its contents are only managed by me.

Mike, it's not a problem having multiple folders listed there. Simply,
some program you installed added itself there.

Also, just wget http://example.com/whatever.html  downloads that
webpage. -r is just one of the many flags you can use to get different
behaviors (wget --help lists them).
