First things first. I'm really tired to load all skin. So I combine it in One.
Believe or not it's better this way.
I collect all the code and rebuild for own use, It's belongs to It's owner.

The thing is MAKE IT BATTER...
Removed link to site with malicious pop ups

Maybe try a file sharing service that doesn't suck?

I meant to say, I can't download the file you linked to, the screenshot I provided gives a reason why: misleading advertisements to download other software. Using a site like ZippyShare or Solidfiles would be much less problematic. My screenshot was provided by postimg

Not sure. That .rar file should be ok. Try .zip instead of .rar and see how that goes.

You can upload a file up to 5 megabytes in size. Larger than that, you will have to host it somewhere (NOT 4Shared) and provide a link to it here.

In general what I recommend for making files available to folks here is:

If the file is small (under 5meg) and an image or a .rmskin (Rainmeter skin package) or .zip then just attach it to a post here.

If the file is a larger .rmskin, I would recommend creating a submission on deviantART, and just post a link to the submission here.

If the file is a larger .zip or other format file, then just host it on your DropBox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, or other personal file sharing capability, and post a link to it here. Since we are talking about transitory files that only need to be available until your problem is solved, it won't matter if you delete it later to save space in your "cloud" storage.

While you can use public file sharing sites, and there are many, be aware that if you using something that is annoying (Upload.net) or rapaciously commercialized (4Shared.com, MediaFile.com) I may just delete the link and ask you to use another method. I'm not having links on our site sending folks places that cause problems for them if I can help it. I don't mind sites that have advertising, they have to feed their children too. However sites that have really annoying popup ads or misleading links that try to trick users into installing crappy memory compression or antivirus malware or anything else harmful to our user's experience won't be allowed.

I won't catch everything, but any external link to a file that isn't DropBox or OneDrive or something else trustworthy is going to get my attention. Everyone has access to personal cloud storage, and there is no reason not to use that for getting a .rmskin or .zip file to users here. Skin files are generally not that big.
