I can’t get the game – when I click on the "Get It!" button at abandonia.com, explorer can’t display the webpage. Is the site not available any more, or is it a problem of my computer?

I followed the instructions and didn't have any problems until I tried to open the game. It says C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\Desktop\zip\NEWFOL~2\SAM1.PIF

Invalid program file name, please check your pif file.
