Not the same IP... not the same registrar... somehow I'm suspicious of this "fix"...

Hmm, okay, looks alright. You understand, though, why it looks questionable...

I will guarantee that the fix is legit. It was Irfan Skiljan, the creator of IrfanView, who sent me the fix link, and I posted it in several places, including the IrfanView Forum already mentioned.

Why did you mention "not the same registrar" and not mention the Registrant of the mentioned website?
It is true, of course, but according to the WHOIS search page: who owns IrfanView.info
the registered owner is Irfan Skiljan

It is the IrfanView.com website not precisely owned by a individual, but by TUCOWS INC.
I think that may have just been a convenience for Irfan to set up his domain server with an established massive download provider.
