windows has an ftp program that will work transferring files between linux and windows. However, this is unsecure and not recommended. There are a few ways of doing this; sftp, scp are two of them. They tunnel through encrypted ssh so they are MORE secure than ftp. WinSCP is a good gui client for windows. Putty also offers psftp for windows.

Why do you feel the need to start a new thread when you already asked this a few days ago without every following up:
