First of all, welcome to LQ
Second, don't hijack someone elses thread, but please start your own one. It's confusing for the original topic starter, for you and for those who reply as no-one knows who is replying to who.

As far as I know windows explorer does not support the ftp protocol and therefor you need an ftp client on the Windows machine. Windows comes standard with commandline ftp client and you can download and install clients like FileZilla etc.
