Anyway to ssh to a remote server and save files locally?
What i would like to do, is connect to a remote linux server using putty on windows, and save files from the remote server to the local windows machine. I would normally just do it over ftp, but because the server requires a secure connection, and the windows machine does not have winscp on it, i have to download the files using an ssh client (putty).
Anyone know if this can be done?

I don't know enough about putty to answer. Can putty connect to an sftp subsystem? If so, and if the sftp subsystem is enabled on the remote machine, then yes. If no to either, then no.
P.S. Might be easiest to install a program that can handle scp or sftp if you can.

Actually, you can use PuTTY Secure Copy client (pscp).
You will need to dowload pscp.exe from http://www.putty.nl/download.html
Then, in Windows, start command prompt, and go to directory where you saved pscp.exe
Now, for example, you can copy file from Linux server to Windows this way:
E:\>pscp user@host:/home/user/wget-log E:\wget-log.txt Password: <user password on Linux>
E:\>pscp E:\wget-log.txt user@host:/home/user/wget-log.txt Password: <user password on Linux>
