What about normal users with "MSIE 5.00"

It's a serious question and has nothing to do with spam.
I give as much information as possible so you can see it's true.
I really appreciate a solution. I already tried Options -Indexes, but that doesn't work.

When you have index.html (or default.html or index.htm ...) in each (sub-)directory, then a 404 error redirection in .htaccess, the listing of files doesn't show and the user can only download the files he knows about.

Sorry about that. I posted the link only for completeness, so that you can try it yourself.
I have a html file in each directory.
With a "normal" brower you are right, but FlashGet "Site Explorer" shows a directory listing even when there's an index.html (or what ever) in that directory.
Only password protected directories are not accessible (not hidden!)

If a client cannot be effectively blocked by IP address or by user-agent, then it can often be blocked behaviourally. Two useful scripts have been posted here, one of which uses a honeypot approach, and the other which uses a rate-of-requests detection approach. I would think that either of them would be able to stop this client. See [webmasterworld.com...] message #9.
