Is there a way to have a virtual file in Windows XP that points to a file on the web? (without shortcut)

Is there a program, or some way to have a file on the web, appear as a local file for the programs to use? Example: an image file on the web, show up as a read-only file in the Explorer, where I can open it with a program directly, without it being in my hard drive all the time, but on the web, but the programs and the system not being aware that it isn't a real file, since when trying to 'open' it, the file would be downloaded, and served to the program that tries to open it.

You can also mount an FTP site or Web site. In this case, if the website supports WebDAV, you can also open the file for writing.
