    "Speedbit = Malware"

    July 3, 2012  |   By acpiper

    Pros

    Download Accelerator I have used in one form or another for years - GREAT program, one I'm happy to pay for.

    Cons

    DAP is a legitimate program wrapped in a malware package. If you want just the accelerator you have to install the Speedbit junk, which will replace itself as your default search engine, regardless of your selections on installation.

    Summary

    DAP is not the only fish in the sea - many download accelerators are available, many are free, just as effective, & without the malware headache. I guess it's time for me to listen to myself and stopping sending these guys money, but I always hope that the next version is the clean version. Never happens.
