    Pros

    "horrible--unstable and FULL OF MALWARE"

    March 29, 2014  |   By ccwhart

    Version: Download Accelerator Plus 10.0.5.9

    Pros

    It COULD be a fantastic program I would be happy to pay money for if it weren't so unstable and so aggressive and sneaky about trying to infect your computer with malware.

    Cons

    Installing this program is like walking through a minefield of sneaky, clever traps designed to trick you into installing malware. If the program at least worked, it might be worth it, but I found it very unstable. It was almost impossible to download anything because for no apparent reason, the download would abort. You might think that because I was still logged in to the site I was downloading from, it would resume automatically or at least with the click of a button (there is a Resume button), but NO, instead I am asked again, and again, and again, and again for the username and password of the site that is already open--and it STILL will not resume the download. The window asking for the username and password WILL NOT go away. Even killing it with the task manager didn't work. Several times it froze my computer and I had to hit the power button. And even if the download does resume, it resumes from the start--even if it's 99% complete, you still have to start from the beginning!

    Summary

    Stay away. Too bad they didn't put the effort it must have taken to create all the sneaky malware tricks into creating a stable, usable, malware-free program instead. I'd pay money for that. Instead, I don't even want this piece of you-know-what for free.

    "Virus, maleware... you name it!"

    March 16, 2014  |   By Jeremyja

    Version: Download Accelerator Plus 10.0.5.9

    Pros

    You can learn some life lessons with it. For example, it teaches you how greedy people can be.

    Cons

    It deleted all my Google Chrome extensions and preferences and Chrome started to crash constantly. I can't open Firefox after installing this software, too. What should I do??

    Comodo said it's maleware, but I ignored it! I wasn't able to install it until I checked box to use them as homepage and default search engine. So, it's not an option - it's a must!

    But I don't even care about that right now, because loosing everything in Chrome and not being able to even open Firefox (where, I can only assume, all settings and extensions are removed too) is a much bigger problem.

    I am not computer newbie, rather tech savvy. Download Accelerator Plus is the worst maleware I ever came across in my 10+ years experience. It is underestimation to call this software adware, it is much worse than that! I can't believe that this piece of junk is not only listed on CNET, but even has a very positive rating from CNET editors.

    Summary

    All I want is to fix problems that DAP caused, so if someone had similar problems and was able to solve them I would appreciate the help.
