"More spyware."

April 22, 2005  |  By satchick

 |  Version: Free Download Manager 1.45

Pros

Drop the spyware and you might have a useful tool.

Cons

Software bundled with spyware (optional install or not) is junk and not worth the time downloading. Instead of making money by ravaging someone's system with spyware, make the software shareware, not freeware! A much better option!

"The best free Download Manager."

April 17, 2005  |  By EisenSeele

 |  Version: Free Download Manager 1.45

Pros

This download does NOT install adware unless you tell it to. Please dont post a review if you dont know what youre talking about. This download manager makes my dial-up connection about 5% faster, but ive tried many others with adware and they did the same. I mainly need this so my downloads wont be lost, because phone calls cut off my connection.

Cons

There are no cons that i am aware of.

April 14, 2005  |  By pjw

 |  Version: Free Download Manager 1.45

"Try pressing No"

April 04, 2005  |  By whyhoo

 |  Version: Free Download Manager 1.45

Pros

I love this program. It allows me the ease of lining up multiple downloads, and managing the process for me. I especially like the "drop box" feature. This allows you to copy a link location, and then que the download without being forwarded to teh page telling you the download has been transferred to FDM- you simply click on the drop box and press "INS"- your link is automatically inserted- press enter to que it up!

I'm especially confused by all the spyware related reviews. I believe when I installed the software, it asked me if I wanted to install some other application, and I just declined. Why can't anyone else follow a simple prompt?

*******ATTENTION DOWNLOADERS******** I' have something to say, and I want you all top ut this in the pages of free download history: If you don't want to install other apps that are offered when you download a FREE program, follow the prompts, and choose the option that says: "NO".

Cons

I love it

"Pretty Decent Download Manager"

March 31, 2005  |  By Mrsone

 |  Version: Free Download Manager 1.45

Pros

This download manager works well with Internet Explorer, or IE shell. It works quickly, downloading files much faster than when I did not have it. It has good options, such as allowing the user to set default locations to save certain types of file groups. It monitors the browser to see when you click on a download link, and if you do, it pop up some options for you to set before downloading. It automatically adjusts the amount of sections it needs for a particular download. The ability to reconnect and resume broken downloads is a blessing, since in IE, if your download is broken, you are fresh out of luck.

Cons

This program sometimes may not name files well if you select the option for automatic file naming. And sometimes, it may not be able to reconnect some downloads. It should allow an option to let the user scan for viruses on a right-click of a file. Also, the user interface could use an overhaul. Still, it is well worth the try, because it is free.
