"Speeds downloads up a lot, and is freeware"

December 31, 2007  |  By cobba1

 |  Version: Free Download Manager 2.5 build 737

Pros

It's free. Downloads speed up remarkably

Cons

When a download popup appears I like to type in the comment box the name of the app that I'm downloading. When I click on the web browser window to view the name, I am unable to unless I first close the download manager popup window

"Ok for a free program"

December 26, 2007  |  By jemima.peter

 |  Version: Free Download Manager 2.5 build 737

Pros

It installed easily, didn't do any damage to my computer, which is always good. It did what it was supposed to.

Cons

I thought the interface was very cluttered and unnecessarily complicated. I have since installed another program which does the same job more efficiently.

"Very good Download Manager"

December 24, 2007  |  By BMENON

 |  Version: Free Download Manager 2.5 build 737

Pros

This is a very good Download Manager,integrating with all browsers, and I've been using it as my default download-tool for a long time.It is dependable too and this new Vn.2.5.737 gives all the features as shown in cnet.download.com--description of publisher.

Cons

While installing this Vn.2.5.737, my Windows One-Care(antivirus) captured a Trojan and quarantined it.The name is:-fumoei.exe>Trojan:Win32/AgentBypass.I checked this in prevx.com, see what it says"Your PC may be infected. The presence of a file called FUMOEI.EXE is a possible sign of infection."

Cnet.download.com and/or Free Download Manager may verify this.

"MALWARE - WARNING!!!! - MALWARE"

December 24, 2007  |  By amhouston

 |  Version: Free Download Manager 2.5 build 737

Pros

What is to like? The moment it finished installing, windows began to open selling various products.

Cons

It should be a criminal offense to infect people's computer with malware. After I removed the program from my computer, I continue to get windows opening selling what appear to be imaginary products (Who would BUY screensavers??). I suspect that if anyone "clicks" on the links in the ads, they will simply download more ad-ware and malware.

I am VERY unhappy that CNETallows these criminals the use of CNET to infect computers. CNET claims it inspects software to be "virus" free. Having windows popping open selling me products that I don't want (from vendors that really don't exist) is as bad or worse as any virus.
