"Be careful before you install this"

June 13, 2005  |  By Amnon

 |  Version: Internet Download Accelerator 4.1.2

Pros

Yes, it is a nice and functional program - it's a good download manager... but keep in mind that plenty of other programs do the same thing.

Cons

I am using Firefox, and the program integrated just fine with it... But that integration just refused to leave, even after I uninstalled IDA! Now every time I try to download something, or see certain types of banners the program somehow identifies as downloadable material, I am redirected to their website - a real shame.

So I'm gonna go to my blacklist right now and mail all the people I don't like to install this so they won't be able to get rid of it later.

"Really bad sotfware!"

June 06, 2005  |  By spurspower

 |  Version: Internet Download Accelerator 4.1.2

Pros

Slightly faster than the download manager integrated in Firefow, but not much!

Cons

Tried to install cool websearch on my computer as well. Luckily Microsoft AntiSpyware prevented it from getting installed. As mentioned before the uninstaller is a joke, I can't download anything now because it couldn't remove the integration dll. Anybody who knows how to remove the dll???

"THIS PRODUCT IS MAJOR BS. IT HAS COOLWWW SPYWARE ON IT."

May 24, 2005  |  By Ingenious

 |  Version: Internet Download Accelerator 4.1.2

Cons

I haven't tried it because of the spyware on this damn thing! I'm sure its bad. I used Both Microsoft Antispyware (beta), ScanSpyware, and Spybot S$D to make sure i removed all of the stuff (Adaware doesn't get anything but trcking cookies for me). I know from experience how powerful Coolwww spyware is.

"A-"

May 18, 2005  |  By CJDeak

 |  Version: Internet Download Accelerator 4.1.2

Pros

Great, good speed. I usually get between 128-256K/s while I'm browsing the web, from LinuxISO.org, which I used to test this product against a few others. With IDA, however, even while watching as streaming video I got between 333K/s and sometimes, when I left it alone, 1028k/S

Cons

This program crashed often, and I had to give a three-fingered salute (ctrl+alt+del) every few minutes on one or two download sites.
