"Worst piece of Software I've ever installed in my Life"
Version: Internet Download Manager 6.26 build 3
None to be found.
Tonec's internet download manager is by FAR and AWAY THE Most expensive download manager in existence today. And, That is for just ONE licence. God Help you if you have more than one device in your home.
They cheat and Steal other people's technology. There is not a single thing that Internet Download Manager utilizes in its software that they didn't lift from the Original copyright holder. NOTHING unique. In fact, you can find it ALL in Free programs.
What we think is worse by far is the fact that it is Continually "dialing home" without permission. Often, several times a day. It has no Permission to do this, without the equipment owner's consent. It does this Regardless of if you have the free or the Paid edition. They have specific backdoors they have inserted into your computer so that they can do certain updates, without your permission, but mostly to make sure you aren't trying to use it on more than 1 device. This is particularly Shady. You CANNOT turn it off. Also Hijacks
Worst piece of Garbage software ever created.And, Good Luck getting this thing Uninstalled after it leaves remnants all over in your Registry. I'm Really surprised the Antivirus companies don't catch this as a Virus.
