"Thankyou very much !"

August 01, 2005  |  By anna menchik

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 4.05 build 3

Pros

works good during trials. i managed to download several files from this site with it.

Cons

forced me to format and reinstall windows after trials ran out and it asked me to register. when the service person finally showed up, he asked me how could i even consider putting it in my PC. finally it's gone forever after about 2 days of hell.

"Work in various connection type"

July 31, 2005  |  By jmanggah

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 4.05 build 3

Pros

I had upgraded into the full version. The registration process was easy, the software developer will posting the URL to your e-mail where you can follow the link to download the full version. The IDM work fine for various type of connections. I installed the IDM into my desktop at office and also at home. I used the proxy T1/1Mb intranet connection at office and 512Kb broadband at home. I also used the IDM with dial-up 56kb connection when my 512kb broadband was down last week. It worked fine with all the connections.

The IDM can be integrated into IE & you can instruct the IDM to download from any link. The integration with Mozilla firefox v.1.06 was not fully automated. However it is still possible to download by copying the URL into IDM under the "add new URL" before proceed with the download.

The full version also support multi-languages such as English, Arabic, Chech, Germans, Spanish, Japanese, Italian, Francis and Dutch.

Support service excellent, which is good for installing the latest patch.

Cons

Speed is rather "so...so..." & not very much to proud of.

Please be reminded that the above experience was encountered with full version IDM only.

"More sinister than spyware"

July 26, 2005  |  By JakeYourdon

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 4.05 build 3

Pros

Same as most free download managers when it comes to multipart/resume downloads.

I have been using LeechGet 2004 till now but as soon as I installed the newer 2005 version, it stopped working ...*sigh*

I am currently evaluating all download managers to pick one that is safe and does what it says, so cannot recommend anything as of now, sorry.

Cons

This program installs a LSP ( a service provider over your current TCP/IP stack) located in a DLL named idmmbc.dll. What it does is monitor all your internet traffic and when you exceed your trial period, cause system instability to outright broken internet access ( when you uninstall it, it breaks the LSP chain irreversibly). If you don't believe me, use a system explorer( say Microsoft Anti-spyware or Autorun from sysinternals) and take a look.

You ask me what happens when you try to remove the spyware? well this is what happens( After running idmmbc.dll through an hex editor):

"idmvers IDMBI Software\DownloadManager\ Internet Download Manager detected that its registry keys had been damaged since the last run. It's possible that you run a flaky spyware remover program which corrupted system registry. Internet Download Manager will try to restore all damaged data, but some data may remain corrupted. Reading of idmvers in idmmbc failed, process = %s, res1 = %ld, res2 = %ld"

Download at maximum risk to your system !!!

"Good, but poor on some sites"

July 08, 2005  |  By markhorneyuk

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 4.05 build 3

Pros

Using a normal internet download didn't really help giving me the full download speed I needed from my 2MB Broadband, so I downloaded this and it gave me a download from 150kb per a second to 250KB per a second.

Cons

However, it does not work on some download sites, such as this one, I tried a numberous times to download files from download.com, it eventually downloaded, but it took about 5 minutes to reconize the file to download.
