Editors' review

Don't let the dull name fool you: Internet Download Manager is a full-featured package that handles downloading tasks with aplomb. It conveniently integrates into your browser, even if you use Mozilla or Opera.

It automatically sorts incoming files by file type and puts them in the appropriate folder. Most importantly, it supercharges download speeds (it doubled ours). Its windowed interface is clean and easy to understand. Power users can take advantage of the command line interface to resume file transfers, schedule downloads, connect through dial-up, or log on to password-protected sites. Experienced users also can limit the number of connections, the download speeds for specific sites, and even create an exception list to block specific, user-defined sites.

Other features include automatic virus checking and the ability to download all files linked to a page. The new version has a Web spider that can analyze a site and retrieve, for example, all the images on it.

Internet Download Manager strikes us as a natural choice for users in need of a trusty transfer tool. Version 5.11 build 5 added FLV grabber that can be used to download videos from YouTube, Google Video, MySpaceTV, and other popular sites.

    "Can't uninstall"

    September 14, 2014   |   By gtitus09

    Version: Internet Download Manager 6.21 build 10

    Pros

    Downloads faster than my browser

    Cons

    Can't uninstall it.

    Summary

    It seemed to work faster than my browser's downloader but I cannot seem to uninstall it. The window comes up to uninstall but the progress indicator just sits there for longer than a minute before I finally give up. That shouldn't be. Nothing is being removed it just sits there.
