Editors' Review

The name might not be the most creative, but the Internet Download Manager does exactly what it promises: helps you download and organize files. The best part is that you can schedule downloads and use filters to get the specific files you want.

The compact interface is packed with options, but the main features are easily accessed from a toolbar at the top. We would have liked to see a bit more user guidance up front, but a tutorial does cover the basics, and there is a more detailed Help file if you get stuck. You can also go the easier route with the program's integrated Web browser options, which work with nearly all of the most popular browsers, including Internet Explorer and Firefox. Each time the program recognizes a video in FLV format on a site like YouTube, you'll see a button, and it's one click and you're off and running. From the main interface, all you have to do is add the URL for a video to get started. A new window shows you the status and allows you to pause the recording and set up a few options for what to do with the file once the download completes. As advertised, the speed was good and we didn't have any issues with test files we downloaded, which included MP3s, FLVs, and MPEGs. Our favorite feature was the scheduler, which was easy to set up and lets you choose where and when the program will download files. We especially liked the fact that if you lose your Internet connection, the program will resume downloading your selected or scheduled files once everything's up and running again.

The download and installation of IDM was easy and fast, and it uninstalled cleanly. If you're looking for a program that you can basically set and forget to video downloads, this is a good option.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Internet Download Manager 6.12 build 15.

"if you don't pay to IDM, Trojan in IDM will be released"

April 11, 2012  |  By spicegal9

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 6.10 build 2

Pros

ran fast like all other free programs at the beginning.

Cons

PC data are sent back to IDM without knowledge. I verified this by looking at the "sent out" large data during the time without using any other programs.

Summary

My new HP i7 intel PC slowed down immediately after trial date!

Uninstalling cause errors in the hard drive. Had to reformat and install everything again!

"No uninstaller- files spread out over Hard Drive"

March 26, 2012  |  By LizetteDM

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 6.10 build 2

Pros

It does what it claims.

Cons

It has no uninstaller and files are spread out over your hard disk. The main executable disappears after your trial and can only be found by doing a search. If the author wanted us to remove the software why hide it after it's trail time was over?

I have yet to figure out how to uninstall all bits of this software. Don't know if it is harmful but it sure is suspect.

Summary

Not sure how it got the rating from cnet, but it is not user friendly when it comes to uninstall. Maybe something to worry about.
