    "I'd Say that it is fine."

    February 17, 2014  |   By Not-My-Problem

    Version: iLivid Download Manager 2.3.0.1672

    Pros

    Does play videos.
    Supports torrents.
    Supports video ripping from video websites. (E.G. Youtube, Facebook, etc)
    Nice user interface.

    Cons

    If you are not careful, you will install malware and adware internet browser helper objects with it by forgetting to uncheck them in the installer.
    Basically useless and a space-waster, since you can use various video ripping websites (E.G. videoripper.me) to download videos. Also, the watch video while downloading feature is annoying and pointless, because the video constantly buffers as the video is downloading. Torrenting is fine, I guess, but there are better and smaller torrent clients.

    Summary

    I would be rating higher if it wasn't annoyingly bundled with other software, including CNET's.

    "A Efficient Virus, I hate Viruses"

    December 23, 2013  |   By haroldhodges

    Version: iLivid Download Manager 2.3.0.1672

    Pros

    1. hijacks your computer, and your browser.
    2. steels your personal info.
    3. takes dirty photos of you on the comode and in the shower.
    4. steels your panties.

    Cons

    does not do anything you want it to.
    fails at every job you want it to do, and the reasons you downloaded it to do.
    knocked up your sister, mom, and dog.

    Summary

    a terrible program that failed, knocked up your relatives, got you fired, melted down your computer, ran away with your spouse... you will hate this program.

    "WARNING: This product is connected to Searchnu!"

    December 4, 2013  |   By TheRobertsFamily3

    Version: iLivid Download Manager 2.3.0.1672

    Pros

    OK, let me think... 999999999999999999999999999999999999 eons later: I'm still thinking...

    Cons

    "This product is connected to Searchnu..."
    I don't need anymore crap. Searchnu is all I have to hear in order to reject something.

    Summary

    It hijacks your homepage to Searchnu, and maybe even Conduit Search!

    "Trash; Malicious Software"

    November 28, 2013  |   By Randome_User

    Version: iLivid Download Manager 2.3.0.1672

    Pros

    None at all whatsoever.

    Cons

    -Malware that hijacks your browser.
    -Records your activity and sells it to third parties. (E.G. Intelius)
    -Hard to uninstall.
    -Should be dubbed "Useless Download Manager" but the publisher didn't have the honesty to.

    Summary

    Trashiest software ever. Scan with your antivirus if you suspect you have it and remove it completely. Here are your stats to prove that you should remove it...

    "Glad I checked cNet to confirm my suspicions."

    November 16, 2013  |   By 56JagMan

    Version: iLivid Download Manager 2.3.0.1672

    Pros

    It almost downloaded a video that I had not been able to download with DownLoadHelper.

    Cons

    So many things have already been stated in other reviews here that match my experience.

    Summary

    I now understand what happened to my PC after reading the reviews here at cNet, most particularly the reference to "...computer would run really slowly and eventually it started shutting off on its own and then it would go to start-up repair or blue screen. My computer wasn't even usable...", except that my computer was out of warranty.

    I lost so much information because of what iLivid did to my computer, a lot of it I don't think will ever be recovered.

    If you are thinking about downloading iLivid I would suggest you get a hammer, hit yourself on the back of the head with it, wait until the lump goes down and repeat three times before doing so!

    P.S. I have only given this piece of crap a 1 star rating because the system would not let me give it a 1/2 star rating (i.e. abysmal).

    "Fraud site"

    October 4, 2013  |   By yaakov1

    Version: iLivid Download Manager 2.3.0.1672

    Pros

    Don't know.....

    Cons

    This is a fraud site.
    They use Googles symbol to try impersonate people into thinking that they are legit.
    I got the following message from them with Googles symbol next to it:

    "It is recommended that you update your download manager to the fastest version available.
    Please upgrade with iLivid to continue.
    Please upgrade to continue."

    See here, (hopefully this will be removed soon, as I'm reporting it to google)

    Version: iLivid Download Manager 2.3.0.1672

    Pros

    Great idea; guess cons are smart pros.

    Cons

    I think most of those who created this programme were cons.
