Download Manager

Question: Download Manager

What would you recommend is the best download manager? How do you download from peer sharing programs with this? I don't know what I would put into the site address box they ask for.

Relevance 100%
Preferred Solution: Download Manager

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Download Manager

I don't use peer sharing programs, but I do use FreshDownload from:click hereIt's does exactly what it says on the tin, has no adware etc and will Resume downloads (if a website supports it) when necessary.First used FreshDownload with dial-up many years ago and it's just as effective with broadband.

Hi guys, I've searched for this but couldn't find the solution. The problem is that after a few minutes...like 20 or so. The download on my Windows 7 stops working...Take a look at the picture.
It says connecting and the lights on the modem start blinking as if it is downloading but it doesn't. I can still browse websites but can't download even in Opera, Mozilla or IE. I've been using Spybot and KIS [Kaspersky Internet Security] for 4 years now, so I don't think there is a problem of virus or malware. Please help!

I've been using IDM (6.25 build 3 most recently) happily for quite some time. For Christmas I purchased an online class which streams (?) from a .com website. I paid $128 for the class which remains online. Although I can view it anytime, I'd like to have it on my hard drive so I can put it on my laptop and watch it in bed instead of sitting at my desktop computer. Also I've purchased classes in the past and the website went out of business and *poof* my purchased classes went with them!!

When I use IDM to download the .flv file and play it back using Windows media player, I only get audio...no video.

Can anyone suggest:
-- what's going wrong?
-- a solution
-- another program I can use?

Thanks for the assist!
LuniLadi
 

Answer:Internet Download Manager Plays Only Audio For .flv Download

IDM is currently at 6.25 build 12. IDM only downloads files it doesn't play them. That's the job of your media player. An alternate media player you might try is VLC available at Major Geeks.

Hi Guys,
I recently downloaded bbc iplayer, when I click on it, it - rightly says I have no programmes to watch.

I click through the "download programmes" button which brings me to the iplayer home page - so far so good.

I select (for example) TV, John Bishops Britain, then select download options, for iplayer desktop-"click" and ....drumroll, nothing, nyada, zilch!!

I de installed and reinstalled thinking perhaps there was a corrupt file somewhere, this made no difference.

I then selected download for windows media player and got this message;

Software upgrade required
To download BBC iPlayer programmes please upgrade your version of Windows Media Player. Click here to get the latest version from Microsoft.

So far as I can see for my OS (XP pro) wmp11 IS the latest version available and the one I'm using.

It's really quite frustrating, I have had no luck on the support site or, so far by trawling through the net looking for answers. Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks in anticipation and best regards,
Brian.

Answer:BBC Iplayer download manager - wont download!!!

Instead of downloading it through the desktop program download them on line they should go strait to your Iplayer desktop
go to http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/
go to the required show
scroll under the video
click "download options"
then "for iplayer desktop"

A free download manager designed to integrate seamlessly with Windows 7 is now available from Microsoft. Dubbed the Microsoft Download Manager, the utility is designed, as the label implies, to help users administer their downloads beyond the boundaries of the browser. More often than not, downloading very large files can be problematic, especially in the context of an unreliable connection. It is precisely in scenarios like these that a download manager will carry out any download tasks to the end, unlike browsers missing this functionality.

?The Microsoft Download Manager enables you to download files from the Internet in a more reliable and faster way than using a browser alone. Using the Download Manager makes it easier to download large files such as an application or multimedia files,? Microsoft explained.

According to the Redmond company, the Microsoft Download Manager comes to the table with support not only for Windows 7, but also for Windows Vista and Windows XP SP2 and SP3. Microsoft Download Manager was designed to work with Internet Explorer 8, IE7 and IE6 but also with Firefox 3 and Firefox 2.

Just looking for recommendations on these two kinds off apps.
Download manager-I've used Flashget in the past. It's OK so I could go back to it. I'm just wondering if there are any others that are worth looking at and why.
Wallpaper manager-I've noticed that many of the wallpaper managers strictly work with photos from the hard drive. I'd be interested in something similar to Google Screensaver that pulls wallpaper from the web, even from news stories. It looks like there was a Google Wallpaper for a while but it closed. I used Eyetide several years ago but they became a spyware trojan so I guess that's the other thing. Spyware free, please. It's too bad. It used to be a good product. I noticed one called Cool Wallpaper but I dunno.

Hi all:

From the MS Store.
I bought a FULL VERSION Vista Home Premium DVD actual disc not the downloaded version.
With the right to a FULL VERSION Win 7 when it releases on Oct 22nd.

I am thinking of getting it by downloading it from MS.

My question is really Simple.

How do I burn the iso to disk after Downloading it with the Download Manager to make it Bootable as if I got the actual disk?

A friend of mine said he downloaded his his was Vista without the Download Manager and there were (3)- Separate files and couldn't figure out how to make it a bootable disk so he returned it for the actual media.

NOW if I download my Win 7 Full Version disk to my Drive using the download manager, WILL IT be a single iso file so that I can burn it as a bootable disk?

And if it is suppose to be 3- separate files then how do I go about combining them to make it bootable?

I'd hate to choose the download option and not be able to make use of it, Only to have to pay FULL Price for an actual copy.

When I could just get my Free Copy for the price of Shipping and of coarse tax.

Any advice or Links I'd be most Grateful......

Answer:How do I burn iso after download using download Manager

It should be a single ISO file.

How to burn an ISO image to disc..

Its simple really, download this, save it somewhere.

When its done downloading, go to the location you saved it, and extract the .zip file.

After that, open the folder it created and run 'IsoBurner'

Click on this;
Attachment 29934

Then locate the .iso file and select it.

Then burn it, you should also set the speed to the lowest possible to ensure their are no problems burning.

Sorry if its not that clear, I'm half awake about to go to sleep.

What do you think is the best download manager and why?

TIA
 

Answer:Best download manager

Free Download Manager (freedownloadmanager.org). I've used it for quite a while. When I first found it it was the only one that I could find that was actually free and useful. Probably different now, but I dont really have a reason to switch other than just curiousity.

It's loaded with alot of features. I like the bandwidth controls and how it can organize your files.

Only one problem I have is on my Vista Desktop. It doesnt like IE8 very much, IE8 crashes when you attempt to close it. But works fine on my Vista Laptop with IE8.

It's open source, high traffic user forum are just a couple of other good reasons to trust and use it.

I'm open to alternatives though, so am looking forward to other opinions.

I was using Real Downloader, (not great, but it worked for me) but I recently formatted my drive and lost it, now I can't find it online to download.

Don't need anything fancy. Something free or very cheap, NOT loaded with spyware, want to be able to pause the downloads and resume later. Something that can handle a bunch of downloads (or at least put them in queue) at a time if necessary.

Oh and if you are downloading multiple files with the same name, I'd like it to create a new name for the second file instead of having to type one in myself.

Question: Download Manager??

I recently downloaded and installed one of those free download managers.

I had been using one called "WellGet", but it stopped working for some reason, and the author no longer has a web site.

I know a lot of those things have spyware, adware, and malware. I had been using WellGet for several years, and had no indication of any infections from it, or that it even contained any of those things itself.

I have a primitive archaic dial up, which is why I have even considered and used a download manager. The capability to resume downloads is critical when you've been downloading something for hours and then it disconnects. My virus defs are approaching 40MB now, and the daily updates I do, manually by the way, just about require the ability to resume if there is a disconnect. There is nothing quite as bothersome as having a large download interrupted and then having to start all over again.

I would switch to broadband and be done with the whole issue, but I live in a rural area and broadband is just not that reliable. I've considered satellite, but that seems like it would be just as much hassle as dial up.

In any case, I Googled on download managers, and came across a link for reviews by that Spybot S&D guy. He recommended "LeechGet" and "Download Express" as spware and adware free, but I tried them and was not very satisfied with their GUI

So, I am currently trying "Free Download Manager" (FDM). I use McAfee SiteAdvisor... Read more

Answer:Download Manager??

Hi BobJam,

Stick with FDM, you won't get a better download manager - it's versatile, can resume downloads, and you can even tweak the number of download connections into which your download is split to do concurrent downloading on parts of a single file. Two thumbs up as the best download tool - only on Windows, however afaik.

Answer:What download manager can do this?

Reget Deluxe

First select all the files you want to download. Then start the download process. You will want to use the schedule option after that i.e. start one download then estimiate how long it will take to download that file and schedule the next download to start after the estimated time and repete. It will continue downloading all the files at the scheduled times. It will resume a broken download (disconnects and etc). It's a great program but it's shareware.

Question: download manager

I am running windows XP (up to date)on a toshiba laptop. Two days ago,about 5 minutes after I boot up, the download manager starts(have no idea what it is downloading)and then my computer freezes for about a minute, then everything runs normal.Today,after the freeze,everytime I end a program I get an Internet Manager blank page.
I'm stymied. Do you think I have a virus(AVG and Spybot cant find it if I do).What would you recommend that I do?
Thanks

I have used GetRight for a while and liked how it can connect multiple times to a server and really increase the download speed, but I can never figure out how to schedule downloads or get things to download one after another.

I also used Flashget for a bit, but got sick of the ad's.

Basically, I am after a download manager that allows mulitple connections to the server, allows for scheduled downloads and will allow me to set things to download one after another.

Suggestions?

Question: Download Manager

I presently use Stardownloader with FlashGot as an addon in Firefox. I've been pretty happy with it but not particularly happy with the way it acts on some sites, particularly when I try to download financial data from a bank site.
I realize that some of these programs are loaded with spyware, so I guess I am just wondering if anybody has a favorite they like.
Preferably it'll be a free program.
Thanks

Question: Download Manager

I recently gave up my Direcway satellite broadband and returned to dial-up . My Dial-up ISP has an accelerator program (Propel) that works pretty good for browsing but is useless for downloads. I get about 2.7kbps. A simple definitions update from AVG takes almost 45 minutes for a 5Mb file. I looked on www.download.com and found quite a number of utilities after searching on "Download Manager". Among them were Kazaa and a couple of other names I've seen associated with spyware.

So I'm looking for a recommendation on the best free download manager and also whether there are any gotchas associated with download managers in general.

I'm running Win98SE with a MyIE2 browser on a P2 Dell desktop. Any and all thoughts appreciated.

I've bought the Student 32-bit version of Win7. I received a confirmation email with my order number and Key.
Successfully downloaded both the .exe file and the ISO file. I don't want to run the ISO file if I can possibly avoid it BUT the .exe file doesn't run. The Digital River download manager opens, and then says that I need to be connected to the Internet for it to run...when i AM connected! So I don't even get as far as putting the key code in.
Found the Customer service button, which asked for Oder no or email address + last 5 digits of credit card details - it regognises neither of these. I'm pretty sure I bought it directly from the Microsoft website, so perhaps the exe. file is corrupted? Still doesn't explain why it doesn't recognise my order
Any ideas?
I've also tried rebooting but makes no difference

Question: Download Manager

I need a good download manager (preferably free but I'll buy if worth it). I unfortunately have to use HughesNet which limits me to 450MB of data per day. However they don't limit usage from 11pm-4am. Problem is I'm at work in those hours and I have files to download that are up to 4GB. Is there a good download manager that will allow me to set a time for multiple downloads and have them start automatically in that 11-4 window?

And sorry if this a repeat thread but the others I found were a couple of years old so I thought there might be something new out there. Thanks!
 

Answer:Download Manager

You may want to check the Internet Tools section of the download pages. This will probably have a few tools that may or may not meet your requirements.

I've used Free Download Manager in the past and liked it, but it has been so long that I can't recall if it has the scheduling capabilities that you require. (Although, with the proper research of the command-line interface, you may be able to get it to work with Windows inbuilt scheduler)

This is a two-part question that breaks down into the categories of freeware and software you have to pay for. In specific, I'm looking for informed users of download managers.About 3 years ago, I tried asking the Wikipedia editors of the comparative table of download managers to update it (because it's woefully incomplete) and the short answer was "Do it yourself." The long answer was a bit better, but the excuse given for why most DMs weren't listed at all was because they only list DMs that have a page on Wikipedia. When I searched Wikipedia and posted a list of all the DMs on Wikipedia that were NOT in the table, that's when I got blown off. Not being an expert on the topic (although I've tried a few from the very LONG list that are available) of DMs and audio/video DMs, I wisely declined.So, here I am, looking to BC members to see if I can get a good idea of which DMs are top of the heap.Please keep in mind a few points:I dumped Download Accelerator Plus because of the adware and some other issues.I am dumping Free Download Manager because it doesn't allow me to pause my downloads.I had problems with Go!Zilla when I tried using it.I've used LeechGet and JDownloader, but formed no opinion yet.I'm also dumping FlashGet 3.7 because there is no way to completely disable P2P connections with it, and also because it's trying to get me to install the Simplified Chinese Language Pack when I haven't visited any sites that ...

Answer:How to get rid of Download Manager?

the downloads box thing is part of firefox so you can't get rid of it.

however what you can do is go to the firefox extensions website and get Download Statusbar

instead of bringing up the downloads box it brings up a small bar at the bottom of the screen that hardly intude at all (plus there's a 'mini mode' which sends it to the status bar as an icon)

i use it myself and it's realy good plus it tells you more about the file bieng downloaded etc
