Hi, How do I change the download manager that i have installed from Download booster to Freshdownload. Everytime I try download IE opts for Dowload Booster - which I don't want to use.

Cant say i've used download booster but check in the options menu or something like that.

Look for "integrate with IE" (or something similiar) Uncheck the box, close IE, now reopen IE and try downloading again.

Check for disable options in download booster or just unistall it.

In FreshDownload go to Options/Integration tab and check the box to integrate with IE then select which integration method you want from the two available. If you are unsure try both and see which works best with your set-up.

I would suggest that, if you have FreshDownload, you might as well uninstall any other download managers you have. They will not be needed.

Foolsbane_1 is quite right. Presumably Download Manager is set as the default.

You can also right click on the download you want to acquire and select Use FD to Download.

Also on the integration tab check that "Check Default Download Manager" is checked. Next time you use FD it wil prompt you to make FD to default (if its not)

Thanks for the help.....FD has now asked to be made the default.
