Download Accelerator Plus - SPYWARE???????????????

  JayDay 14:40 25 May 2004

I have been using Download Accelerator Plus for some time (I like the resume facility). I use adaware and it never detects DAP as a problem. I am now using Spybot S&D as well and this identifies DAP as a problem. Is it?

If it is full of spyware can you suggest a similar product that isn't and that has a resume facility?

I've been hearing that Download Accelerator Plus does include some spyware. As an alternative program, you could always use Getright since that never has any spyware (that I know of). Although I havent used Getright in 3 years now due to having a Broadband connection, it may have changed but give it a go as I find that program to be much better. It seems to be better at resuming as well since sometimes with DAP, it loses the connection and sometimes may have to start all over again.

I do not know DAP, but I use fresh download which is good and free click here

I would go with Fresh Download, as TomJerry suggests, or LeechGet 2004 click here. GetRight is excellent too but not freeware.

DAP does have spyware adverts included.

Fresh Download is easily as good as DAP if not better.

I have used them both but prefer Fresh D/load to DAP now.

I am now using FreshDownload. Excellent program and free. Thanks for all your help.
