Just watch out for some of them, they are riddled with spyware!

- - - seldom, if ever, do as they claim.

It would be better trying to get adjustments made to the gain on your telephone line if your Internet service is not what it should be.

It is not possible to accelerate downloads to anything faster than your telephone service and your ISP is capable of.

-pops- absolutely agree but the Resume feature can be very handy on occasion.

Agreed, MG.

In those circumstances, I wouldn't think it matters which program was used, provided it was spyware-free.

We must stop agreeing like this<;-)))

Another recomendation for download express

I believe Download Express downloads the next section while your computer is busy installing the last section it downloaded so it must be somewhat quicker. Also, I've never been troubled by spyware when using it.
As you can gather, I like it and think it's OK.
