    Now I know what your thinking, Download managers are not all they are cracked up to be but I have discovered one that really does what it says on the tin. It's called 'Get Right' heres an example of how it speeded up a recent download.

    If you have seen the thread about Knoppix 3.2, you will know that a few other people have downloaded it (~SimonV~) and it took him 3 or 4 hours for a 693 MB file, I have a 1 Meg connection and it took me about the same due to bandwidth restrictions on the Mirror site, I downloaded it again just to get an idea of how good Get Right is and It only took 1 and a half to 2 hours, nearly twice as quick, my first download sat quite comfortably at around 60Kbs however while using Get Right i was hitting 120 to 130 Kbs constant.

    What it appears to do is open 2 channels to the download site and get max bandwidth on both, thus increasing download speeds, on some sites you can open up to 16 channels.....WOW, it will obviously still only be as fast as your connection allows and on all downloads it automatically searchs for aditional mirror sites and connects to them.

    Some of you might think that this is old news, but to me it's my new toy

    :D :D :D :D

    I've used other download managers in the past to help with lost connections as most of them can resume a broken download. Never used getright but I've used NetPumper and Gozilla. Useful tools. :drummer

    Was a while back since I've used Gozilla, I moved onto NetPumper because Gozilla was corrupting the downloads when it resumed. Anyone ever used Adaware for removing spyware etc http://www.lavasoftusa.com/ found that a useful tool in the past.

    Used to use adaware but I was told of a better spyware detector called Spybot-Search & Destroy. I have been using it for a couple of months and no problems.

    I have Adaware scheduled to run on start-up. Sure, you gotta wait an extra 2-3 min, but there's hardly a day goes by when it doesn't pick up at least one Data Miner.

    If you customise it to scan only your profile, it really doesn't take long (as opposed to a full scan), and I think the benefits are woth it.

    Another download manager I use which hasn't been mentioned is Flashget, great little proggy, the free version has advertising along the top I don't know about spyware though. It starts up 5 Streams which keeps it clipping along at a good rate.
