    Hi all,
    I've been looking around for a nice sturdy download manager so I can resume any biggies. However, Go!Zilla was my first choice and not suprinsingly the first to be rejected. I've looked at some others including Download Accelerater Pro but found there's just too much Spy-ware, Ad-ware packaged with them and/or they don't work properly. Does anyone know of a good one?
