    I have not installed the actual program and run it, but the installer package comes up clean with NOD32, ewido, Ad-Aware, and Spybot S & D.

    I also went and scanned the installer package at both Jotti's and VirusTotal and both of these found nothing. But as I said before, I have not actually installed and run the program, just scanned the installer package various ways.

    This question litreally has been ground to death here as well as in FDM forum and the answer is NO, it never was a spyware, it never will be one, just a full featured and functioning download manager which has been on my system for the last two years.

    I've been using it for 6 months on 3 machines I regularly use, and it does'nt contain anything like spyware, bundleware or even adverts.
