    hi all

    since i found the link for star downloader here i have been using that as my download accelerator and have been happy with it not the best but it does its job and its crud-ware free and free to use so I'm happy until now

    because i am having no end of trouble with it because it just refuses to connect to the files that i try to download now i don't think its got anything to do with za coz it wont connect even if i got za switched off so does anyone know wtf is going on

    coz if i cant find out whats causing this and fix it it means ill have to rely on the windows download and that got no save date option which means if I'm downloading and i get cut off like happened to me tonight i have to start all over again and that a pain the the butt especially when its a big file so does anyone know whats going on either that or another free crud-ware free download accelerator

    any help would be appreciated

    can't help, but to point to www.metaproducts.com for download express (IE only I think) Free and without ads, spyware or any other troubles. I do recommend this. Just trust me I guess :)

    I have used StarDownldr for a long time. Make sure you have the most recent version as there was a version or two that sucked. I am using V1.22 and it rips. Uninstall it and reinstall newer version. There is "check for newer version" and low and behold a V1.24 is available...

    I've had 15 simultaneous downloads going all at break neck speed while continuing to surf.

    Poor Nod32 got a workout of workouts during that run but held up as the true champ it is.....version 1 too.
