    Hi f1_champ,

    I assume you are using a dial-up account.

    Before utilizing a download accelerator, it is wise to use a good Download Manager which is one that will be able to resume a connection for a variable preset number of tries (by the user) to reconnect if the connection is dropped during the download.

    A good one is: FreeDownloadManager downloaded from http://www.freedownloadmanager.org download link.

    That said, most downloads are not accelerated as the ftp protocol is utilized which is not accelerated by accelerators. The only downloads that are accelerated afaik is when a webpage is being downloaded.

    BTW, Googling is a good way to find stuff, no exception for accelerators - and does not bombard the user with spyware.
