    Are there any freeware or shareware programs that can REALLY accelerate a download from the internet?

    Something that does not expose you to spyware...

    I tried Download Accelerator and it does not do much.

    I have a dial up connection and my ISP is stuck on 28,800. I have a 56k modem.

    Any help appreciated...

    Have you checked to see that your modem has all the latest drivers?........look up the modems web site and download the latest drivers.
