    I know some people don't like it, but I really do.
    (for some reason I only get the Microsoft standard downloader now)

    How do I get Download Accelerator to be my default downloader again.....as I want it to be(as it used to be)?

    I see no options to make it so.....am I missing a setting that someone can help me find and reset?

    thanks

    Check the DAP FAQs and DAP Help

    I use Fresh Download. So dont know the exact setting. But you've to check a box in the Options of the program. There should be a check box under the section Connections(I suppose)!
    Check in the above links for integration of the program with browsers and see if that helps!

    thanks again, Pvc

    there was an option to "intigrate" it with my browser that was already checked(or course).

    I unchecked it, restarted and the rechecked it and restarted my computer again.

    that seemed to work.

    thanks
    (why do you like Fresh Download better?)

    Thats great.

    You're very welcome:)

    About FreshDownload, I posted few months back in Security forum about DAP and spyware, so I was suggested few programs by the other members. FreshDownload was one of them. I like the program as it is a simple, small program which works very well for me. Have had no problems at all since!

    I know DAP and have been a SUPER fan of DAP for 2 yrs. But after DAP pulling out the Always Resume option and keeping it only for a few days. I had no option but to move to FreshDownload. My connection speed isnt great so... had to use a download accelerator and FreshDownload kinda rescued me :p

    Have a great day!
