    DAP download equivalent (XP PRO SP2)

    Hi again all,
    pre XP I used DAP. Loved it, idiot proof for...well, idiots - like me:~) But, XP does not seem to like DAP. Can anyone suggest a viable alternative?
    Cheers

    One that is highly rated & recommended by the creator of Spybot-S&D as being free from malware is LeechGet

    I'd suggest that if you are on a broadband connection that you don't really need a d/l manager. Most downloads are fast enough with broadband that it is just as easy to restart from scratch. IMO, it is not worth the clutter of yet another installed program, a chance for another component to break, something else to track for updates & fixes, etc., etc.
