    What is the best download accelerator??

    I have used Gozilla (spyware and rubbish)
    DAP (pretty cool but has banners)
    get right (not bad, spyware??)

    Any ideas as to which is the best for XP???

    i would say...

    FlashGeT. This is the best one for me.

    if u downloads it: for some advantage
    and adaware will kill the spyware :) (do not install any programs flashget tries to install and if there are some simply deinstall them before using adaware)

    why not just use Star Downloader ?
    works just like flashget and all those spyware\ad appz, besides this little app doesent have any spyware and such...

    Thanks guys for the suggestions.

    In the past I have used (cnet) to get stuff and I've always looked at submitted opinions and they all seem to bitch about something, is it worth listening to any of these reviews??

    Only listen if a lot of people agree EVERY program will have something somebody does not like

    Just watch out for stuff with spyware (which is pretty much anything free except star downloader - which I would highly recommend). Otherwise go with GetRight - good program with no spyware or adware but of course you have to pay to register it.

    is one of the most robust. 10x more options then DAP.
