    does anyone know if there is decent download manager that supports file download resume etc. that does NOT contain any Adware or Spyware.

    I was using Download Accelerator Plus, but this is full of spyware even the full registered copy.

    There are lots of them out there:

    Star Downloader, FreshDownload, FlashGet, GetRight ... check out the websites and see which one you like :)

    I use FreshDownload myself, and it doesn't have any spyware or ad-banners.

    Getright has adware until you register.

    FlashGet imho is the best but it has adware until you register.

    LeechGet is good. Very slick looking and will resume and pause but they don't have a scheduled downloading feature and they don't have maximum download tasks at a time feature.

    Thanks.

    Have downloaded Stardownloader and it seems to be pretty good, also as you say it has no adware or spyware.
