    Title says it all. I'm looking for a download manager for large non-Kazaa-retrieved downloads (LOL - If there is such a thing), so I'm wondering if anyone can recommend any.

    Before you start recommending any though - If you're recommending any of the following DON'T EVEN BOTHER POSTING THEM. Simple fact - These, while being in the more popular side of this type of software, are notorious for either having spyware and/or adware in them, and/or do sod all of a job - If I wanted software that did those I'd go back to KMD!
    • GetRight
    • GoZilla
    • NetSonic (Has 35 different types of ad/spyware - Recommend this one and I'll know you're a noob&#33
    • Download Accelerator

    One that I knew was good for a while was the one that was bundled with ZipMagic (I think it was DownloadMagic) - That was alright but it kinda screwed up my downloads when I was on a 56k dial-up years ago. I'm just wondering if anyone else has any other good managers.

    Naturally, it doesn't matter whether it's free or is needed to be registered

    I haven't found the perfect D/L manager for me yet.
    Tried several. This is the one I like best until now: Download Mage

    I recommend Star Downloader. Automatic resumption of broken downloads. Downloads may be scheduled with automatic dial-up and disconnection. An integrated unzipper will auto unzip and install downloaded files. Will integrate your anti-virus software to auto-scan downloaded files. FTP, HTTP, and Proxy supported. Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP. Free. 1.34MB I like Star Downloader. It's freeware & integrates into IE6 & Opera7.

    Kontiki at has proven to be an unassuming workhorse.

    From the website :
    The Kontiki Delivery Manager is Windows-based client software that enables efficient, secure delivery of content to users' desktops through the Kontiki Delivery Management System.

    Plus it's free!

    Do any of the above come without spyware.

    I know gozilla has and havent bothered with them since Kazaa lite

    But I could use a good one
