I live in a country where there are power outages 2 to 5 times a day.

I am not a computer expert and need a Download Manager that is

(1) Very easy to use with a user friendly interface.

(2) Free of Spyware, Adaware

(3) Could be uninstalled easily if It is too complicated.

(4) Would not interfere with a firewall & Norton Antivirus.

Please help.

Thank You in Advance,

This is my preference, and I've tried at least a half dozen:

This program doesn't offer quite the number of features that might come with something like Download Accelerator Premium ... but then again, it's not unstable bloatware, either; it doesn't have any spyware, adware, or malware, and does an excellent job of downloading files from several servers at once (up to 16), with simple queuing and resume capabilities, even from sites that require a password and user name.

I'm very pleased with it, and I particularly like that it works well with an open source browser such as Firefox, without having to copy .dll files to a plug-ins folder so that it will be operational.

You might want to invest in a decent UPS while you're at it. Power outages generally aren't good for a computer.
