You know... I tried Flashget once, when I was still using 56k modem and I thought, "wow this is great program" until I found out that it installed spyfare crap in my system. :?

And look here http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/amazes ... esoft.com/ :?
I know that the siteadvisors info is outdated. So it might not contain spyware anymore, but for me, if it once contained spyware it always contains spyware.

I tried Spybot after installing Flashget. It found nothing. So no spyware

Ok good to hear that it doesn't bundle spyware anymore, since otherwise it is really good program. :)

hello? before you could (OPTIONAL) install flashget with an ad, that's why some say it's adware, but what's wrong with it?
you could buy the license key and get rid of the ads too :D
did u prefer to had a 15day trail or a full functional with a small ad on the top right?

i used both fdm and flashget, but now... fdm has no chance compared to flashget since they're both in the same "market"

New Flashget has no more ADs !!
Criticisms
Poor integration with download dialog box of non-IE browsers except Mozilla Firefox (when using the Flashgot Extension or FlashGet Extension(ver 1.72 only).
Unregistered versions contain Cydoor Pop-up ads.
Silently installs FlashGet Toolbar on Internet Explorer and hides itself by default. Avast! Antivirus detects it is adware. The toolbar can be removed and does not affect the FlashGet application.
Note: In version 1.72, the Cydoor ads removed.

yes, cause FDM is much better than FG :)

I have used both for about a month - now FG is gone from my PC ;)
