    This program is a program basiclly intending to download multiple files quickly. When my brother downloaded and used it, he didn't know it didn't work because he went off to download multiple files. I went to download something with it and run it, and it was corrupt. I tried again, corrupt again. I tried downloading it normally and the file was fine.

    A few weeks later (the past few days) i noticed that speeddownload was blocking downloading from any browsers because it had a plugin which i have no idea what it did. I thought i deleted the whole thing and then i searched why icouldn't download and i realized i had to go searching for all of its components. I deleted them all after found and i finally found out that speeddownload was the problem of why i couldn't download.

    The same thread i researched it on a different forum said that it was known for viruses and trojans.

    See what research does

    i bought this program and use it regularly, and it works just fine. i turned off the browser plugin though and use it with the flashgot firefox extension.

    before spreading misinformation about this product (viruses/trojans) you might want to actually purchase a legit copy instead of using warez that was probably infected.

    It was a trial version and for mac. Maybe a windows version works fine. But from what i had it corrupted the files and i wasn't able to download from browsers.
