Sorry if this is the wrong place for a question like this one but does anyone know of any downloading program's? I am looking for a program that log-off then back on and it will start from the same place as you left of before loging off. I also DON'T want any spywhere if at all posable.

Thank's,
KOH

Google for "Download Managers."

One example is http://www.getright.com/

i wouldn't really get download managers. Most if not all, carry some sort of spyware. Either it will be present up front and very noticeable or it will be in the background.

My computer although if i download the same item from the same site within a certain amount of time the download pauses then resumes progress. But im sure if it is over months, even possibly a day or so it wouldn't do that.

Not all of them carry spyware. Granted, a lot of the free download managers out there do have spyware and adware packaged with them, which is why you have to do some research. You may also have to (heaven forbid!) buy one of the programs that has all the features that you are looking for and doesn't have any spyware/adware. Therefore getting a download manager is not a bad idea.

best bets are WinMX, shareaza (both 0% spyware). you can go for better programs such as limewire and kazaa lite, but they contain a little bit of spyware (just popups and banners on the program's GUI)

These programes you seem to be showing me look like chat room download's. What I am looking for is a program that will download off of webpages.
So EX: I want to download GiveupAready.exe from GiveupAready dot com. I can download 1/2 of it now and 1/2 when I log back on-line.

As Stated before Getright http://www.getright.com/ Will do what you want. Also Flashget http://www.amazesoft.com will do the same thing, the most popular as far as i know is getright tho.

1 i forgot to mention, FlashGet, it splits the downloading file into 5 different packets to ease the bandwidth so you can download different parts of each at any 1 time.

Getright is riddled with spyware, not sure about flashget.

You can remove the spyware from getright and it will still function, though.

guys, despite Kazaa Lite's awesomeness, it's illegal in the US. Therefore, DON'T download version 2.4.3. Don't PM me for further help on this matter.

There really isn't any other good P2P software... kazaa resurection is decent.

download accelerator plus has adware in it, but if you clean it with spybot s+d it'll still work.

Kazaa Lite was made illegal because it is a crack of an Australian program. That being said, it is an awesome piece of software, and is Spyware free. DON'T BREAK THE LAW THOUGH!!
