quick question i ned to know, can you resume downloads using GetRight if you shut down your computer or do you have to do it in one big sitting?mainly because i cant sit in front of my comp for 10+ hours(it took me 6 to get 30% of this thing downloaded and then i got an error!!!)

Um, thats the entire [i]point[/i[ of using getright. Although some servers dont support resume. If you go into properties for the files there should be an entry for resume. If it says yes, you can resume after shutdown. If it says no, you should check for a better server to download from. Theres no excuse for not supporting resume in this day and age, especialy for larger files.

One thing you might want to be aware of when using GetRight. It's LOADED with spyware. And the crap part is, if you uninstall the spyware GetRight stops working. Now, if you dont care who's gathering confidential and/or demographic data from your puter, then go for it, it's great software. But I just thought you might want to know.

I use Download Accelerator( myself. It has some spyware in the install too, but you can get rid of it with AdAware( and Download Accelerator still works.

nactrafe, I regularly remove spyware (adaware, and the only problem getright has is it keeps complaining about script errors in its advert pages. Other than that it works fine, and who needs ads anyway.
