If nothing else. I would strongly suggest that you use Ad-Aware or
equivalent scanner to determine if such a product is adware/spyware,
partcularly if the DM is free. Several years ago I used Gozilla! only to
find that it was calling home on a regular basis...

Just wondering on thoughts about download managers- do they pose are
security risk? Any known to be trojaned? The one I use is GetRight, does
anyone know if this one has known security issues?

Any thoughts appreciated, thanks.
