ADaware is a nice program, and yes, you would be surprised how much spyware there is on your system.
Comments I've seen about GetRight suggest that they've dropped the spyware feature, but I'm not sure. Knighty's response is in line with those who like it.
Some people, though, report grief with their registry, etc, when trying to get rid of the spyware. Beyond that, posted reports on the shareware sites are abt 50-50 as to whether the program works at all.
Brett - re Leech FTP, thanks for the alert. It does look like a great FTP program, and they are soon to release a not-free product which will replace it. I can't for the life of me, though, figure out how to use it to download files from a webpage.
>>It does require right clicking a link and copying the link to the clipboard for it to capture, but it works great.<<
I'm sure there's something really basic here I don't know, but many links to files on webpages (not FTP sites) don't have the pathnames, so I'm not clear what I'm copying. Absolutely haven't a clue, and the documentation is kind of sketchy. Help....
Again, what I want is something that will download from the web, allow resume if something gets messed up, and will disconnect when the download is finished.
