I'm thinking of changing my download manager in light of new info here recently that suggests Getright has spyware installed, to FreshDevices, FreshDownload.

To register for this I need to send them a non disposable email addy, which I don't really want to do...

So my question is:- does anyone else have this download manager and not get any spam? or are there other free managers out there that are good enough?

thanks in advance

I downloaded Fresh Download 2 months ago and used my new Gmail address. So far I have no spam, but you will receive a weekly newsletter from them which you can unsubscribe from. :)
I never ended up installing it though, so i can't tell you what it is like. :8}

Thanks Johnboy I missed that one.

I think I'll try Download Express instead, although it looks as though I could stick with Getright after all...

Getright USED to have spyware. It doesnt now. BUT it isnt free either.

Ooops, thanks also 4bes.

I think now I've read Johnboy's review that I won't risk it just yet and may even stick with Getright after all, if I find DExpress a bit too much (or little!)
