After installation

I installed something called active alert
11301 some kind of program
There was siss program running behind the background of windows

The advertisment of the program slowed down my downloads.It does boasts up my
download speed but once the advertisment changes the speed goes down.Im using
56k.

Spybot picked up 1 registry keys and 3 files.

Download accelerator used to be good but because of the advertisment everywhere
in the program and the spyware that it contains.It made me change to another
program!!


Alot of people will agree at www.download.com Search for dap

Lots of negative feedback


They wrote back


Dear Sir,

Thank you for your contact,

Spybot detects DAP based on inaccurate factual errors and therefore is
unwarranted and mistaken, we are trying to make the relevant vendor correct
those inaccuracies and prevent this unjustified detection as if interfere with
DAP's installation integrity and may cause unknown malfunctions on the user PC.

You are invited to take a look at the product summery which is associate to DAP
on this product and compare it to DAP's license agreement and see by yourself
the factual inaccuracies.

We would like to remove any doubt: DAP is not a spyware nor it contain any
spyware.

We recommend you to exclude DAP from this product detection and reinstall DAP
from scratch to assure the integrity of DAP's installation on your PC.

Kind regards,

just because it displays adds dosn't make it spyware.

spyware reports back info about the user without informing the user about what it sends back. DAP has always been debateable if its spyware or not.

if the adds slow it down to much simply get an adware free downloader.

I'm running DAP 7.3 and I don't have any of those processes running in the background.

As far as I can tell DAP is not spyware, however it is adware - eg it displays ads, which uses your internet connection to display them. If you register with DAP the ads go away. I guess Adaware and Spybot detect DAP because of its adware rather than the spyware. Spend a little on registering the program and the ads will go away.
