Why is my internet download manager not working anymore?
Question by Akshay Kumar /

My internet download manager stopped working recently. I tried installing it again (newer version), but that also didn’t work. I also tried to use DAP, but it wasn’t accelerating the downloads.

I could download faster in Chrome than it. In IDM, when I start downloading, it writes Connecting, but after that nothing. The request times out after some time.

My friend is also having the same problem. I live in a university hostel where the internet is provided by the university via WLAN. My other friends are using IDM and it’s working fine.

Please help! I cant figure it out.

    Hello, Akshay. I got u a link contain the lates IDM


    how to use the software:

    1) Set up the Software fully
    2)run "Unregister.IDM.reg", [remove all the registry file for old serial.]
    3)save the crack files in directory C:Program FilesInternet Download Manager   or any directory that u saved ur IDM software
    4) run the registry file of the crack

    Ensure about the proxy setting, university usually renews their proxy to reduce the net usage in side campus.
