Download accelerator Plus(DAP). Does anybody know if this program is malicious or safe. I like it but it shows up in one of my adware scanners.
Thank you
Floyd

The free version has some adware.

DAP is not technically malware, but it may include malware and allow it into your system. DAP downloads ads to be displayed in your program window, your Internet Explorer toolbar, and through pop-up type advertising.

@floyd

You can have a very safe alternative by downloading Mozilla Firefox and then installing their extension called "DownThemAll"
