Hello,

I just download this freeware and I`m very surprise of the download speed increase.
Example :
- I downloaded windows 2000 sp3 network ( about 124 Mo )
- about 10 min without Download Express ( CPU average was 25 % )
- about 40 sec with Download Express. ( CPU average was more than 40 % )

I have some questions :

- installation : is it possible to have detail about what files, what register keys are added and where ?
- If I upgrade my Internet Explorer ( example from 5.5 to 6 ), am I obliged to reinstall Download Express ?
- If I uninstall Download Express, will Internet Explorer be safe, as before Download EXpress installation ?
- I would have some more documentation about antivirus command line, for example depending of the most common antivirus, is it possible to have details about thoses command line ? ( I know, because it`s a freeware, maybe I`m asking too much... )

And last, if I have to use it with ZoneAlarm, is download express supposed to act as a server or not ?


Thank you for your very good product, and maybe can I expect some of answers requested above...

Files -
Windows System (System32 for NT, 2000, XP) folder, MetaProducts subfolder:
- dep.exe
- mdpph.dll
- add_url.htm
- homepage.url
- manual.url
- support.url
- and number of .INT files - UI localization

It must work in most cases (you need to open DE Options dialog for sure).
Please write us support@metaproducts.com if you will have problems.

Yes. Please close all IE and Outlook windows, uninstall DE and reboot Windows (to remove files, locked by Windows).

Usually antivirus has all necessary information in the documentation. We will work on this documentation, thank you!

It can be necessary for some FTP servers (which don`t support Passive mode FTP connections).
Usually it acts as a client.

They are saved to the target file.

Unfortunately, we don`t have any 56k modem.
Also, the speed can depends on ISP too, I think.

Sincerely,
Alexander.
