    I have a slow internet connection so I tried IDM and it helps me to download files fast and easily for work and personal use. The other features I like is the ability to resume broken downloads and auto queuing of files for later download which frees my time for other tasks. It is an excellent program and I hope to win a license which would be awesome. Thanks.

    hi please,count me in for this superb give away.I have been using IDM for couple of years now and I am mighty impressed with its features and the ease of use. Though it is named Internet Download Manager but the main purpose of its use is download speed acceleration. I have tried many other free/paid tools but none could match IDM’s download acceleration. It is capable of increasing the download speed up to 5 times..

    here is my share in facebook

  7. please,count me in for this give away..I have used many managers to download files from the Internet, but Internet Download Manager surpass them all. IDM supports proxy servers, ftp and http which makes it unbeatable. Plus the integration with most browsers, such as:
    -Internet Explorer
    Chrome and many other popular browsers.
    The program has several categories to which the downloaded files are saved: a compressed, music, documents, programs, films, unfinished. I just do not use these categories, and I deleted them and I record files in a folder of general, which shows in the options settings. Thanks to the segmentation of longer files can be shared so that the download is faster. Through IDM can download flash videos from sites like YouTube, MySpaceTV, and Google Video. The program has an option to resume the download, which works when you suddenly stop us downloading from a sudden lack of internet. Downloaded files can now scan with your antivirus software, which we indicate in the settings. Further, the pros of this program are:
    -off by a computer program after downloading the file
    IDM-customize the appearance by adding, removing the buttons in the toolbar. -Download additional styles toolbarów program so that we can look to suit your needs
    – And the most important feature of this program updates. The program informs us about available updates and downloads them to us. Thank you for the contest

    Some haven’t told why you wanted to win the license as a result of which IDM team didn’t want to count you in.

    Some of you who have shared it on their walls haven’t liked our Facebook Fan page.

    Some of you have just liked the post, but haven’t shared it.

    Some of you who have shared it only on twitter have locked your twitter page as a result of which We couldn’t find the share.

    Anyways, There are loads of giveaways that would be shared in the near future. Hopefully that time around all the conditions would be fulfilled by you guys.
