It contain spyware or virus or trojans or something I can't remember. Anyway, it's rubbish.

it is a leechers application
because it will shutdown DC++ when all downloads are finished thus stopping uploads

Well I don't think my downloads will be stopping anytime soon so... ;)

But will most hubs kick me on sight if I use it? I'd love grabbing more filelist, but not at the cost of getting banned from hubs :(

And spyware you say?

Use it! It probably works great for you!

Yeah why don't you write back to us after you have tried it!

We would love to take part of your experience with the client in question!

yeah-fucking-yeah-lets-try-it-ly'ers
Everyone is supposed to download from the hubs, - I don´t know why, but I never do anymore.

Well then you just go right on ahead and install it. I'll just wait for the feedback :roll:

And it's not a client, it's an add-on. Clients don't need a fully functional version of DC++ sitting on the computer to work.

Yup. But I don't feel like getting kicked out of several hubs I actually like, hence I resorted to the community's experience (or lack thereof) on the subject. Since it's an add-on for the official DC++, I'm hardly going "Hey look at my hastily made and bug riddled DC++ clone"!

But jeesh, sorry I asked! :roll:

No idea on the source, I just bumped into the thing on the Cnet downloads site. Your guess is as good as mine.

Software that uses words like super, mega, ultra etc. and have a .biz domain. And have a website with only 1 button to download the software.
Are in my opinion high risc to be a virus.
And look at the "new" features? are the really new ?

I see what you're getting at, though the Cnet people have a fair amount of credit in my book blocking that sort of stuff. But (once again)... that's why I asked here first :)

A while ago someone submitted a DC++ Installer with some form of malware in it, to download.com (I'm hazy on all the details - I'm sure someone else knows) so I don't give these people much credit for anything.

Well I just downloaded and installed it (don&#8217;t know if it works at all) and found no spyware, virus or other crap on my system (used spybot, ad-aware and avg) so I would say its safe to try out without risk of infection.

They refused to remove derived versions of DC++ that were missing the source when I last contacted them. They did remove versions with spyware that the Kapersky antivirus program detected, but not the others.

Don't trust them too far.

And the last version of "FasterDownloads" that I saw was just a string replacement of "DC++".
