GetRight works with your web browser to help you download files from the Internet. It can accelerate your downloads and can recover downloads if errors occur (resume downloading). It has many other advanced features such as scheduling, automatic dialing, and file searching.
Reviewing 6.5 (Sep 16, 2011)
Sadly this once great program is now virtually abandon-ware. There are several serious bugs in it that can lose your downloads that are likely never to be fixed.
Maybe one day someone will take up the mantel and it will again become a koing amongst downloaders...
Reviewing 6.5 (Aug 3, 2011)
This used to be a great download manager, but as of today there is no reason of this still being sold on their page. Development was abandoned years ago, and the "new" 6.5 version is nothing else that the previous one + a couple of things the author added/fixed long time ago before abandoning the project. Better to stick to programs still being worked on.
Reviewing 6.3e (Nov 10, 2008)
I emailed the author regarding several serious bugs, and got confirmation on each of them. That was about a year and a half ago as I write this. They persist to this day.

Win2000 is a dead OS.
You should consider upgrading...

W2k is still a supported Microsoft OS. I happen to dislike XP, though I own several copies, and absolutely won't be going to Vista, ever. I've mostly switched to Linux for day to day stuff.
GetRight is listed as being W2k compatible, and it isn't (now). This 6.3e upgrade breaks 2k, and it has done so on lots of machines I have tested with. Still no movement on bug resolution from the author.
