    Beware! Uses a "download manager" that accesses the internet. Allowing this behavior is VERY risky! In fact, using it can violate several federal compliance acts if used in settings subject to SOX, HIPAA, etc.

    A legitimate software will give you the option of downloading the entire installation file.

    Sorry, adding to my 'potential malware' list.
