Download acceralater 8 problem

I have downloaded the download acceralater 8 from the net ......Now the problem is that it hangs a lot due to which my PC gets several stops ......THis problem also occured when using the net ....I have a high end PC so no Ram or processer problem would be there with the speed ......I also hangs up my PC when using multiple windows or when downloading somethings ....

do u think this problem is due to download acceralater or is it a virus or sometype of another threat ?......

The only way to find out is to uninstall download accelerator and see if it still gives you problems. A firewall or virus scanner may also be interfering with it.

If you are on ADSL/cable, there isn't real need for a download accelerator. If you do need one though, I would recommend GetRight to manage my downloads. I was using this back in the days of dialup, no problems whatsoever.
Have a look at the following reviews for download accelerator - full of ads and spyware apparently..
