      just to let you all know - ive been argueing with servage as when i download 100mb it shows as 1GB used - and ive just realised it's downloading 10 chunks of it

      ive dones ingle thread and i do indeed transfer 100mb so this must do 10 x what it should

      something to keep inmind when using it - for me anyway that's how it seems to work

      Wow thanks alot for the link, not only did the TCP/IP optimizer fix my extremely slow download speeds which was really slow, an example being it struggling to load a 3 minute youtube video. It brought my speed back to a normal 5mb but the link also brought my attention to a brilliant firefox add on (Downthemall) Thanks alot =D.
