It is the best download manager around bar none. In the version I have, there seem to be a few hiccups. So take note.

I updated my software to the above referred version a few days back. I came across a new situation, one could call it a bug, with it.

I just noticed that a few options are apparently missing since I have not paid any attention to them over a few years now.

1. I don't see the option of turning on / off the "start with the system"
2. I don't see the option of turning on / off the " start "Q" on startup"

I used to start IDM from a startup batch file. I used "/s" switch in command line depending on the time of the day as I have "time of day dependent unlimited data" option from my ISP.

This version simply starts processing the "Q" regardless of the CLI switch.
