    On my Macbook I use Safari to browse the internet/download. When using Safari it will save whatever download you have currently so that if you stop the download it picks up where you last left off (say your computer crashes).

    Anyhow, occasionally it will do this with IE on Windows Vista, however 99% IE will not save my download position... Is there a setting I can turn on or off that will command IE to do this? If not, is there an app that will do this for me? :confused:

    to resume your downloads?

    getright is a nice download manager
    dl mage (ithink) is >> >> with rapidshare support
    ie6-7 will resume if the ie crash

    if you want just the page the ie7pro is the best tool for ie7 and it will resume you crashed site or tabs plus it haves many many options

    What I'm saying is IE isn't resuming my downloads right (I have IE7).

    I'll take a look at getright.

    Only problem with that is that I use a dsl connection in an apartment complex, and they automatically block incoming packets (ie; torrents, lime wire, ect ect...)

    I'll give this Download Accelerator app a try.

    Safari is still in Beta for Windows and not all of the features work as of now.

    My personal favourite is FreshDownload, so if you have problems with Safari give that a try.
