    Internet Download Manager is a program that accelerates downloads. If you do not know that you have such a program on your computer, then just Uninstall it. I have this problem too with it, so I just uninstalled it.

    To uninstall it go to:

    >Control panel
    >Add or Remove Programs

    Find Internet Download Manager in there, choose it, and then click Change/Remove on the right and follow the setup steps (Don’t forget to mark “Complete” when asked)

    Good luck

    Probably you already uninstalled internet download manager.

    To fix this massage:
    1. open your computer with “SAFE MODE”.
    2. Then open “program files” folder.
    3. Delete “Internet Download Manager” folder manually from the “program files” folder.

    After restart your computer work normal.

    This is the solution :
    1. Uninstall IDM
    2. Click your Start button then select RUN, in the Run box that opens type this simple command: REGEDIT then you get the windows registry editor
    choose Hkey local machine then software
    3. Search for internet download manager folder ‘ which contains some files-like ‘ delete the folder by clicking with right boutton

    I do it in safe mode and it works
    reinstall IDM and you’re done.

    nice one mizou..

  60. jon says:

    Great advice. But even with revo uninstaller, your suggestion to search the registry for ‘internet download’ still showed a few keys for some settings leftover, despite me having to do a full uninstall.

    In the future, I “record” the installation with revo uninstaller to make sure every registry adjustment during installation can be eliminated in the future.

    To get IDM running again, I ended up using a torrent that already has a pre-formatted exe file and reg file.
