KaZaA Lite works wonderfully, and gets rid of the spyware/popups that plain KaZaA has.

I've been using Download Express for a long time. It's fast, no ads, resumes, works great with no problems, completly free.

Oops, haha....stupid me; but hey it was fairly late and I hadn't gotten much sleep.

I've used DAP, and from what I remember there weren't any ads.

I've used many download agents, but I've always come back to DAP. It's easy to use and has not once messed up a download for me. It does have ads, but those are easily removed.
