    I meant rapidshares software, is IDM not a tool you can get from rapidshare

    anyways clear you cache,cookies, enter login for rapid and password again


    run ccleaner and remove rapidshare from cookie list if in there

    IDM is Internet download manager - it allows you to download multiple links at same time.

    cheers, must be just me then.

    maybe a reboot will sort it out.

    All you can try is to delete all cookies with ccleaner. (if you use ccleaner then remove rapidshare cookie from the safe list as in usually when you use ccleaner you add it to KEEP list so as to not have to keep entering login pass after running ccleaner) )

    1. Delete cookies

    2. Proxy?

    3. Check account details?

    It's a DNS problem with your ISP, happens sometimes, happened to my dad … It's a DNS problem with your ISP, happens sometimes, happened to my dad earlier. Easy enough to fix with the hosts file but you don't sound that computer literate so dunno if you'd be able to do it.



    It's not difficult to explain how to edit the hosts file to a "computer illiterate" person. The reason is not the hosts file either (but I will not explain what it is). Furthermore, the OP has restored the PC to factory settings therefore, the hosts files will be defaulted to the usual file with a single 127.0.0.1 entry.

    I bet if he adds my additions to the hosts file rapidshare … I bet if he adds my additions to the hosts file rapidshare works.http://beforedark.co.uk/theronkinator/hosts.txtYour move.



    My move and I think you are right so my apologies (but I won't go so far as to say computer illiterate). The isp could be having the DNS problem so the way around it is to manually map the IP address rather than use the IPs DNS server.

    Strange, entering the IP address 195.122.131.6 does not produce anything either so maybe the issue is not the hosts file. Try entering the IP address directly which will not use the hosts file.
