Nighted, you got it backwards. The new owners got RID of the adware and junk, they didn't add any. The previous owners were the ones that put that in there. Pay attention.

Rather than going off and talking about some philosophical argument about paid vs free like some people here, I actually TRIED the software.

It's reliable and it does a great job on large segmented downloads (segments from several servers too). I'd like to see a more comprehensive approach download scheduler. Good software.

This came with no adware at all so I don't really know what some others are talking about.

This new version (5.0) is now maintained by the same authors of GetRight. No more spywares and other trash from the previous versions. It's all new. This is a great new version!

GoZilla was awesome....was. Then some company took over and totally f@#$ed it up with adware and bloated features. Ah, the memories....

Now there are soooo many free alternatives.

Like another recent reviewer, I used Go!Zilla in much earlier days. It's become truly awful software. It's now bloated, has a cluttered mess of an interface, and includes Radiate brand spyware, which seems to be among the worst of its kind. With so many alternatives freely available, it shouldn't even be considered.

I have never seen a more confusing user interface than GoZilla.

Gozilla is and always has been a great piece of software. If the spyware aspect is all that is stopping you using it then id suggest tracking down Ad-Aware which will find and, if necessary, kill any spyware/adware on your PC including all the radiate stuff.
As far as i can tell the spyware is the only downside to an otherwise pretty cool piece of software.

Do *** NOT *** use this program.
It can and will CRASH the Windows 2000 /SP1 OS, which is d@^n near to impossible to do. I have used Win2k for about a year. Even the BETA versions of Win2k *NEVER* had the BSOD. Go!Zilla 3.9 and 3.91 have caused it to happen TWICE.
I have lost my list over 500 files and almost 200MB of downloads.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It sux! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
By the way, previous version of 3.5 was not much better but it never crashed my machine in Windows 98 or NT4 and could usually be depended upon to complete downloads without corrupting files.

3.5 is superior to Getright but 3.9* is just doesn't make the grade. Surely it wouldn't have killed them to put a few controls on the new interfaces??? For god's sake lose that stupid zipzilla!!! The only reason I'm giving this a 1 is because a lower grade isn't available.
