It's heuristic detection by the antivirus, that's caused because EagleGet has optional offers in it's installer which can be deselected for a clean install. It's not a virus.

Thanks for the release.. I thought that project was discontinued.

I am still having problems with Opera integration.

1 - Closed Opera, installed Eagleget.
2 - Opera opened and I saw the EG extension on the bar.. with an warning icon.
3 - Closed Opera, installed EG again.. still the problem not solved.
4 - Removed the extension.
5 - Dowloaded the extension from Chrome Web Store, restart Opera, still the problem is there.
6 - I used the "repair browser integration" in the EG settings.. still not solved.

Please fix the Opera problem
I am using  latest stable Opera, Windows 10 64bit, EG


It works fine for me on the latest Opera 64bit version.

Here's what I do when I dont get the extension to work properly for a clean re-install of EagleGet

1. I uninstall the browser using IOBit Uninstaller and remove all leftover traces using Powerful scan.
2. I run a scan with CCleaner and deletes any temporary files [all options on except Wipe Free Space], then I run the Registry Cleaner and remove all associated entries
3. I run a scan with Wise Registry Cleaner and removes all leftover entries
4. Using Ultrasearch I scan the computer for any leftover files and folders of EagleGet and delete them all especially the folder where the extensions are stored the file name is [kaebhgioafceeldhgjmendlfhbfjefmo]. By default Ultrasearch scans only C: drive, but you can add folders to scan from the UI.
5. Restart the computer, re-install the browser, re-install EagleGet and everything is good as new.

Screenshot or video that shows the problem?

#5 Re: Report Bugs » download stops at 100% with 0B/s On Google drive links » 2017-03-24 14:13:30

I have this problem sometimes. Why dont you right click on the task and select Refresh download address that will take you to the website and the 'Download' link will become active again.

Otherwise, I simply rename the .egt file to the extension that the file corresponds to and it works fine most of the times

The 99% pausing of download is a long standing problem with EagleGet, and hopefully the developer has a final fix to this issue that's been there for ages.

Try to run the program as an administrator and see if that helps.

You need to have Visual C++ installed. Download it from here (it has all the packages from 2005 to 2017): http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details … aller.html

#8 Re: Report Bugs » EagleGet Doesn't Continue/Resume Downloads After DropOuts? » 2017-03-03 22:30:13

You can refresh expired links by right clicking on the task and then click Refresh Download Addres which will take you to the webpage where you can download so that it will resume incomplete download

Apart from MS abandoning support for it, the O.S has numerous security holes by now thats unpatched, so technically you're still vulnerable to malicious activities. To be safer you would need to upgrade your O.S, apart from the numerous programs that will eventually abandon support for WinXP in the near future.

#10 Re: Announcements » EagleGet v2.0.4.20 Stable (Updated:February 1, 2017) » 2017-02-09 15:30:05

Windows XP is outdated and Microsoft no longer supports. It's only a matter of time applications also follow the same route of dropping support for XP. You might need to upgrade your OS>

#12 Re: Report Bugs » Help not opening in EG Stable » 2017-01-01 19:26:29

It works fine for me. Check which one is your default browser [mine is Chrome]. You can also try switching to another default browser and see if it works.

#13 Re: Feature Requests » Web Spider / Grabber » 2016-12-16 14:45:36

You can do this by right click on the webpage, and click on Download all links using EagleGet, which then takes you to a window where you can select and filter what type of files you want to download from the website.

#14 Re: Report Bugs » EagleGet download of Google Takeout archive hangs, never completes » 2016-11-29 10:11:10

Refresh download address works when the download has stopped in between and is unable to be resumed. Seems like it doesn't support TakeOut though.

#15 Re: Report Bugs » EagleGet download of Google Takeout archive hangs, never completes » 2016-11-22 16:31:55

What happens when you right click on the task and select "Refresh download address"?

#16 Re: General » EagleGet Clean Uninstall Tips? » 2016-11-16 01:10:44

What I normally do in this case is to

1. Use IOBit Uninstaller to uninstall the application and use the powerful scan feature to delete remnants
2. Use UltraSearch and search for EagleGet and find any leftover folders and delete them.
3. Run CCleaner and clean-up the system.
4. Run Wise Registry Cleaner, and clean all remnant registry entries.
5. Use Find feature to search all EagleGet entries inside regedit and remove entries manually if any.

#17 Re: General » The last EagleGet installer that does NOT include third party offer? » 2016-11-16 01:06:06

It should be that doesn't include bundled installer.

The information is given here: https://forum.eagleget.com/viewtopic.php?id=3142

Give us the link where audio and video has been merged. Have you enabled FFMPeg?

Download from youtube? eagleget extension can grab it.

I use the Media Grabber. I copy the Youtube link and a notification shows up saying 1 video was grabbed.

The video and audio download but they do not merge. And they have the same file name so I don't have to rename anything for the video and audio to play. But it makes for a messy video folder. Nothing huge, just small stuff.

I don't have the kind of problem that you do. It merges well for 480p and 1080p videos for me.

#20 Re: General » how to restore deleted files downloaded by EagleGet » 2016-10-25 13:40:09

I'm not sure as I haven't used this feature, but did you check the Recycle Bin if it's still there? Or you might need to use a file recovery software like Recuva to restore if permanently deleted.

It is normal because the new installers are bundled with Yandex (for my geolocation)..
But these are all opt-out...please make them opt-in..
Bundle the installer but please do not check them by default.If users want the Yandex, they can enable it.

Some antivirus vendors are very strict about this kind of bundled installers. (ESET, Emsisoft, Kaspersky etc)

I want to give you another suggestion.
Please make a good seperate download page for EagleGet..and please give us an option with no bundles (lite installers)
It will be better for users who wants only EagleGet no bundles.

Anyone who faced an infection of Yandex components, you can scan your PC with Zemana Free AntiMalware

What do you think about my suggestions developers?

It's not easy for freeware developers to keep maintaining a project without any source of revenue. If all installers came opt-in, it would deny their major share of income through sponsored content.

What is more important in this case is that the bundled installers come with only reputable offers and not malware/scareware content. The developer has promised to abide by the former. Even big names like CCleaner and also surprisingly even antiviruses like Avast, AVG, Panda, Qihoo 360 and a lot of other freebies bundles their product with other products.

If you have read this thread, Help EagleGet to keep this software Free you can see the reasons as to why Eagleget decided to go for sponsored content. The big question is "Do you want a continuously updated and great freeware product" or "Do you want a dead project or watered down product with features limited to paid version". Thankfully EagleGet decided to go for the first choice. smile

#22 Re: Report Bugs » Eagleget extension not working - Opera 36.0.2130.32 stable » 2016-09-20 03:23:05

It works for me on Opera 39. I installed Download Chrome extension for Opera, and then installed EagleGet over the Chrome store. It works fine.

#23 Re: General » Download Button In Firefox Missing » 2016-09-16 15:54:28

Did you try turning off your antivirus during installation. And then manually drag the .xpi file into addons in the browser.

Also try re-installing the program after an uninstall.

#24 Re: General » Download Button In Firefox Missing » 2016-09-14 15:53:41

Oh never mind. You can go to your addons folder under EagleGet installation folder: C:\Program Files\EagleGet\addons and then copy the .xpi file from there

Open Firefox and then type about:addons and then drag the .xpi file into it. This will install the extension again.

#25 Re: General » Download Button In Firefox Missing » 2016-09-14 09:23:06

Could be related to the offer that EagleGet is packed with. You have the option to decline it during  installation.

To get the download button back you can try installing the extension from Mozilla's addons
