When you set max.downloads to 1, it downloads the tasks one-by one till every file in the queue has been downloaded.

#2 Re: Report Bugs » can't download from the site (warning, adult content) » 2017-07-22 03:44:34

I'm able to download the video that you said wasn't working. Is that the only site that you are not able to download from? Are you using the latest version? What browser are you using?

By the way the video was in .mp4 format.

I would like to suggest users to make informed decisions when looking at VirusTotal results.

"Heuristic detections" aren't actually malware but what antiviruses "think" these programs have could have content that might act like "malware".

"Adware detection" happens when a software comes with a wrapped installer, because the software "offers" something else with the installer. This is commonplace with most freeware software now, where it provides suggestions to some other software during it's installation. You cannot "ask" the antivirus vendors to remove it because that's how their databases work. On the other hand the good antivirus vendors knows what should be detected and what shouldn't be.

Here's an example for you. Panda Free Antivirus, comes with a wrapped installer that "offers" a toolbar during installation. This is the Virustotal link to it's installer with around 13 'detections'.

Now a so called "antivirus" which is supposed to remove malware is also getting "detected"? See the irony? The same goes for Avast, Avira, AVG but since their setup packages is larger than 128MB that VT can scan, I can't show their results.

EagleGet on the other hand has removed all other sponsored software offers and now simply offers a new extension they developed, 'iNewTab' that has been verified by Chrome store as clean. You may choose to install it to support the development of EagleGet or simply decline it.

#4 Re: Announcements » EagleGet v2.0.4.25 Portable (Updated:July 4, 2017) » 2017-07-08 17:42:27

The VirusTotal reports shows that the setup is clean.

The reason for these incidences is because, during installation EagleGet offers to install iNewTab extension for Chrome [which you can gladly deny], and is developed by the same team itself. This is why at VirusTotal , MalwareBytes flags it as "Optional bundled installer". Leading antiviruses like Kaspersky [the one I use] and BitDefender results are safe.

sorry for the inconvenience, the inewtab is newly developed product by the EG team. we will check our code ASAP for the automatically install the inewtab.

But we do not include any malware, The malware flag was caused by our sponsor, more importantly, we value your worries and removed all sponsored offers in this version.

This is a great move EagleGet. Removing sponsored offers and developing iNewTab extension. The extension is great.

Thank you for reporting the bug. In the meantime you can try setting max.number of downloads to 1 in the EagleGet configuration.

#8 Re: General » Resume existing files? » 2017-06-13 20:38:14

I'm not sure about this, but you could try changing the extension of these files to .egt and then import it to EagleGet by using Import/Export from .egt file function in Eagleget.

When it's added to the tasks in EG, try refreshing the link to see if it resumes or even identifies the file.

#9 Re: Report Bugs » EagleGet not showing all downloaded files on UI » 2017-06-10 20:38:49

I think this is a persistent bug that happens when EagleGet crashes. Hopefully will be resolved in next version.

#10 Re: General » Resume existing files? » 2017-06-10 20:29:46

How does the Import function work for you? Go to configuration and import .egt file or from EG database. If it's in either of these formats you can resume the partially downloaded file.

If you want to resume the file that's already in the tasks list of Eagleget, you can right click on the task inside EG interface and click on Refresh Link address if it's expired.

#11 Re: General » how to download torrent files like movies using eagle get » 2017-06-10 20:25:26

It's not exactly clear what you want. EagleGet doesn't support downloading torrents at the moment.

#13 Re: General » Integrated malware in an otherwise fabulous program? » 2017-05-25 22:37:33

Read more about it here: https://forum.eagleget.com/viewtopic.php?id=3142

It shows you why EagleGet had to be bundled with optional offers that can be declined during installation, much like most of the freeware programs out there. I can assure you there's no malware, as the "detections" are for these optional offers during installation.

It could be evil, but it's a necessary evil.

#14 Re: Report Bugs » virus » 2017-05-11 16:26:14

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 Everything 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 for Eagleget extension is kaebhgioafceeldhgjmendlfhbfjefmo on the computer.
5. Restart the computer, re-install the browser, re-install EagleGet and everything is good as new.

Screenshot or video that shows the problem?

#18 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.

#19 Re: Report Bugs » new laptop - can't execute downloaded » 2017-03-24 14:07:27

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

#20 Re: Report Bugs » Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library - Runtime Error! » 2017-03-18 15:58:48

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

#21 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.

#23 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>

#25 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.
