    Hello,

    The simplest thing to do would probably be to "Restore Defaults" (or something similar) in the programs options.
    If that doesn't work, you could reinstall the app, and check to make sure required firewall exceptions and open ports are available.

    In the past I have used several different download managers, and have found FDM to be the best:
    Free Download Manager - absolutely free download accelerator and manager

    Hi gangchen,

    We don't know what version you're using but maybe you should try a non-beta one. We don't know what browser you're using. We don't know a lot. We do know IDM has nothing to do with Windows 7 and this was posted in the wrong forum. However, I'd suggest you take up Mitchell's advice and find a program that works. Its possible YouTube changed their internal code to prevent people from leeching videos and your program couldn't compensate. Whether or not downloading videos off YouTube en-masse violates their terms is something you have to sort out. Its certainly not something we can support or even fix on our end.

    If you only use IDM to download Youtube content, may I suggest using "Youtube Downloader"
    Which allows you to downlaod and convert videos from Youtube, even in HD.
