    In XP Pro I used Free Download Manager free with no trouble at all.
    I also used Gadwin Print Screen free with no trouble.
    However I haven't been able to see that these two are approved for use in W7.
    Do any of you know what I could use?
    Thanks.

    The Firefox browser comes with a pretty good download manager built in. Or if you like there are some enhanced downloaders available. I use Firefox religiously because I like some of the extensions a lot. A lot of people keep saying Google chrome is faster. I just can't get to where I really like it myself.

    For Print Screen I've always used Windows Paint. But then I don't use Print Screen very often. Maybe there is something better out there. I'm sorry but I don't know.

    I don't see why Gadwin Print Screen wouldn't work.

    I run older 16 bit apps with no problem.

    Gadwin Print Screen is a 32-bit app.

    If it fails, you can right-click on the executable file,choose properties, choose the Compatibility tab and run it in XP Mode.

    Thanks for the help.
    FDM is working and I'll install Gadwin or snagit later.

    I've never used Gadwin, but Snagit, IMHO, is the best
