The one freeware Youtube downloader I've tried, that I would advise you to AVOID TOTALLY is:
E-ZSoft YouTube Downloader
Its claims are great sounding, until you download it and find out it doesn't download batches, etc, as it claims and you experience the reality of its limitations and annoying nags!
Only downloads one at a time and pops up an annoying nag screen with sound alert all the time, trying to get you to buy the pay version!
the desktop icons and toolbar go off and on closing any open computer programs with i, but not browsers.. I can't use add/remove programs either. I read somewhere that flash player can cause this. really don't know, just know it's driving me nuts!! I can't delete it cause nothing will stay on long enough. run and search even shuts down. my system is compaq .presario sr1115cc, Win XP. any input will greatly appreciated. thanks!
