Free Download Manager: don't install it!

For almost two weeks my explorer (not IE, the real thing in Windows) tormented me with silly crash-reports and strange warnings. No spy ware scan whatsoever could detect anything. The error-message was always the same:
AppName: explorer.exe AppVer: 6.0.2900.3156 ModName: unknown ModVer: 0.0.0.0 Offset: 02d316d3
Today I was so desperate that I even checked the discussion on that error report on an Italian board. Now, my Italian is non-existent but what I did get was that in the discussion the term "Free Download Manager" came up quite often. So I decided to uninstall this application (which I still find quite useful). And, what shall I say, it did the trick! Free Download Manager causes system crashes with Windows XP Home SP2. Don't install the thing! Look for something else (FlashGet, for example -- http://www.flashget.com/en/download.htm)!
