Yes. It seems pretty basic the big downside is that it can only manage downloads from http sites.

Ah, you took the words right out of my mouth,lol. I came back here to post specifically the same thing you did. Besides the error problems, it doesn't seem to integrate with IE. Time to rollback this crap off me PC.

Also the uninstall part of troubleshooting is useless. I used an uninstaller which in my opinion cleaned it up farily well. I re-installed, launched it and there's my last failed download attempt in the dialog.
