Question about Computers & Internet
The problem seems to be with the serial key you provided for IDM. IDM blocks every pirated serial key and it is the reason you are getting the above message.
The solution this problem has been given by techforum4u.com
The solution for this problem is not easily available and the only step the user left with is uninstalling the software completely. Even after several installation and uninstallation the problem exists unless you format your computer.If you want a permanent and exact solution for this problem follow these steps:-
1. Exit IDM from the taskbar before entering the serial.
2. Disconnect active connections to the internet.
3. Then go to the directory C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc and locate the file 'hosts'
4. Open the "hosts" file with "notepad".
5. on the last line enter the following address as shown and save.
6. Now, again enter the "fake serial" and wait for few seconds.
7. your IDM is registered again.
8. No wonder you would be facing this problem again but without panic use a "new fake key" ( this time steps 3,4 and 5 are not required, the only thing required is "a keygen" for generating a new key. For IDM 5.14 Dr.Carbon Keygen is used ).
