Internet Download Manager Register Manually without using any ones activator

Internet Download Manager (idm)  

Hello Friends, today i am going to explain how to patch Internet Download Manager (IDM) manually. Using this hack you can register the Internet Download Manager (IDM) for free using you own credentials i.e register on your Name and email ID. I am explaining the manual method because most of my users said that patch and keygen contain viruses.

Now suppose you have updated your IDM (Internet Download Manager) and if you are using cracked or patched version, after updating IDM, it shows an error message that you have registered IDM using fake serial key. And after that IDM exits and hence it doesn't download anything.
This method also works for trial IDM that means download a trial IDM from there site and register the professional i.e. full version of IDM with your credentials for free using my method.

Let's start the tutorial, How to patch IDM manually.

Steps Involved:

Step 1: Download the IDM trial or If you already have IDM installed Update it by going to Help---}} then to check for Updates.
If you don't wanna update your version, Just click on Registration.

Step2: When you click on registration, Now a new dialog appears that is asking for Name, Last Name, Email Address and Serial Key.

Step3: Now Enter you name, last name, email address and in field of Serial Key enter any of the following Keys:

And click on ok to register.

Step4: Now after you click ok, it will show an error message that you have registered IDM using fake serial key and IDM will exit. Now here the method starts.

Step5: Now Go to START --}} Then go to RUN and type the following text and click enter:

notepad %windir%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

For Windows 7 users, due to security reasons you will not be able to save hosts file.
The trick is below:
First of all go to C:/ drive then go to Windows Folder and then go to System32 folder and then go to Drivers folder and then go to Etc Folder, in the Etc folder you will see the hosts file.

Now right click on hosts file and go to its properties, then go to security tab and then select your admin account, just below u will see an edit button (in front of change permissions), Now give the user full control and write and read rights and then click on apply and then click on Ok, now u will be able to edit the hosts file and save changes in it.

Step6: Now a notepad file appears something like this as shown below:

Now copy the below lines of code and add to hosts file as shown above:

After adding these piece of code, save the notepad file. And exit from there.
Now start your Internet download manager, and now you IDM has been converted to full version and specially when you update next time, your registration will not expire. That means it will remain full version for life time and you can update it without any problem.

  8. It works, for those whom said it doesn't work try this:

    Uninstall idm fully and restart your computer.
    Disconnect your internet connection
    Reinstall IDM
    Than Follow the above steps, yet instead of editing the hosts file in its original location
    copy the file to your desktop than edit it with notepad and save as hosts.

    Note: make sure that the file is saved as hosts not "hosts.txt" without the ".txt" extension

    Now copy the edited file and replace the original hosts file and it'll work fine.
