    Thanks, I applied both the first and 2nd options and it worked for me. Though I originally used a crack copy before I now purchased the original copy but still receives the fake key message. Thank you for the post

      Alas you can make use of any free HOSTS file editor or open notepad with administrative privileges and then edit the HOSTS file.

    Re: In the right hand pane, select CheckUpdtVM and edit its value to 0

    Found nothing in the registry that bears the name “CheckUpdtVM” or anything even similar to it ?

    worked like a charm for me but i never had an illegal copy of idm on my machine. i did however have a different license on it at one time before i bought a second. i used the first solution, (Tweaking IDM files) and its been 3 days with no more problems.

    Doesn’t work any more. After every restart, IDM modifies the host file on its own and puts a # in front of every entry with “idm” or “internetdownloadmanager” so that your host file ignores the line. Gotta block them through your firewall or URL filter through your router now.

    if you have an error message “fake serial number", just run this in a Command Prompt :

    reg delete “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{6DDF00DB-1234-46EC-8356-27E7B2051192}" /v MData

    Enjoy !

      Newest ver:
      reg delete “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\WOW6432Node\CLSID\{79873CC5-3951-43ED-BDF9-D8759474B6FD}” /v MData

      Add hosts entries and if local administrator lock down permissions on hosts file, owner = system after setting permissions to only allow read to users/administrators/system and IDM won’t be able to comment out sections. 🙂 enjoy.

        After every start of IDM, the host file gets modified on its own and a # appears in front of every entry with “idm" or “internetdownloadmanager" so that the host file ignores the line. how to prevent this?

          You may change the NTFS security permissions of the HOSTS file to prevent this auto-change.

      Run Notepad as Administrator, then open the ‘hosts’ file.

      Hi Gascon, it’s just a typo. It should be two lines instead of one. I have fixed this in the article. Thanks a lot for pointing out.
