4. More Advanced Features
Nearly all of the more advanced features are available from either the Download Status (to get there, just double-click on the GetRight Logo in your Windows tray icons (See Right) or the Configuration window (to get there, just right-click on the GetRight Logo in your Windows tray icons, and pick "Configuration" from the menu). Acting as Server with security programs
Some Internet security programs (like ZoneAlarm) can give a warning that GetRight is trying to act as a server on some downloads. This is caused by part of how the FTP protocol can work...the FTP server you are downloading from can connect back to GetRight for sending the actual file you want.
GetRight can be set to do FTP connections differently: On the Proxy configuration page in GetRight, check the very top box about "Use PASV mode for FTP transfers." That will have GetRight always connect out so should avoid the prompt.
Can GetRight scan files for viruses?
GetRight lets you choose to use whatever virus scanner program you want. You may select the program to use on GetRight's "When Done" configuration page. NOTE: Most virus scanners will scan the file automatically.
Click Monitoring with AOL 9
A new click monitoring method added in GetRight version 5.1 can really help with AOL 9. It also works with many other Internet Explorer based browsers, such as Avant and MSN Explorer.
Go to the "Monitor" page of GetRight's configuration and make sure that both Internet Explorer Moniroring checkboxes are selected.
When you browse the Internet with AOL it is basically using an embedded version of IE (this might change to Netscape in newer versions of the AOL software), so check the "Monitor" page of Getright's configuration window and make sure that click monitoring for IE and Netscape is enabled.
However, some of AOL's own files (when they send you updates and some others) are on their own system and Getright can't catch those.
Upgrading Windows (or other things) can over-write GetRight's settings. To fix: on the Monitor configuration page in GetRight (or "Web Browsers" page in the Wizard), uncheck the box for monitoring of Internet Explorer, then click OK to apply the changes, then go back and re-check the box. That will fix this in most cases.
Click monitoring stopped working all of a sudden. Why?

There have been some reports of crashes when a download finishes and is scanned by Norton anti-virus software.
To fix this, use the /M- and /B- switch to disable checking memory and the boot record when checking the newly downloaded file.
This is an Antivirus program from Computer Associate.
It causes a lot of disk activity when GetRight is downloading. Not sure there's a fix other than using a different virus scanner…
There might be a fix coming in GetRight version 5.0. Go to the 5.0 "Advanced/Saving" configuraion screen and use the "Extra File Write Cacheing." If the antivirus is scanning as things are written to disk, this could help, by having GetRight write bigger blocks of information less often.
Downloading from Yahoo Groups
GetRight 5.0 can now download from yahoo groups. But it takes some extra configuration. See link below.
