IDMan.exe [internet Download Manager] its an external download manager similar to DAP[Download Accelerator Plus]. It simply a download accelerator and is a great app to have. IDM is awesome it's download speed are super fast and can be configured to your browser and personal preferences. It. works independently outside of your browser so it won't lag or crash your browser. I Have test drove several download accelerators and I think IDM is the fastest and the best and the easiest to use.. It's not malware or spyware and in my opinion is completely safe.

Best practices for resolving IDMan issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with IDMan. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off doing a repair of your installation, or in the case of Windows 8, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the IDMan.exe process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries. A unique security risk rating indicates the likelihood of the process being potential spyware, malware or a Trojan. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware detects and removes sleeping spyware, adware, Trojans, keyloggers, malware and trackers from your hard drive.
