UVQW0-X54FE-QW35Q-SNZF5

FJJTJ-J0FLF-QCVBK-A287M







Part 3:      EDIT HOSTS FILE

  • This Part is the Most Important Part So Read and Follow Carefully
  • In this part We will edit the Hosts file of windows to disable the connection between IDM and Registration server of IDM
  • There are 2 Methods of  Editing Hosts File

METHOD 1:

Step1) Go to:   C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc



Note: If you are Using Windows XP Skip to Step 4 of this Method

Step 2) Right Click on Hosts File Go to Properties


Step 3) Go to Users Under Security Tab and Click Edit


  • Click on Users

  • Click on Allow Box In front of Full control Option and Click Apply
  • Click Yes
  • Click OK
  • Click OK again


Step 4) Open Hosts File with Notepad



Step 5) Copy and Paste These Codes into Hosts File 

Codes:


127.0.0.1 tonec.com

127.0.0.1 www.tonec.com

127.0.0.1 registeridm.com

127.0.0.1 www.registeridm.com

127.0.0.1 secure.registeridm.com

127.0.0.1 internetdownloadmanager.com

127.0.0.1 www.internetdownloadmanager.com

127.0.0.1 secure.internetdownloadmanager.com

127.0.0.1 mirror.internetdownloadmanager.com

127.0.0.1 mirror2.internetdownloadmanager.com




 Step 6) Under File Click on Save

Note: Check again By opening Hosts file with Notepad to Confirm if The codes are saved

  • After addition of codes the size of Hosts file will also increased (from 1 Kb to 2 Kb) this is another way to Confirm that



METHOD 2 (Windows 7, 8, 8.1):

  • This is another fast, Short and easy Method to edit Hosts file
Step 1) Enable the Show Hidden files Option of Windows



Step 2) Go to Start in Windows 7 or Search in Windows 8, 8.1
            and type notepad then Right Click on Notepad and Click on
            Run as Administrator



Step 2) Under File Click Open


Step 3) Nevegate to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc    then click All files


Step 4) Select Hosts File and Click Open


  • Then Edit and save Hosts File according to Step 5 - 6 of Method 1


Part 4:

Note: People Often Make Mistakes In this Part  So Read and Follow Carefully

Step 1) After editing Hosts File Restart the Windows

Step 2) After Restarting the Windows A Famous ERROR will appear
(FAKE SERIAL ERROR) Just Click OK

Note: Dont touch the Hosts File at this Point



Step 3) After clicking OK the Registration Forum will appear AGAIN
             Just Fill it out once AGAIN and Click OK





Step 4)  After clicking OK a window will appear asking to Repair IDM
            We dont want to repair it Most of people make Mistake
             in this step so JUST CLICK CANCEL




Step 5) Click OK
Note: this window is clearly saying that IDM cannot Connect to IDM Server :D
Even if you try to open IDM site it won't this is why we edited the Hosts file





NOW YOU HAVE Fully REGISTERED LATEST IDM AT THIS POINT FOR LIFE TIME





HOW TO UPDATE IDM?

  • As the Connection Between SOftware and Server is disconnectid 
  • It won't Update Automatically.



  • So We Have to update it Manually It isnt difficult its very easy and very Fast
  • Just Type IDM on Google and Download Latest Version of IDM and Install it
  • Nothing else is needed to do You should have the Latest version ALWAYS

  8. Just confirm that codes of IDM are saved in Hosts file. and if they are saved then nothing to worry about just fill out registration forum once more and it won't appear again.

    2. Have you deleted download manager folder from regedit before registering IDM?
      I suggest you to uninstall IDM then Delete the folder from regedit and then register it by following above method
      Use "Method 2" to edit hosts file and then confirm saved changes.
      Hope, it will work.

  16. hello sir..
    again and again daily.. wnevr i restart my lap.. i hv to give name email and a serial key :( :( :( :( how to make it once completely got haked ?????? plss rply me

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. appearing of serial number again and again only means that your hosts file doesn't contain the codes mentioned above, or not properly contain codes
      (codes should be properly saved in hosts file as shown in image).
      in case that the codes are properly saved in your hosts file then you need to uninstall IDM, remove its file from registry by going to "regedit" and start the process again (during registration disconnecting internet will be helpful in your case)

      If still there is a problem (very rarely) then windows hosts file isn't working and you should reinstall your windows.

      Delete
    2. Yes that error will come daily..But you should copy one of the serial keys from above and paste it in notepad so that whenever that form comes you can register...

      Delete

    1. I have also updated my IDM to Build 12 and everything is fine as always. goo.gl/N6J7Ea
      It seems that your hosts file is somehow disturbed. So first look at your hosts file and if It has all those essential codes Properly then you need to delete old files by following above method and rewrite the Hosts file and install latest IDM and register it.

      Delete
  27. I installed IDM version 12 using the above instructions and its giving me this error message when l try to download, : The requested server is valid, but it does not have the correct associated data being resolved for (The host itself exists, but is not directly reachable).
    Details: Cannot find server r7---sn-aigllnek.googlevideo.com

    Can you please help.

  29. Hi,
    I also use IDM for long time using this method but since the last update, I can no longer activate IDM.
    I can't use the Free version even if I delete all the file in registry... It seems they change something, their server or what.
    I'll follow your blog to see evolution... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  30. wow... thanks much, still works but i noticed when i tried opening IDM and running the registration again after saving the edited host, i noticed from the codes that some of the "1" changed to "#". So what i did was to changed them all back to "1", save the edited host but dint close it immediately, ran the registration again and everything worked out fine.. so thumbs up mehn!!

    1. Its not the problem of IDM software the working of download panel on YouTube is controlled by Browser extension make sure that your IDM Browser Extension is up to Date.
      There are solutions for this on IDM official site. But you have to use proxy to read if you have edited your hosts file.

      Go to: zend2.com

      IDM directory files using "Part 1 of the method"

      if you can go to internetdownloadmanager.com it means that your Hosts file

    Disconnect from internet after the hosts editing and then restart. After reboot, the popup appears, make sure you're still disconnect and do the final part.

  99. LOL in fact it worked 1 hour -_-'
    IDM is able to ban using IP adress or by adding some strange file in app and/or PC...

  106. updated to 6.21, it keeps reporting a caution message saying idm is registered with a fake serial, it is possible to stop this notification because it appears time and again. But its working well.

  107. Thnx a Admin for this blog of yours.
    It helped alot
    Do keep updating :)

    For those still getting the error forfake serial key.
    Update the HOSTS file with the below lines in addition to what is already present.

    127.0.0.1 www.secure.registeridm.com

    127.0.0.1 www.mirror2.internetdownloadmanager.com

    This will definitely do the work.

  110. I successfully went to the last step, but after I clicked ok, idm just shut down. When I tried to open it again, it just gave me the same error message. How can I fix this?

  111. Folks, If it keeps showing that message after every restart, make sure the hosts file, just before the new 10 lines, has an EMPTY LINE !!!
