For the first time, that Datafilehost site tried to install an executable when I clicked the download link. It said it was a "download manager" (and it tries to download it whether you 'accept' it by checking the box or not), but my antivirus found it "threatening".

You can opt out of it by unticking 'Use our download manager and get recommended downloads' on the download page. Then it will just download the standard way.

Or use the Google Drive link instead of DataFileHost; that's hassle-free as well.

Uncheck the "Use our download manager" box on the page before you click "Download".

If you use Calibre, you'll find using the tools as simple as can be, really, since they include a plugin for Calibre. And if you don't use Calibre, I recommend it highly!

Perhaps I didn't say it well, but I *did* try to download it without the box checked - it still tried to download the EXE first.

I will say this, it's highly likely that my Firefox add-in was blocking scripts, which might cause that to ignore the checked/unchecked state.

I did not have an issue downloading the tools after I unchecked the download manager option. I recall that that download manager download was offered in the last tools update.

If you're interested, there are other very simple alternatives for removing DRM. You are not limited to using the mentioned plug-in. I use a software as the plug-in that is made for Calibre did not work for me.

There aren't really any alternatives. There are just uncredited (and usually outdated) versions of the exact same "mentioned tools" that have been all wrapped up into (potentially dangerous) executables and given shiny new names... and oftentimes given a price tag.

Wish there were a single program to remove DRM. All these "tools" are very nice no doubt but as I understand it, I must install Python or something then another program then a third program and when I'm done I don't know which one to go to or how to use it. It's too complicated for me, and since I'm a lazy bastard to boot ...

At v5.2 the naming change require deletion of some of the plug-ins before updating.... after 5.2 is it necessary to continue deleting before updating? Thanks!!
