    I use these steps but it could not be changed. It shows the message ‘ Internet Download Manager has been registered with a fake serial number or the serial number has been blocked. IDM is existing…’

  2. solehin says

    the system said that the idm key is faked or blocked.. so my idm still cant be used(even after i did the 3 restart step) .. looking for help, thank you

  3. sendardou says

    it says idm is registered with a fake serial maybe because you have an internet connection On. Turn Off it first before you try entering the code. That will solve the problem. It works on me after doing it so hope it helps too =)

  4. sendardou says

    By the way if restarting your computer will return idm to saying it has fake serial. just redo things. Enter code offline, OK, then done. Turn on your internet and you can reuse it again. =)

  11. Shrikant says

    Hi, Firstly thanks.. there is one query, IDM work only with Internet explorer not with Google chrome any solution? Can we add with chrome?

    • says

      Hi Shrikant,
      Usually IDM will prompt you to add extension of IDM to your chrome browser. I think you skipped it somehow. That’s no problem. You can search in Chrome Webstore for IDM extension and Add it.

      Have a great day. 🙂

  12. Ryan says

    The serials numbers are all not available, it says that its fake and if i do it offline, something sort of crash happens to the IDM and it automatically shut down, and when i open IDM for the second time it worked just find, but i find a problem which is whenever i restart my computer or PC, i will have to reenter the registration code again, any suggestion or possible ways to get rid of this?

    • says

      Hi Ryan,

      I suggest you to please re-try the procedure. Please disconnect your computer from the internet before starting the procedure. It will work. I’m using IDM from months using the same procedure.

      Have a good day. 🙂

    I gone through your article about idm full. Very useful and nice. I am using win 7 home premium. Through Registry editor and Revo uninstaller, tried to remove idm but some traces will be there. could not remove. which free software will remove idm fully to reinstall again ? Before entering licence code etc., I have d/c internet and norton antivirus,firewall etc. idm is working. After shutdown or restart idm will work for only two days. why? Again I have tried, idm working. next day the same ‘exiting’ trial period over. Any suggestion to make idm full without any problem. Awaiting yr. remedial suggestion on this to make use of IDM always.

    • says

      Hi Viswanath,

      I suggest you, To check out the APPDATA folder once after you uninstalled the IDM. and also do restart the PC/laptop whenever it prompted. Try to remove the temporary files too before reinstalling the IDM.

      and While installing the software disconnect your wifi/internet and install and don’t forget to change the settings in the Hosts file. This prevents the software from connecting to the internet for updates and from validating the keys we used.

      Even I used to face the same issue, “Exiting” trial period over. But it will work if we follow the procedure I mentioned here

      Thanks for reaching me. Hope this helps you.

      Have a great day Viswanath.

    Whooaa! Thanks a lot man. Other blogs didn’t work on my pc, but yours did, I really appreciate your work. Thanks ! 🙂

  23. Aman sharma says

    Hello, i tried all your steps in sequence they are mentioned, but still my Serial number problem is not resolved. Moreover as soon as the IDM was installed again, it showed “your 30 days trial period is over”. So is it natural, or its because some of the previous files were not deleted. Plz help me out,i have tried every possible way…..

    • says

      Hello Aman,

      it’s normal to see that notification saying 30 day trial period over. We need to make sure that we cleared all the old files and app data in order to make this work.

      Thanks for your comment i’ll try to make a video soon and i’ll update it in the post.
