i've searched on how to catch IE click to create the "download manager program".
but found only little information on this topic.

in IE 5.5 or later, it has IDownloadManager, so we can used it.
but for IE version before 5.5, what is the best way to catch the click?

i've found that "Star downloader" used "Browser Helper Object", but getright used "Name-Space Protocals Hanlder" installed under registry HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\PROTOCOLS\Name-Space Handler\http and also ftp.

i can not find the information about that regsitry key. information from some sources from internet say that it's "APPs - Asychronous Plugable Protocols".

which one is better between BHO and APPs (if i'm correct that it's APP)?
Anyone can made me clear about this or point out where to get the information.

thank you.

Browser helper objects (aka browser companion objects) are currently becoming much maligned by a public overwhelmed with spyware. If there's any other way of catching the click, try it first. Anti's are starting to watch for bco's and flag them as potentially intrusive or even malicious, so if your project is commercial, I would steer well clear of the bco method.
