Software Product Description

This software emulates internet activity, keeping any internet connection alive. This can be very useful for dialup users, who will automatically get disconnected after a period of inactivity. Originally designed for cellphone dialup use, but can be used with any dialup or broadband connection, which times out after a period of time.

Keep Alive automatically browses to a designated web page located on PGH Design's server every ten seconds, therefore keeping a live connection on port 80, and fooling the connection into thinking you are browsing the web. This program can especially be useful while downloading large files, to allow for unattended download without the risk of disconnect and loss of the download. Program's ease of use and very little resources required makes it a perfect solution for users with even the slowest systems. Just launch the program, minimize it, and it will unobtrusively sit in your system tray until shut down (green light will indicate the program is running and performing its task).

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Saw this, thought it was good,then saw the review fom another user.Will download and try and post comments.
What it means dear reviewer; is that it 'keeps alive' your Broadband or dial up connection, that usually stops or times out after a peoriod.Either your ISP cuts you off because your downloading too much for their server to handle.As you must go through your ISP's server to get to the net and browse,download etc...
It probably is like another software which pings and keeps the connection active.(Inetbooster I think it is...except that software supposedly directs your PC to another site...check this with Startup Mechanic 2.7/8).
