Downloading from 4Shared – Which button to Use

I know 4Shared is very confusing as to which “download” button to use, for the quick pages I post. I too get aggravated with it. Sooner or later I’ll have to sit down a find another site to use, but until then here is a bit of information that should help.

The file name will always be at the top right under the 4Shared banner, as you can see here. It’s tempting to click on the large blue button since it is right underneath the file name, however that is not the button for the file. This is a tricky site and they set up their advertisers download buttons in very strategic places.

The download button for the file is under the smaller file name beneath the top Advertisement. I have put a red dashed square around the correct download button. This and only this button is for the file.

I hope this clears up some of the confusion, I too have clicked on the incorrect download and my virus/adware protector goes crazy. However clicking on the correct download does not create or download any of the dreadful adware on your system.

    I don't think so, I know you have to create an account if you're going to upload and store files.

    Do you have to create an account with them to be able to download files?
