I have a niggle that you are probably using the ISP offered stuff, DONT

  Firstly use something like OpenDNS to help stop rubbish, then use a good system like Opera, Google Chrome etc and they provide the system for downloads. The stuff then gets put in a file called downloads. The server suppliers do not want problems so the downloaders that they use rarely cause concern.

 Incidently do be careful if you think of doing windows 10. You need another computer to evaluate and discover work arounds if you have problems. Most French computer places have problems anyway with English and when fault conditions occur the English is somewhat peculiar. 10 is very good but it is not for the faint hearted. None of my extended family could cope with the shenanigans.

There is absolutely no need for a download manager if you are downloading legitamate content.
