This great prank makes it appear as though an "unwanted" file is being downloaded from the Internet. DownHoax randomly chooses a site from its internal database of "undesirables" and proceeds to simulate downloading an equally distasteful file. DownHoax looks just like the Internet Explorer download dialog! You are unable to cancel or stop this program, if you try it will simply restart the download process.
You can also specify the transfer rate that DownHoax uses when displaying the fake download screen.
