I've been using FDM very happily for a while now. Recently, I reinstalled Windows 7 after trying the Windows 8 CP, and since then I've had a similar "file not found" issue.
I have a premium Rapidshare account, and have entered my login credentials into FDM's site manager (using rapidshare.com). I can download from Rapidshare using IE9's download manager with no problems, but with FDM I get the following type of error (short log only to exclude login info):
2:58:42 PM 1/04/2012 Opening file on the disk...
2:58:42 PM 1/04/2012 File not found
2:58:42 PM 1/04/2012 Stopped
Interestingly, I get the same error when trying to download the latest FDM version from this site:

I've tried fiddling with specific settings, including trying both version 3.0 and the latest 3.8 version to no avail, but unfortunately I'm not tech-savvy enough to know what I'm doing! Does anyone have any suggestions?
