How to by pass Megaupload premium limit and get unlimited download

Megaupload has limited the number of download slots available to several countries. Only a few countries like USA, UK etc have unlimited access. The rest will either have to buy the premium account, or install the Alexa toolbar, which is a spyware. So here is a small registry fix that can help you solve this problem and you can get unlimited download using internet explorer.

Step 1: Open the run command from the start menu and type: regedit and press Enter

Step 2: Navigate to [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOW$\CurrentVersionInternet Settings\5.0\User Agent\Post Platform]

Those using IE 7 will have to use this:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOW$\CurrentVersionInternet Settings\User Agent\Post Platform]

Step 3: Right click into Post Platform and choose New-> String Value and name it: "Alexa Toolbar" and press enter.

Step 4: Close registry editor and restart the computer.

Now you can use internet explorer to get unlimited downloads from Megaupload.

There is also a fix for Firefox, but I haven’t tested it just yet, when I do, I will post it here.

Thanks xboy for the great tutorial.
