Fix IDM Fake Serial Number Using Hosts File
You can also fix IDM fake serial number problem by editing the Hosts file. If you don’t know about this file, then let me tell you a little bit about this file first. Hosts File is basically a Windows file which is used by operating system to map hostnames to IP addresses. This file can be opened in Text Editor like Notepad, and you can edit it according to your needs too, but changing anything it in without knowing consequences can lead to system failure or apps crashes, so you should not edit it accordingly.

  • First of all you have to end running background process of Internet Download Manager using Task Manager.

  • Now navigate to – C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts.

  • You will find 5 files in that folder. You have to right click on Hosts file and open it with notepad.
