You are now using KGet

KGet doesn't ask, but it should automatically resume a download started with KGet.

If you don't want KGet to be used automatically, open KGet and open the "Settings => 
Configure KGet" configuration widget.  Under the: "Advanced" tab and uncheck: "Enable the 
integration with Konqueror".

If you continue to use KGet, use it to resume a download.  There should be an icon in the 
system tray to open it, select the file you want to resume and click the "Resume" button 
on the left end of the tool bar.  DO NOT go to the site and down load again.

To get the individual window, double click the selection in KGet.  Then if you want the 
progress icon in the system tray, you can still click the: "Dock" button.
