Bypass Megaupload country slot limit without toolbar, extension

Internet users who live in a country outside the United States would usually get limited country slot error when trying to download files from Mega upload. Mega upload requires the visitors to install the Alexa tool bar to proceed downloading and it will be quite troublesome if we’re using public computer or prefer not to install information gathering software like the Alexa Tool bar. There are several ways to solve this either by using US based proxy or by applying some tweaks to your computer/internet browser which is the most effective method this time. Those tweaks are:

Mozilla Firefox tweak:

1. Go to address bar and type about:config . Press enter

2. Look for general.useragent.extra.firefox using the filter and double click on it

3. Change the default text with this: Firefox/ MEGAUPLOAD 1.0

Windows Registry tweak (for Internet Explorer 7 and Internet Explorer 6):

1. Open run in the start menu and type regedit. Press enter.

2. in Registry Editor window, go to [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Setting\5.0\User Agent\Post Platform]

3. Right click on ‘Post Platform’ and add new string value. Enter “Alexa Toolbar”. Save the registry and restart your computer.

Note: For IE 7.0 the “Post Platform” will be located at:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mcft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\User Agent\Post Platform]

I have Tested it and working. Just try this trick
