Orbit Downloader known for downloading, video, music, and streaming media from Myspace, YouTube, Imeem, Pandora, Rapidshare, support RTMP contains Adware.
I recently did a scan on my computer using Microsoft's Security Essentials, when I received an alert. It stated that Adware:Win32/Open Candy was detected, the alert level was low, status active, and the recommended action was to remove.
So what's funny is that Orbit Downloader has Awards from websites like Softpedia, Baixaki, Nota Softonic, Vist Files, ITshareware, Download.HR all stating that it's adware, spyware, and virus free. Well I care to differ.
Do not download Orbit Downloader, unless you are interested in some adware.
