Orbit downloader - A bad idea Sep 16, 2013

Dear Danesh,

For most browser you can setup Orbit to overtake the download functions, redirect downloads to a specific folder etc. All this is done by the SETTINGS/OPTIONS menu (Can't recall).

However, i'd like to mention that Orbit is not a safe software to use as it has a Trojan horse included which uses part of your bandwidth to do DDOS attacks on other people's computers and other things.

I know better as it used to be my standard downloader/video grabber

Since i removed it my PC got a bit faster too (Around 5/10% faster than it was before) and my Ping has gone down too, which means something did was wrong.

Regards

Enrico

Don't use such things if you are not familiar with Internet, software and the related pros & cons. Sep 16, 2013

Don't use third-party file hosters. They might offer malware-infiltrated software.

Don't install any software that doesn't not provide true andvantages for your work. Any modern browser is able to download files very fast.

In the first place, google for the name of a software. A search for "Orbit downloader" yields alarming results.

I can only confirm what the other colleagues have written Sep 16, 2013

Nowadays you have to watch like a hawk to make sure even useful, previously trustworthy software isn't trying to load something you don't want on your computer. This has become an increasingly widespread annoyance, with even big names like Adobe Acrobat pulling this nonsense, especially with browser add-ons no one needs. Make no mistake, this is all to sell browsing behavior statistics for marketing dollars, and sometimes worse purposes (NSA, anyone?), as Orbit seems to do. One cannot be too careful these days: Make sure your computer works for YOU, and not anyone else in the background.

None. I use my own common sense judgment and download Sep 16, 2013

anything I want or need manually. However, feel free to do your own research here:
