I'm reading it now!

Not only it contains, as explicitly stated, the adware OpenCandy, but ESET says in this article that, in versions 4.1.1.14 and 4.1.1.15 released on December 2012, the file orbitdm.exe was added to Orbit Downloader: it downloads from Orbit servers a DLL library which gets a list of websites against which launch DDoS attacks!

This is how to remove software updater

Comment by Flint about Orbit Downloader Aug 2011

About that Software Updater, it's not that hard at all to remove it. Just delete "SoftUpdater.dll" in the folder where you install Orbit Downloader but do it while Orbit isn't running and relaunch the program. You'll see the software updater is now gone from Orbit Downloader

Comment by mistaecko about Orbit Downloader Jan 2011

Now includes a new component, 'Software Updater', that scans your PC for installed software, reports the software to the server, and then presents a list of outdated software and links to download the most recent versions.

The 'Software Updater' is integrated into the main program UI and can neither be disabled or uninstalled.

McAfee SiteAdvisor flags the website red, but doesn't specify the reason. Maybe its privacy concerns due to the newly introduced component?

Comment by ajdbarros about Orbit Downloader Feb 2011

Not only manages downloads, but in some way makes them way quicker than normal. Highly recommended, despite the updater that you cannot get rid of.

I like that updater, but still lack of accuracy. =_="

Comment by mistaecko about Orbit Downloader Feb 2011

Like most other download managers Orbit uses multiple connections to the server per download/file to achieve faster downloads. No magic here.

Has some quirks, but for those of us looking for a somewhat portable app, this compared to FDM leaves less traces in the registry.

Newest update really pushes Internet Explorer. IE is integrated into the operating system and presents numerous security flaws. Do Not Use Internet Explorer. Get Firefox of Google Chrome.
