Make Orbit Downloader Automatically Scan Downloaded Files for Viruses

The Orbit Downloader application has a special feature which, when enabled, automatically initializes the installed anti-virus program and scans the downloaded files for viruses. With the help of this feature, you, as an end-user, can stay relaxed and assured that any file that you are downloading from the Internet would remain virus free.

When the downloaded files are scanned for the viruses, in case any of the downloaded file contains any virus, as per the efficiency of the installed anti-virus program, the infected file is either cleaned or it is removed from the computer permanently.

Although you might find it difficult to download the files as many of them would be automatically removed due to this automated scanning process, this approach ensures that your system remains free from viruses and/or other harmful and malicious elements that might be downloaded along with the source files.
