I have Windows Live One Care (free trial) and it says that i have a threat to my computer everytime i power on. It says I have a Trojan Downloader: Win32/Orbitel, and I have supposedly cleaned it but it still keeps popping up saying it is still there and is still a threat. How do I get rid of it and is this dnagerous?

IS Orbitel (Colombia) Your ISP?

Orbitel is/was apparently the largest ISP in Colombia S.A.

IF not your ISP then try Task Mgr. to see if is running and disable it from tasks then re-try removal. OR

Try running removal from Safe Mode. If these still haven't got it try looking in you start folder or possibly auto run folders to see if there. Also look in Add/Delete programs to see if installed & can be un-installed there.Does 1 Care not give /show the path to it's location?

Depending how long it's been there, it could also be in system restore files (aka System Volume)and could re-infect from there if you restore to a contaminated date. IF shown there, you'll need to dump restore points.

Try installing & Updating & running MBAM.exe &/or SAS links & instructions in following link:

I,myself, don't consider 1 Care to be the be all & end all of protections. Post back if need more help as there are others more knowledgeable & other thing to try. Thanks. Happy

I don't see Win32/Orbitel on their database

You might want to manually update the database of OneCare then run another scan.

If it continue to find Ortibel as threat, please report to Microsoft for false positive so they can check it further:

Also, scan using online scanner if you don't want to install anti-malware (but recommended to have on-demand scanner)

Please try to delete all the temporary files like temp, %temp% and prefetch files from your computer.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
