This is probably not even a real antivirus. Most likely some rogue/fake crap, like "antivirus gold", spyaxe,etc

It's real. It uses Sunbelt engine.

This means nothing if they stolen the interface from avast/AVG.
Will you trust in a company with such policy? I won't for sure.

Unthreat is making themselfs look bad by not coming up with their own interface that doesn't look like any other antivirus's interface...

If there using Sunbelts engine, are they also using Sunbelts Definitions or their own because that doesn't make any sense if there using Sunbelts since they scored lower than Avast and Unthreat scored higher than both Avast! and Sunbelt.

For me, their forum says it all...only 1 thread, with over 480 posts by the same person, all spam.

I would say it's the ideal AV and support forum for an old banned friend of us ;D

No I don't mean that. I was just saying that its not a rouge ware. Its a company with a good antivirus and a very very cheap marketing people....

Oh wow, I thought you were exaggerating but they copied the tabs completely, and the help and settings icons are in the same place. I think it's still different enough that a lawsuit couldn't be filed unfortunately.

Did they stole the engine from any other antivirus?
Or the virus definitions?
Why would they stop only stealing the interface?
