  6. Tip of the Day Many people think that 'formatting' a hard drive will wipe out all the data so it cannot be recovered
    Not so. To prevent the possibility of future recovery, use a third-party, low-level hard drive formatting tool, such as Killdisk (downloadable at no charge from www.killdisk.com) to overwrite data on the hard drive with a random sequence of 1's and 0's.

    Like the F-Secure video Unthreat did fairly well in the links portion of the test. Although it failed detection. If I were running the test I would fail Unthreat in the Zero-Day malware detection portion (when you run the malware). Yet again good test.

    @ MalwareDoctor nice work thank you, If I could give you 5 Kudos I would
    Unthreat is a nice program but its not got great detection or prevention.

    It seems like most of these products tend to do unusually well in the zero day portion of my test(maybe it's time I locate a new source of links :p). Any person watching the test would see how bad it performed in the second portion of the review, so hopefully most of the viewers could interpret the results for themselves if I didn't exactly spell it out.

    Thanks for the suggestion and have a good day/evening :D

    Thanks. But with this product, installing a better pure av(meaning signature-based detection only) and add all that other good stuff with it would probably would offer the best security. :D

    UnThreat AV had some relation with spammy ppl or something like that. I would not recommend this product. Anyway it is using Vipres Engines so how come such a pathetic display? Are they using an older version.

    No, UnThreat (an already new and small company) were bought out by the spammy people. There is a difference. :p

    @WhiteNobster: Thanks and that would be wise except maybe in a vm for testing. ;)
    @Tobi: From what I heard a long time ago UnThreat was an abandoned project(still in 2012 version). But now since they released a new version, it is not hard to believe they were bought out by another company. I am curious though have you received spam or see an example online from them spamming, because I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary on their website.
    @malbky: If Unthreat does use Vipre's engine, that explains why the results are very similar. Both products did great in the web portion of my test, but failed in the zero day(the only main difference is UnThreat allowed a rogue av to execute).

    Hey Doctor!
    thanks for the review, I've actually been using the 2012 version and have been quite happy with it.. have you tried the new version yet?
    what would recommend pairing with unthreat to get the best protection?

    You could use EXE Radar Free which is an anti-executable:

    I feel that is a catch-22. You will not get the best protection with UnThreat as the main av. Personally at this time I would stick with CIS(not the beta version). I have not released(nor do I plan to release at this time)a review on the current version. However another tester here on the forums by the name of Biozfear has released several good Comodo test videos, you should check them out if you want to get a feel for the product.
