My Thoughts on UnThreat Free AntiVirus 2014
I found UnThreat Free AntiVirus 2014 really easy to use. The program layout isn’t hard to grasp and it’s easy to scan files and folders from the right-click context menu.
Outbound emails that UnThreat scans are marked with a message that says they were scanned with the antivirus program. You can remove this from the Email Protection options in the settings.
Something I didn’t like about UnThreat is that a large advertisement is always present at the bottom of the program that you can’t minimize or exit.
