I discovered this software on the Cnet website recently, and given it's scores and reviews, have installed it on my computers and replacing Avast for the time being. I don't see a lot of reviews yet on this, but it seems like a very good choice so far. Very simple and clean interface, automatic updates, and extremely user friendly. Has anyone else here given this a try? I would love to hear some feedback, thanks.

It appears to be a decent application.

UnThreat uses the popular, well-received VIPRE antivirus engine…

 

I recommend using this download link though. To avoid 3rd party installers.

You always have to be careful using CNET and similar reputable download hosting sites because they use heavy and confusing advertising with download links. Clicking on the incorrect link (thinking its the one you want) often results in downloading a program the user did not intend to download. As boopme notes, the safest practice is to use the vendor's home site but in some cases, they too will redirect you to another hosting site which contains advertisements that can be confusing.
