    Does anyone have information on indianantivirus.com. Seems like I get redirected going to their website. They have another site -http://www.netprotector.co.in which seems to work.

    Any one have recent practical experience with their product Net Protector AV?

    Seems like a fraudulent website. Most possibly a rogue AV.

    @Arin, Yeah it is a rouge AV (...or breed of something close to it, anyways).

    We had a discussion on this rouge a couple months ago if you are interested in reading it. Though if you're getting redirects, then wouldn't you suspect that to be a bad thing? After all, the redirect contains a very suspicious script as I had gotten an Avast alert back then. You don't ever want to post direct links to suspicious sites.

    Unfortunately, Wilders hosts a few clickers. ;)

    But yeah, the site is bad and it is recommended to steer clear of their dirty tricks.

    It's not exactly rogue but let's say it's not a professionally developed product.

    See this:

    There's also this little tidbit on their website in the About Us section about one of their directors:

    While that is laudable, it does smack a little of unprofessionalism. In business, work defines your merit, not academics! :)

    You are right, it's not a rogue, but just one of a number of lesser known antivirus products with poor detection rates, making it pretty much worthless imo.
