    Not for me. I never have used sunbelt.

    I never use sunbelt either but it turned out it comes with the antivirus.

    I didn't realize Unthreat came with a firewall. Regardless, I hope they get this issue fixed. I'm anxious to try this program out.

    I presume that the paid version unlocks the firewall.

    Can't you just disable the FW driver ?

    The odd thing is, I tested this AV against malware in a Win7-64bit VM a while back. No crashes then. But on my production machine, it will not work.

    UnThreat uses the Vipre AV engine which is GFI's product who acquired Sunbelt Software.

    A colleague of mine suffered the same fate with Win 7 64 bit using Comodo's firewall.
    I suggest a minidump file should be sent to UnThreat to point out the issue/s.

    So the paid version of Unthreat uses Vipre for antivirus and also the Sunbelt/GFI firewall? Is that right?

    This works surprisingly well on-demand. Just disable protection, and shutdown from task bar after using.

    What is this Unthreat Service Manager though? Can't seem to disable it normally.

    Unthreat leftovers after uninstalling with revo, and manually cleaning reg entries and assorted drivers and services. There is nothing i can find in local area connection properties either. This is on W7

    Im no network geek...anyone have an idea on how to get rid of this?
    Oh...it was the free version.
    Also...i am the @#$@ administrator!

    Edit: My bad for forgetting that my first try out involved mistakenly installing the trial version. After uninstalling that and manually cleaning up i reinstalled the free version.

    Comodo, Avira, GesWall, Unthreat AV and finally Revo for uninstalling an AV.Complete disaster.

    I dont know why "Comodo, Avira, GesWall" are relevant, but ya...the disaster part is accurate.
    Anything helpful to add as far as getting rid of road warrior?
    Silly question i guess...

    Real system didn't fare as well as virtual, with BSOD at logon. Had to restore to recent disk image.

    What Tarantula meant was that is normal to have a disaster with so many security software installed on your PC (better if it was a virtual machine).Next time try to use at least something like Rollback (paid) or Comodo Time Machine (free) instant recovery software.This way you'll have the possibility to try different security software and to restore a clean snapshot of your PC anytime you want.

    When i installed Unthreat all i had was Geswall and Comodo fw only...
    I had uninstalled Avira in preparation for the grand experiment.
    "so many security software"o_O

    I do keep bu images (paragon), and its not an issue anyways as my comp is running fine. I just dont like that network related crap (road whatever) hanging on. The main point i want to get across is the garbage this leaves behind even after revo uninstaller, and a thorough manual cleanup...i found 2 more drivers last night that i missed...and trying to fix this RoadW abortion.

    Simply delete RoadWarrior from Network Connections.

    Looks like they released a new version (minor update), but I still get the boot issues with it. Anyone find a fix for that yet?

    The built-in uninstaller works just fine.Removes Road Warrior too.Revo is not suitable for removing security software.
