Spotted at CoU that Avira is now including Uniblue advertisements(Installers Hall of Shame (Unwanted add-on) - Calendar Of Updates - Page 19). The post at CoU links to these topics:

Uniblue proudly displays the Microsoft Partner log. Don't ever let that give the impression that a vendor has any close relationship with Microsoft. There is no vetting to become a registered Microsoft partner. All it means is that the company employs the requisite number of certified professionals and has completed the registration process, nothing more.
