    "PHENOMENAL!!!"

    January 24, 2014  |   By LoveKittyAlways

    Version: Vipre Antivirus 2013 6.1.5493

    Pros

    100% Protection!

    Cons

    None in the year I've used it.

    Summary

    Vipre has been perfect for me! After getting fed up with multiple system infections & failures & a myriad of faulty protection software over the decades I went with Vipre and have not looked back, in fact I feel safer than ever. I surf the internet abroad & where I would have caught a bug, or two or ten Vipre has protected my system. Even where there are sneaky, random, multiple pop-ups on some discreet place on some programs & sites Vipre has effectively protected my system 100%. It puts a warning message up like a little shield to let me know exactly where the offense is. I have had no problems in the time I have used it & my 1 yr old computer runs optimally all the time. I was like wow a lot of times & felt like I got a great deal. There was a few times that I had trouble accessing some sites I thought were safe but what I had to do was learn how to use the software and it was easy. I found the sites I thought were safe actually weren't. I look at all the risks Vipre has protected me from & the 100% satisfaction I've had since I got it & I compare that to the malware/bad protection/broken system fraught past I've endured and I am very impressed. I think one should learn how to use their equipment & confirm actual problems before crying foul & also know that some corrupt files can't be saved. I have not tried to uninstall it yet but I hope I won't ever have to! Thank you Vipre for finallly making it safe for me to surf worry-free!

    "Does what it is supposed to without slowdown"

    November 14, 2013  |   By fartknocker1987

    Version: Vipre Antivirus 2013 6.1.5493

    Pros

    -Reliable and very effective
    -No processing slowdown
    -Updates frequently and swiftly
    - Minimally invasive to the fullest and efficient extent
    - 24 hour online help line

    Cons

    - To be quite frank with you there is not much to complain about when it comes to this top class AV.

    Summary

    My experience with other types of AV's is that they simply do not deliver and on top of it they usually slow down your computer with annoying ad's and sluggish software that would usually never get the job done. I have used kaspersky , Mcafee , Norton, AVG and all the other junk that's out there and will say that this AV delivers. GFI has done a great job with this minimally invasive pro active AV and for over 3 years it has literally kept all my computers running perfect with no virus issues. It will not be as useful trying to install onto an already super dirty computer but it sure as hell keeps things clean and protects better than any AV I have ever used.

    -trusted Anti-virus Engine
    -complete suit with AV,2 way firewall, IDS, and HIPS
    -Lifetime license w/c is other's dont have :D

    Summary

    Vipre is well-known a good antispyware software since it released counterspy which receive many good reviews, i thought its a joke that this AV is light on system resources but i my friend recommend it to me and i was really amazed as a fact it can run on a old school pc, Vipre definitely the best AV for me, IMHO

    "Quality Software That AMAZES!"

    September 23, 2013  |   By Andyc_84

    Version: Vipre Antivirus 2013 6.1.5493

    Pros

    Removed my old anti virus on install, The Web Filtering option, The Patching Component and just how light weight this is makes this product an essential component to my household computers.
    You can get as much or as little as you want out of this product. With the manage section of this software being easy for someone not so tech savvy or advanced options for those with a little more know-how.

    Cons

    The price could be a little cheaper. Then again I guess you pay a little more for quality

    Summary

    As said in title I can't believe I am saying this but yes software has amazed me! It's really great to see how far AV has come in the last few years and owning VIPRE has demonstrated this plus more!

    "LOVE IT! Fast! Low Resource usage. Highly Recommend!"

    August 29, 2013  |   By LDSnPCGeekMom

    Version: Vipre Antivirus 2013 6.1.5493

    Pros

    I purchased Vipre in February 2013 installed it and it works great. It also uses less resources than my 2011 BitDefender and has worked great. My two and half year old Acer is running just great. I have had 1 problem (listed below) in 8 months of use. It has never crashed nor frozen. I think it is a good buy.

    Cons

    Once it blocked a so called "known bad file" called backstage.htm(Toolbar) which I found was connected with my remote desktop that I use with our software business and just added it to the "Always Allowed". I checked to be sure it wasn't some new virus with our programmer. Since there is no adware/malware cleaner with it I recommend an adware/malware product to use with this. I use SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition. I have also purchased and used Malwarebytes but didn't like the hassle it started giving me with with locking my computer up.

    Summary

    I installed Vipre on my Acer Aspire 7741 after using BitDefender 2011 for 2 years. BitDefender 2013 would not install on my Acer and the techs at BitDefender tried all sorts of thing all to no avail. I have been on computers for over 20 yrs from building them in the late 80's to programming DOS and also helping run our family municipal accounting software company so now I recommend it to our customers and others that ask. It caught several that Avast free version had not caught when I was using it until my Vipre was purchased.

    "Absolute Junk"

    August 17, 2013  |   By Maverick_Wolfe

    Version: Vipre Antivirus 2013 6.1.5493

    Pros

    See my Review for Vipre IS

    Cons

    See my review for Vipre IS I can't give this trash less than a half star.

    Summary

    This software DELETES stuff and will NOT restore it to either your Hard drive OR your cloud drives if you have a cloud drive.... I was so angry when I found this out... Stuff I've vetted with other programs as safe, and other programs KNOW they're safe as they were mostly game trainers for going through games when I've already been through them with no issues, or other files that absolutely had ZERO viruses or trojans in them, some of those files I'd paid for and were the only copies I had left as I deleted them a long time ago from their original source. most of which can not be gotten again because they are no longer offered and the new versions without the original require a new paid version without your original key file or Just can't be retrieved because the Development company either went out of buisness or got absorbed by another company because they sold and after a while the company stopped making the software but not patching it.

    "Won't bother with this product again!"

    June 23, 2013  |   By DemonHuntress29

    Version: Vipre Antivirus 2013 6.1.5493

    Pros

    Nice logo...

    Cons

    There is no uninstall for this product, at least not one that I could find in the folder or online except through one place & that didn't even work. This program blocked sites that I knew were safe, and a lot of the time, it would also block safe downloads as well.

    Summary

    Not worth the time of installing it or frustration of uninstalling it afterwards
