    "It's awesome. It rocks."

    January 9, 2009  |   By mkeswani

    Version: Vipre Antivirus + Antispyware 3.1.2315

    Pros

    Easier to use than the rest - don't have to do anything. Doesn't offer hundreds of config options. Is for home users. Not over taking over windows like norton. Not in your face all the time. It works. It detects stuff.

    Cons

    Cookie. Tracking cookies. I don't care about the cookies. Everyday with the cookies - daily scan.

    Summary

    I bought it before trying it out. I've been using all the freeware anti virus apps for so long, I knew vipre was going to be the one. I am not surprised by it's performance. It is expected. Just like you've always been expecting your antivirus to be. It overrules avira, avg, avast, nod, norton (everything overrules norton), bit defender? Come on, no one left. Kaspersky - it's heavy. Vipre - he's not heavy, he's my brother.

    "Almost Unbeatable"

    December 19, 2008  |   By MrPink1975

    Version: Vipre Antivirus + Antispyware 3.1.2315

    Pros

    Very light on your system , Very fast scans , and a great tool set . Vipre is also very user friendly .

    Cons

    Absolutely none . Does exactly what it's supposed to do and then some .

    Summary

    I've used lots of anti-virus software and this is in a tie for 1st with ESET-NOD 32 . Both are very effective , very fast , and very light on your system . Vipre is just a little bit lighter and has a great tool set . Simply put , it's awesome !!!

    "It isn't what they say it is"

    December 12, 2008  |   By purigen

    Version: Vipre Antivirus + Antispyware 3.1.2315

    Pros

    I liked what I heard and the way it looks

    Cons

    Once I enabled active protection my PC slowed to a crawl. I started with the recommended setting (medium) and hardly anything worked, them I went to low which just made everything work real slow.

    Summary

    It's a big let down from all that I read about it

    "CPU hog & User Interface dumbed down"

    October 22, 2008  |   By jkoerner

    Version: Vipre Antivirus + Antispyware 3.1.2315

    Pros

    Cool name. Bravo to Marketing dept. WIsh same could be said of engineering dept.

    Cons

    Periodically goes nuts and grabs 90-99% of CPU cycles.

    Summary

    User interface has been "dumbed down" with no option for advanced users to control it. Too early to know how effective it is - no empirical data yet from independent testing labs. Sunbelt's recent track record on fixing known, serious problems is not good. Sad to see a formerly good company go downhill.

    "Outruns All competition used to date!"

    October 12, 2008  |   By davidlewis7

    Version: Vipre Antivirus + Antispyware 3.1.2315

    Pros

    Vipre is thorough and affords you excellent full-time coverage at a very afford>able price. Tried the "best"; Norton, Windows One Care, Windows Defender, F-secure. No one and nothing else does the job this program does, or loads up your HD less.

    Cons

    Still waitng to find ONE. Ran the trial and liked it So well, I am now a subscriber. I personally have never run anything else like it, not even close.

    Summary

    IF you've been looking for a comprehensive anti-virus/ spyware program that you can count on to get the job totally done and not steal precious resources, this IS the one you've been looking for! Took it for a spin at the advice of CNET's editor ("Picks of the Week") and it was the greatest improvement since the inception of solid state circuitry!
