"Use Caution!"

February 16, 2011  |  By kingdonking

 |  Version: Vipre Antivirus Premium 4.0

Pros

Great little program - it caught what others missed.

Cons

Be very cautious using Auto Protection. It can wipe out legitimate, necessary .exe files when you are downloading them or transferring them between drives. I have had problems with the program blocking driver files for printers, motherboards, etc.

Summary

For everyday protection, this is the best program I've used thus far. It hasn't slowed down my system at all so far as I can tell. Installation was easy. Just be careful using the Active Protection function. It certainly is worth the money.

"Great Product...Great Customer Service!"

August 24, 2010  |  By dgirl23

 |  Version: Vipre Antivirus Premium 4.0

Pros

Fast, effective, unobtrusive.

Cons

From time to time I'm not able to download the definition updates on the first try, resulting in doing a manual download.But it hasn't been a big enough problem to contact customer service about.

Summary

This product does what it's supposed to do without hogging our computers' resources. It's fast and works flawlessly behind the scenes to keep our three computers safe. I have had a couple of occasions where I've contacted customer service, and their response to my questions has been prompt, courteous, and helpful. I've tried a number of internet security suites, and Vipre Premium is the one I'm sticking with.

"Great Protection Without Sacrificing Performance"

June 21, 2010  |  By SeeBeeEss

 |  Version: Vipre Antivirus Premium 4.0

Pros

Excellent antivirus, solid firewall, negligible performance hit, inexpensive.

Cons

Lacking some of the features of other suites such as parental controls if that is important to you. Truth is that lack of some of the questionable, "everything but the kitchen sink" features found in other suites may explain the better performance.

Summary

For the past 6 months, I have been trying to find a full security suite that did not bring my system (Quad core processor, 4 GB Ram, Windows 7) to its knees. I had been trying to find something to replace Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 which provided solid protection along with serious system performance degradation and poor customer support. I tried Comodo, AVG, Zone Alarm and others, all of which came with a significant performance hit and other irritants. I was ready to give up and concede that the cost of using a security suite was slow boots, sluggish web browsing, time-consuming program launches and mind-numbing scans. However Vipre Antivirus Premium 4 proved that a security suite can be effective without negatively impacting your system's performance. Vipre Antivirus Premium 4 does its job quietly and efficiently and it costs much less than most of the overrated security suites I have tried ($39 for single user or $69 for unlimited 'home license' [all of the PC's in your home]). An impressive product!

"Don't download this program!!!!"

June 15, 2010  |  By mek8630

 |  Version: Vipre Antivirus Premium 4.0

Pros

It seemed to be a decent anti-virus at first and it does use very low system resources.

Cons

Couldn't uninstall it, I had to manually uninstall it by deleting every file that I could find in the computer, THEN almost anything I would click on SOME HOW it would try and reinstall itself. My computer hasn't been acting the same ever since.

Summary

My computer still isn't acting right and the whole reason I wanted to uninstall it was because it kept acting up and not allowing my computer to access the internet because of the firewall. I had a VERY hard time getting rid of it and I would NEVER attempt to install it again.

Updated on Oct 3, 2010

Vipre anti-virus is crap. After I finally got rid of it completely off my computer, well I still had the installation file downloaded and it literally tried to install itself without permission. I have never seen anything like that happen before, so I wouldn't ever mess with Vipre ever again. At first everything seemed to be ok with it, but I started noticing things. I don't have any other problems with the computer as I am a computer technician and would have found something wrong. I was giving the review for people that may not know as much and would be paying someone like me to get it off their computer. I suggest using Avast anti-virus even the free version is great. Also I did find out ONE of the reasons why Vipre was giving me problems, it was because my system's clock got changed but even after changing the time back to where it was originally, vipre still caused problems. I still would suggest people staying away from it to avoid the headaches.

"Best AV I have ever used"

March 07, 2010  |  By jhwilen

 |  Version: Vipre Antivirus Premium 4.0

Pros

The firewall is best I have ever used. Every other AV Suite I have used, the firewall conflicts with MS Outlook's junk email filter, VIPRE's does not!

Cons

Can't find any at this time.

Summary

This product catches malware and trojan's my other AV did not. The GUI is easiest I have ever used. The firewall has two settings, a simple mode and a learning mode - one that runs quietly in the background and the other for more advanced users. This company has a fast response time by email as they 100% U.S. based. There tech support is quick to response by via email and through their user forums. You can reach customer service by phone and their customer service staff are quick to respond back by email. Sunbelt is the most ethical and honorable AV company I have ever dealt with.
