"Fast but not so good"

April 09, 2011  |  By smilin-buddha

 |  Version: Vipre Antivirus Premium 4.0.3904

Pros

Barely notice it working.

Cons

. Laptop was running slow. Used MSE to find that Vipre had missed a trojan and two rogues. Vipre could not even find these in safe mode. Their customer service said that they did not have a issue with Vipre since MSE found the problems

Summary

Off to look for a better antivirus and stop drinking the Kool Aid

"Good Protection Hardly Know its Running"

January 23, 2011  |  By philipfm

 |  Version: Vipre Antivirus Premium 4.0.3904

Pros

Easy install Automatic updates and scans even in stand by mode. Fast quick scans. It it wasn't for automatic update notifications you would forget you even have it.

Cons

Slow full scans but I expect that. On occasion it will block some web pages or Facebook apps without giving out much info.

Summary

I am using this on 3 XP and one 7 machine. haven't had any problems yet with the program or computer viruses. I really like this software after trying just about all the free to downloads on Facebook.

"The Best Out There"

January 08, 2011  |  By ronlee031762

 |  Version: Vipre Antivirus Premium 4.0.3904

Pros

Light on the hard drive, updates frequently, starts-up fast, awesome looking interface, excellent at detecting and blocking, and best of all--the double firewall.

Cons

None so far.

Summary

Vipre in my consideration is the best. I've used Avast Pro, Kaspersky's IS 2011, Webroot Essentials, AVG Security Suite 2011, Avira Personal, Comodo Internet Security, Ad-Aware 9.0, and Panda Cloud. All of the above are are either hogs, to slow, over rated, or not worth a crap. Vipre works very well with my system (Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit). I not sure what some of the other reviews talk about it being slow, it isn't at all. I did a deep scan including my archives, It 1 hour and 45 minutes. If a person does weekly system cleaning, there should be no problems with any system. I give Vipre Antivirus Premium an A+

Since my last up-date I have purchased this product. It works great. I put Vipre to my own test and found the detection rate to be excellent. I found seven websites that had some kind of maleware and Vipre stopped them. 7 out of 7. You see I'm a college student that is constantly searching the internet for research papers, scholar reviews, etc... I need a program that has this kind of detection. Oh one other bit of info. I run Malwarebytes, Advanced System Care, and Hitman Pro for additonal system utilities, Vipre works well with these programs.

Updated on Feb 24, 2011

For a little information for reviewers. I have download the new SP1 for Windows 7 64 bit. I did this in preparation to IE 9 Final release. In view of this I had a few concerns if Vipre could handle it. It absolutely does. I'm telling you all right now, without a doubt, there is none better than Vipre. I'm not an employee with GFI or any affiliates. I'm a college student that relies on the web for research and neccessities for obtaining my degree. "YOU CAN'T FIND A BETTER ANTIVIRUS SOFTWARE THAN VIPRE." Oh one other thing. If you have been following my updates you will notice that I was running Hitman Pro and Malwarebytes. I unistalled them just to see if anything would by-pass Vipre. Well today I ran Hitman Pro to see if Vipre was legit. Nothing came up. NUF SAID.

Updated on Feb 24, 2011

Opps, mistake. I didn't download Malwarebytes. I just ran Hitman Pro. No need for me to run Malwarebytes if Hitman didn't find anything.

Updated on Sep 4, 2011

It has been a while since I posted anything. So I have to confess, I have been trying out other products. The one I tried Is Com..., wiltout causing any problems. I didn't like the product. Their VPN service keeps disconnecting, they keep billing me when I tils them to stop service. They haven't replied to me with my concerns. The free version is just as good as their Complete version. Not woth it. So here I am back Vipre and another additional key purchase for another computer at my home. I still have't found a software that compairs with Vipre Premium and ease of use. I STILL THINK IT IS THE BEST!

"does the job but SLOWLY"

November 10, 2010  |  By codytone

 |  Version: Vipre Antivirus Premium 4.0.3904

Pros

mostly protects your computer
updates itself several times a day

Cons

SLOW. slow on start up, slows down firefox intolerabley
unless youre prepared to fiddle with the options this could well ruin your surfing experience
takes forever to do a full scan over twice as long as my last AVS (mcafee)

Summary

this seems quite a good package on the surface but after a few days it begins to drive you up the wall. (plus I got a trojan and a piece of malware within the first 4 days which I had to use other programs to get rid of.)
It is constantly asking you what to do everytime you do anything on the computer or surf which is a bit of a nightmare. Ok so once youve 'trained' it things become less annoying but the general slowness of all things internet related makes this a frustraing experience. In all good concience I cant recommend this, I'll go back to mcafee which would do a full scan in 40minutes compoared to the over 2 hours it took vipre. Nice try at providing a full security package but I'm not convineced, i've got a lean, mean fighting machine for a PC and this software turns it into a slug.

"Robust AV and Firewall software. Great Product"

September 28, 2010  |  By RedneckGeek

 |  Version: Vipre Antivirus Premium 4.0.3904

Pros

Great detections and removal. Best AV product out there. Light on resources. Easy to install/configure. Plenty of granularity for a consumer product. Great support team and forward thinking company. Dump your McAfee and Symantec and get VIPRE.

Cons

Recently merged with GFI.

Summary

From Counterspy to SB Personal Firewall to VIPRE, Sunbelt continues to raise the bar for malware and computer security software. I use Sunbelt Products at home and in the Enterprise and will never go back to Brand X. The software is lightweight and does not bog down my computers. Superior detections and removal process. GREAT Support team. Don't take my word for it. I challenge you to give it a try. Once you've tried it, you'll be convinced.

"Excellent product, highly recommended."

September 27, 2010  |  By Goriosis

 |  Version: Vipre Antivirus Premium 4.0.3904

Pros

Fast
Low memory and processor use
You hardly notice it scanning
Simple yet thorough controls

Cons

None it does what it says.

Summary

After testing all the other major suites this is by far the best, I cannot recommend it highly enough and they send out great security and news emails weekly as well. Family feel and fast response from the help desk. Make no mistake this is the best.
