    "Great Protection and Security for Your PC"

    April 16, 2011  |   By MightyMouseNH

    Pros

    Easy installation and upgrades. Hardly know it's there when running. Affordable multi-user/multi-year licensing options. Customer and tech support have been great in the past (have not had to contact them since shortly after the buyout/merger).

    Cons

    Premium version (firewall Web filtering) occasionally likes to block graphics and various elements on some Web sites, but not all. Customizing is easy enough to solve any problems--or you can contact tech support for help on issues.

    Summary

    I started out using Sunbelt CounterSpy several years ago, and then upgraded to VIPRE Antivirus, and then to VIPRE Home Premium when it was first offered. I use it on XP, Vista, and 7 computers. I run Windows 7 on my MacBook Pro with Parallels, and VIPRE has been working fine on that system. VIPRE Rescue is available as an emergency tool, and I have used it on several clients' computers to clean up serious infections. The product offerings have expanded significantly since the merger/buyout with GFI, with many more for businesses and enterprises. But the home user has not been forgotten, and VIPRE is still there, is still excellent, and I recommend it highly.
