    "Excellent Product"

    May 31, 2011  |   By HotRodPhord

    Version: Vipre Internet Security 2013 4.0.4194

    Pros

    Light on resources

    Cons

    None so far

    Summary

    I had been running McAffee on my (older) computer. What had happened is that my computer started running slower, then McAffee sent me an email that they were going to upgrade me to their latest and greatest; which they did and then my computer bogged down to the point where it was taking 5 minutes to boot up. After trying several things, including finding a virus, I began to wonder if my AV software was the problem. Long story short, I switched to Vipre and my PC runs like a champ again. I went from 43 processes in my task manager down to 35. Plus, when I first installed Vipre and ran a scan, it found 133 files (mostly low-risk cookies) that McAfee missed. I haven't caught any viruses since switching either. Overall, I am very happy and recommend Vipre to anyone who wants to switch their AV software.

    "Great program, does what it says!"

    May 30, 2011  |   By epright

    Version: Vipre Internet Security 2013 4.0.4194

    Pros

    keeps my laptop free of spy ware, and viruses. does not slow my laptop like most programs. I have used counter spy along time, and liked it had Nortorn for years as antivius, but always had more spies undected than, which Vipre found.

    Cons

    love the program, if your serious about keeping your pc or laptop free of spyware and viruses.

    Summary

    Tried them all, Norton, Panda, you name it, but none of them ever kept my laptop or pc free of crap i didnt want. Best program I have found so far, and until one comes out that would beat this, I am sticking with Vipre.

    "Fast but not so good"

    April 9, 2011  |   By smilin-buddha

    Version: Vipre Internet Security 2013 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

    "Use Caution!"

    February 16, 2011  |   By kingdonking

    Version: Vipre Internet Security 2013 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.

    "Good Protection Hardly Know its Running"

    January 23, 2011  |   By philipfm

    Version: Vipre Internet Security 2013 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 8, 2011  |   By ronlee031762

    Version: Vipre Internet Security 2013 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+

    Updated on Jan 13, 2011

    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!
