    "The Best Out There"

    January 8, 2011  |   By ronlee031762

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Since my last posting I have completely removed Malwarebytes, Hitman Pro, and Advanced (Advanced do to legal issues). I was running them on a weekly basis; but eveerytime I ran them there was nothing for them to clean. Vipre totally blocks everything. I'm an online college student--so I do a lot of research on the web. Vipre has blocked several sites from even opening. It totally blanks the page with it's web blocker when something is detected. If I could encourage the whole wolrd to install Vipre I would. There is none better period.
