"VERY Terrible"

December 10, 2014  |  By Divine_sacrifice

 |  Version: Vipre Internet Security 2014 7.0.4.3

Pros

Doesn't slow you down (because it doesn't do anything) easy to use.

Cons

IT DOESN"T WORK!

Summary

I got this when I first got my laptop and I originally thought it must be the computer why it kept messing up and slowing down or things wouldn't load, This product allowed so much junk to come on the computer and reset settings it's unbelievable. My touch screen stopped working, I lost Admin I had to replace the hard drive 2x. I wrongfully blamed dell and they were so nice they replaced it under warranty. My warranty ran out and it was doing it all still so it dawned on me to install the Kaspersky I have on the desktop and try my code from there (I didn't think I had an extra use but I guess I did) I went to download my lightshot again which I did every time with viper(my browser is auto-correcting) and it said all was fine well Kaspersky said oh no it isn't IMMEDIATELY and took about an hour undoing the mess that viper completely missed restarted and the comp was displaying some of the same symptoms as before and Kaspersky pops up and says lets do this check, fixed all the junk it changed and poof good as new. DO NOT EVER GET THIS PRODUCT, IT WILL SERIOUSL JUST SIT THERE AND LET ANYTHING DO WHATEVER IT WANTS AND DESTROY YOUR HARD DRIVE!

"Updates are 100 Mb Several times daily"

November 29, 2013  |  By kayakhigh

 |  Version: Vipre Internet Security 2013 6.0

Pros

Did not seen to slow down system much

Cons

A bandwidth pig.

Summary

Bought it and had to uninstall. We live remote and internet is capped at 10 Gb / month on a Telus smarthub. Above that it's highway robbery $5 per Mb

Vipre updates definitions several times daily... 100 Mb per update.
Between my laptop and my wifes, Vipre drained our 10 Gb pretty damn quick.

I also kept downloading a huge 95 Mb "beta" update for some reason, but in would never install properly on either laptop. Automaticly it kept downloading that fu**ing beta update over and over all day long, on top of the definition reloads.

I used several bandwidth monitoring programs, and they all showed Vipre was the bandwidth pig. Had to uninstall. We never went over 7-8 Gb a month previously, but Vipre made it impossible

Switched to Comodo for free. The updates are tiny, and its up on a whole new level higher than Vipre. Comodo Rocks !!

""Vipre" The only Security I've trusted for 5+ years"

October 15, 2013  |  By JJstryyker

 |  Version: Vipre Internet Security 2013 6.0

Pros

It's had no problems tracking Viruses or Malware that I would encounter from time to time. The program I find to be very dependable and reliable
from my experiences in the past. I just downloaded the 2014 version of Vipre and hope it is as good as the 2012 and 2014.
Vipre is the fastest program "in all functions"
I've ever used. I do recomend Vipre Security..

JJr. O.C. Ca.

Cons

Re Loading from the disk after a few years can be a problem but, Viper's down load site saves you a lot of time and steps. If you have a key# keep it for verification...

Summary

Vipre is a good system to have for Your Security needs. I have had a few others before Vipre and there is no comparison.
I hope this helps you out in making a decision.

JJr.

"Suite was nice, loved at first but Definitely trash"

August 11, 2013  |  By Maverick_Wolfe

 |  Version: Vipre Internet Security 2013 6.0

Pros

I tried this based upon other reviews and a reputable site that had it listed as a number one application, Ease of use and easy to figure out are the only pros here.

Cons

EVERYTHING, the entire program is a CON, the software creator is a CON. It in combination with my poor attenuation from my cable provider managed to mess up my Network stack so bad I couldn't even perform a manual reset of the stack and reinstall everything manually to the card interface before it failed less than 24 hours after the first time.

Summary

This software absolutely sucks I had to do a system restore to the 7th when I had JUST done a re-format. don't bother even using this piece of junk.

Updated on Aug 11, 2013

Not only did vipre screw up my operating system and my network it NEVER restored files I told it to and permanently deleted them, not only did it do that it removed them from my cloud based storage drive as well! STAY AWAY from this software AT ALL COSTS! This software is that bad... I had files I've had for YEARS that were actually clean get permanently deleted and I have no backups or no way of re-downloading some of them. I'd love for vipre to reimburse me for the money I spent on some of those things that I can now not re-download but I doubt that will happen. I am pushing Cnet to remove this program and file from their database and downloads as Vipre IS a Nuiscience ware and not only that it is a SCARE WARE as well... this WILL delete files that you know are alright and will NOT properly restore them. VIPRE in my professional opinion is a Trojan or Malware in itself.

"What's with all the hate"

July 19, 2013  |  By super14man1

 |  Version: Vipre Internet Security 2013 6.0

Pros

Very fast and light only goes to high CPU usage if you want to use their hyper scan to scan in under 2 minutes in quick scan. Web filter blocks almost every bad website.

Cons

Firewall is weak

Summary

Very good low budget antivirus that doesn't need all the hate it's got

"Crap is a four letter word"

July 11, 2013  |  By TedEhajj

 |  Version: VIPRE Internet Security 2012 5.0

Pros

very cheap and lots of profit to be made reselling this crap to poor unsuspecting end users

Cons

I would steer far and clear of this like the previus commenter said use your pole to give it a wide berth. The program rarely catches anything when its installed and if i could give it less the a .5 rating i would

"It's easier to get rid of malware than uninstall Vipre!"

June 23, 2013  |  By MaryonJeane

 |  Version: Vipre Internet Security 2013 6.0

Pros

Works in the background

Cons

Misses some malware
Technical Support can be slow and unhelpful
Can wipe out valid programs
Updates other programs behind your back, even when instructed not to do so
Won't uninstall properly

Summary

I've used Vipre Pro for a couple of years, but recently it let in malware. I asked for technical support and, after a delay, got a response containing just a link to a page on their website which basically boiled down to "It's probably the fault of Microsoft or some other program, so contact them". I protested strongly and finally, after a couple of days, got hold of someone who was prepared to help. This was far too late for me as I obviously needed to use the computer (for work, apart from anything else), so by that time I'd uninstalled Vipre (or so I thought...) and installed other protection. However even this hadn't been easy as parts of Vipre were still there and stopping some antivirus trials installing. I tried using a Vipre clean-up program as well, but still no joy. Apart from other problems, I'm being prevented from visiting some (legitimate) websites and, because Vipre isn't installed, I can't whitelist them as I did when it was installed. Every time I try to uninstall Vipre using heavy-duty clean-up programs, I'm informed that Vipre isn't installed...

Vipre has also, during its life with me, wiped out programs on memory sticks without warning - uninfected and legitimate, if small and idiosyncratic, programs and tools which I needed.

Cannot recommend.

"Great Protection"

March 29, 2013  |  By AvinaRepair

 |  Version: Vipre Internet Security 2013 6.0

Pros

Quick
Precise
Light
can run simultaneously with malwarebytes

Cons

So protective that you will have to allow/approve when other people try to connect to your internet due to the firewall. You only need to do this at first.

Summary

Vipre Internet Security has protected me from numerous viruses, malware, and suspicious sites. The only bit of information I would like its users to know is if you purchase a lifetime membership, its only lifetime for as long as your computer is healthy. For example, if your hard drive is corrupted or wiped, you cannot get the lifetime license back and would need to purchase another.

March 01, 2013  |  By scooter1129

 |  Version: Vipre Internet Security 2013 6.0

Pros

Liked it for Win 7

Cons

Slows comp a little, Ratted a 4 until I tried it on new windows 8

Summary

I cant get the correct drivers for Vipre Internet Security 2012 to work with my new laptop installed with Windows 8. I tried changing the compatibility and still get errors.
