    Hi,

    Anyone can give any comments on how ViGuard (Home and/or Pro) performs?
    Is there still a SpySweeper version included?
    TIA

    Gerard

    I'm fairly familiar with ViGuard. Are there particular questions you are wanting to ask? It is a very nice program. You should be able to find some posts of mine if you do a search for ViGuard as well. I will not be back on till tomorrow so it might be easier to do the search but after feel free to ask any questions. As far as the SpySweeper version I don't think it is still available. Again have to go to work but feel free to leave questions.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    I did try it few months ago, what I remember is that the GUI was not easy to use : you have 3 main windows, depending of the modules you want to show; unfortunately you can't view everything in the same window, and must go from one to another very often :( ... That was the detail I didn't like.

    I don't remember the exact use of theses 3 windows, but I've still screenshots somewhere.

    But except for this GUI problem, the program is very good - Chris12923 will tell more than I could here ;) .

    The reason why I don't use it is that it does offer all features you usually find in several programs (registry protection, process protection (with driver/service monitoring, if I remember), files/scripts protection, etc. Even connections monitoring with the pro version). For now I prefer to use a "classic" AV with dedicated programs for theses purposes - but if you like the comfort to find everything in the same program, ViGuard could be for you :) .


    ps : SpySweeper seems still offered with it, when you look at the site.


    Cheers,
    nicM

    Thanks guys,

    In the mean time I overlooked Bluezzanetti's link to Kareldjag's review of this program. I am very impressed, sounds a very solid security layer.
    Looking further I found out that the prices dropped some (but not in UK??). The french version still has a one year SpySweeper license.
    Thanks again.

    Gerard

    You're right, US/UK version doesn't include SpySweeper anymore - but it's now more cheap than the French one ;) .

    It's actually an AV, since it can repair infected files.

    Note that the UK price is in Sterling! and i.e. the Dutch version is in euro's!

    Just to confirm, I did download and install it on my secondary partition. No problems and localization is as it should be. Filename should be something like ViguardPro_xxxxxx_en_trial for the English version ViGuard Pro trial for example.

    Is anyone using latest Viguard version or has tried it lately?

    I would like to hear your recent impressions on its effectiveness and resource usage.

    Thanks.
