    Hi

    I purchased Vipre anti virus plus a few months ago but now I'm wondering if it's all that great...

    first of all during a scan it brings my win xp..1gb ram 2.66 ghz computer to its knees..much worse than Norton...

    the web filter blocks sites I know are good...no testing on Av comparatives for some reason....So I really don't know how effective it really is..I know its being pushed all over the net

    anyone have any recent info on vipre?:doubt:
    thank you
    tom

    Ive been contemplating running VIPRE AV and ditching Panda, but right now Panda is running great on my system.

    Recent thread here .

    Personally I would only run the standalone AV in a layered defense and apart from a slight freeze when updating, it has given me no problems.

    I would contact their support to solve your problem with the Premium version.

    As Blackcat pointed out, let's keep the Vipre discussion going in that current thread: [thread=285928]Vipre Antivirus[/thread]. Thanks!
