    IC,

    Just wanted to say thanks. I just took vipre on a walk into usenet land. It flagged every single file that antivir 9 beta flagged. Now I know this is not a big test nor that reliable.

    However, I am really really impressed. It is incredibly light and in my limited testing very powerful. I got a feeling, it is gonna hang with the big boys when it tests. Thanks again IC. Keep up the good work.

    PS. I just paid $49 for it and have a lic for antivir and norton 2009!

    Hawk

    I agree Vipre seems to quite competitive. Hopefully there will be some reputable comparatives of this product. From the very limited testing I have done it seems to have decent detection and good self protection. I've never needed it but I hear the support is excellent.

    I got Vipre and I think its really awesome. But I switched to Kaspersky AV. I like it better.

    ic i know ive asked before but since vipre and sunbelt are the same why not include the firewall into this and have it as a option. i know for people like my mom and wife they do NOT want to mess with all different things popping up and want a more " all in one " my wife just gave me the dirtiest look ever when i said im removing nis2009. she said that is the only program she has liked and has not had to "contend or battle with" she said she sees the pop ups and it removed what it needs to etc.. i am liking vipre myself and for those like "mom" and "wife" a all in one would be great imo.. again for those that dont want it have a option maybe?

    sorry if wrong place but just thought id ask.

    It would make sense to offer a combination of VIPRE and the Sunbelt firewall at a discount. I think Sunbelt also sells IHateSpam (spelling?), but that's probably too expensive for the average consumer.

    According to recent post in the Sunbelt blog such a combined "suite" is in the works and if i recall correctly it is expected to be out on the market in the second quarter of 09.

    Sunbelt does offer a discount on their fine firewall when it is purchased at the same time as Vipre. (Normally $19.95 it's reduced to $9.95). This option appears when you "check-out" after purchasing Vipre on the Sunbelt website.

    With how the market is, it would be meaningful to have all in one (and custom install) with an "attractive" pricing. :)

    People might want to trial both the firewall and VIPRE at the same time.

    There are demos available for both Vipre and their firewall on the Sunbelt website.

    Pricing of AV could be better pitched in these present times to attract new users; particularly when there are free alternatives - Antivir & Avast- which have a good track record over many years.

    The current nonsense with Symantec is really unfortunate. A great feature of NIS 2009 is it's almost dead silent (by default). That makes it perfect for users who can't/won't interact with permissions pop-ups, etc. I don't know of anything else that does such a good job of handling things without user input.

    Please do, I mean a figure of your stature would do better with a Avatar of Ricky Williams with a bong in his hands. Ask Eric about that one.;)
