Windows 7: Vipre Internet Security 2012 Causes Whole System to Hang

29 Dec 2011   #11

Win 7, 32bit, Premium
 
 

I downloaded Vipre Internet Security (trial) recently and was not impressed. It did not"hang" my system like yours, but seemed to effect resources.

It is very difficult to remove completely, even with Revo Unistaller. Leaves traces on your machine. You may google "Vipre removal" for more info.

Does Vipre offer any satisfaction guarantee for a possible refund/compensation ?

Yeah, their original was much better. They made a big change a few months ago, and I am also thinking this is the last time I will pay for a subscription from them. A shame, too. Their first program barely used any resources, and it caught a few viruses the other three programs I tested did not.

I have an uninstall utility they gave me through a chat session, so I should be able to remove it all.

I think they have a guarantee. I will have to look into it. I know if I get a virus, they will work with me to remove it and fix my computer for free (or at least they used to have that clause).

VIPRE causing Windows7 64-bit OS to hang

Temporary fix is easy - just disable Firewall Web filtering option until GFI will fix the problem and use Firefox with noscript to visit untrusted web sites.

I actually removed the program and replaced it with The good and free system security combination and have had no problems since.
