SunBelt Vipre AV compatible?

I installed it but got an error saying that the driver is blocked due to compatibility. So i downloaded the beta version which is, according to Sunbelt, is Windows 7 compatible.
However, the protection seems to be disabled. I try to update but the update fails every time.

How does it compare to other AV's though? Have you seen any testing of it out there? Any reports on the various comparative sites?

i dont know why this av is kept aside. its running great so far. Tried to infect the pc with some bad .exe files and it detected them right there. very low on resources. i think i will use it. I find it better than NOD32 and MSE though.

Yeah, I might give it a shot. Watching Matt's review on YouTube right now.

Only problem is, it is not free. I've already paid for ESS and MSE is free. Not sure I want to buy another AV...

There are actually 3 processes. This is what I have currently during a full deep scan. Pretty light overall. Seems so far it has found a backdoor trojan that both MSE and ESS missed. I don't know the details yet because it's still scanning.

Yep, found two things that both MSE and ESS missed and did a full deep scan in just 31 minutes (the fastest of anything I have recently used):

Sunbelt claims Vipre is Windows 7 compatible (32 and 64 bit) on the website. They also say the license is per machine not OS install. They refer specifically to running XP mode in Windows 7 (VM requires it's own AV), but it sounds like the license would support multi-OS booting as well. That's a good deal. There was a lot of discussion of Vipre in Wilders when it was first released if you're curious.

While sitting idle, it has 2 processes running which takes just 12-15 MB RAM. While deep scan, the memory usage increases but still the difference is minimum. You dont even know if its running in the background. i m really impressed with thi program so far.
