Windows 7: SunBelt Vipre AV compatible?

In a scan today, Vipre reported engine.dll from my Left4Dead folder as a trojan. Pretty sure it's not. It's been an issue before apparently with other anti virus packages. I sent it to Sunbelt to review and told it to always allow this file. Thankfully I don't have the default action as delete. I restored it from quarantine.

Strange that it did not report this file during a scan yesterday. Maybe new virus defs thought it was I suppose.

Yeah looks like a false positives. Good that you sent it to Sunbelt for review.

Getting now (well, trying to). Will report back when/if I install it

edit: WOW! That gave me nothing but problems. OK, here's what happened.
Uninstalled NOD32--installed Vipre--updated Vipre (20mins!!)
Got an error related to Spybot---uninstalled Spybot---Reboot
Laptop wouldn't shutdown, had to manually power down
Warning about "Incompatable Driver" desktop gadgets wouldn't load---Reboot
Got another warning "Unable to activate on demand restart required"---Reboot
Same warning---uninstalled Vipre, re-installed NOD32
Pity but there is something on my laptop that Vipre doesn't like.....

Hey i guess you downloaded the software which is not compatible for Windows 7 yet. Uninstall the current version and download this version which is fully compatible with Windows 7.

I've used Vipre for a year. I'm testing MSE but will be reinstalling soon. I really like the 'Family Plan" which gives you unlimited installs for all your computers. :)
it can get annoying it you let it use the default update schedule.
I set it for daily.

I'll get around to installing it but is it really that much better than NOD32? It seems lighter, from what I've seen, but does it have the advanced settings/capabilities that NOD32 has?

Is Vipre enough?
I recently installed Vipre. Is this sufficient protection? Would running PCTools "Threatfire" and/or MSE along side Vipre have any more benefit or would they conflict with each other? Thanks for any thoughts
