Lighter than Nod.

Faster than Nod.

Detected things Nod did not.

Never really found a need for any advanced settings in Nod other than to confuse me and have something set that shouldn't be or something that wasn't set that should be.

Hey Igster!
Glad you and Dinesh started this conversation. I'm running Vipre now and it is very nice. Running fine with Threatfire too. I'm waiting on Avast 5 to come out of beta before I decide if I want to spend money for my AV. Avast 5 looks very promising but isn't ready for prime time yet.

Hi Dinesh,

I've occasionally had a problem where my Firefox process gets "stuck". On your screenshot, I notice two instances of both browser running. Thats what mine will do when its stuck. Right click on the browser processes and terminate them. Then reopen Firefox. See if that helps. I've never linked this behavior to Threatfire but next time it happens, I'll investigate a little more and see if that's the cause.

I use the advanced settings to do things like add exceptions etc

Well, you can add exceptions pretty easy in Vipre as well. Plus, there are quite a few things that are configurable.

thanx for that. I'll install it when I get a chance. I never thought about running any other av software before as NOD32 has served me well...very exciting!!

Well, guess I'm nuts, but even though I still had about 2 years left on my ESS subscription, I went ahead and bought Vipre for the wife and I for a year.

Just like the app that much. It is fast and works well. I really have not been happy with slow response times from ESET for releases and issues that have been presented to them.

Sunbelt was super fast in addressing any issues or questions that I had, even though I was not a licensed user. ESET simply ignores you it seems.

I've switched to Vipre from Avira(free version) and I've to say I'm impressed.
less false positives , less memory utilization.
If you going to buy Vipre use coupon Sunbelt Software Coupon Codes - all coupons, discounts and promo codes for sunbelt-software.com so it will cost you 20$.

Yeah, I ended up with a coupon and paid $29 for two copies for a year. Not bad at all.
