I've never heard of this vendor, either. I just stick to Microsoft, since Windows is their product.

The reviewer at pcmag.com says a review of Vipre Premium is already underway. He didn't quote a release date, but it shouldn't take long since he said most of his first review already applied to Premium - it's just the firewall and web site filtering he needs to evaluate.

I, peronally use Vipre, though not the Premium version. Having used Norton, McAfee and many other AV programs, I can DEFINITELY attest to the LOW resource usage of Vipre. It really does allow my PC to run faster. The GUI is very easy to use and I have only had 1 false positive in the 4 months I have used it. The one False I reported was rectified about 2 weeks later in a definition update. The folks are GOOD.

This is just MY OPINION, and I could be wrong, but I like it!

Depending on the circumstances (e.g. what file it was) 2 weeks is a very long time, in my opinion.

Malwarebytes rectified a false positive I had the same day/next day.

Great, thanks for the link. Unfortunately the added features in the Premium version didn't do as well as the more basic Vipre AV. Apparently the IPS and HIPS features are off by default, and if you turn them on they generate a lot of pop-ups (Ah, the good old days ) This won't be a problem for the more savvy, but many suites have moved to white and black listing, and behavior analysis to eliminate pop-ups and take users out of the loop. That's much better for the newbies.

Update: I gave this a try and quickly grew weary of the pop-ups and general micromanagement the HIPS and IPS require. If I were going to continue using it I would turn the firewall off and install a different one, such as PC Tools Firewall Plus.

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

Just installed VIPRE
Just installed VIPRE antivirus and anti spyware. I am using PCTools firewall. After turning off MSE, it is reporting "Computer at Risk". Is it OK to run MSE and VIPRE? Should I ignore the "at Risk" warning? The firewall included Threatfire, should I turn that off too? VIPRE reports clean machine...

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. Any suggestions?...
