VIPRE antivirusIt had been more than four months since VIPRE Antivirus software took charge of my PC’s security. By right, I should have more to say since my initial review in May, but that’s not the case here. In fact, I have not interacted with the program since, other than updating the software, and that’s only for once.

These are my test results back then:

  • Quick scan – Two risk was detected in the 8 minutes quick scan
  • Deep scan — CPU and memory usage did not spike, PC responsiveness unaffected. Total scan time is slightly over 4 hours, with archives scanning on (off by default)


The antivirus is now running on autopilot, scanning for malicious programs everyday exactly as scheduled. And just like from day one, my work flow is not affected by the scans. No slowdown whatsoever. The popup balloon is the only clue I have when a scan is started. That’s exactly how I wanted an antivirus to behave (it drives me nuts seeing people paying dearly for a bloated antivirus).

 Win a free copy of VIPRE antivirus

If you’d also like to give VIPRE antivirus a spin, without paying a dime, you have the chance now. On October 8th, a SheepTech reader will walk away with a free copy of VIPRE antivirus worth $29.95, courtesy of GFI.

All you have to do is to submit a comment below, optionally telling us why you want to give VIPRE antivirus a try. Good luck.

    I’m not sure if I ever need another AV. Have used Panda, SEP v9-11, F-Secure and two weeks on Trend Micro. With full respect, not one can beat NOD32 v1-5 in term of small memory footprint, coverage of virus prevention, and its default security settings. But with with recent hype of Vipre effectiveness, I’ll would like to have a longterm test of it.

    Is this contest still available? I hope that it’s not too late for me to win a free license. So here goes my story. I’ve bought a 1 year subscription of Vipre Antivirus Premium last year and my license has already expired two months ago. As far as I can tell, Vipre is probably the best Antivirus I’ve ever used, no kidding man, I’ve used a lot of Antivirus software, and Vipre is the only antivirus I’ve purchased so far. Vipre didn’t slow my computer down, the scans were pretty quick and Vipre catches all the bad stuff found on my computer. I’m currently using Microsoft Security Essentials, and I would love to use Vipre again in future but my financial situation is really bad right now that I can’t even pay my bills, due to the fact that I’m still a student. I would highly recommend Vipre to those who are looking for an antivirus software. Just search for Vipre on google and you will find a lot of good reviews there. I have already tweet this contest and I would be very happy to grab a free license. MSE sucks, though. Thanks in advance.

  17. Antivirus or anti virus software is used to prevent, detect, and remove malware, including but not limited to computer viruses, computer worms, trojan horses, spyware and adware. Computer security, including protection from social engineering techniques, is commonly offered in products and services of antivirus software companies. Thanks.

  18. An incorrect decision may lead to a security breach. If the antivirus software employs heuristic detection, success depends on achieving the right balance between false positives and false negatives. False positives can be as destructive as false negatives. Thanks.

  19. A variety of strategies are typically employed. Signature based detection involves searching for known patterns of data within executable code. However, it is possible for a computer to be infected with new malware for which no signature is yet known. Thanks.
