It had been more than four months sinceÂ VIPRE Antivirus software took charge of my PCâ€™s security. By right, I should have more to say since my initial review in May, but thatâ€™s not the case here. In fact, I have not interacted with the program since, other than updating the software, and thatâ€™s only for once.
These are my test results back then:
- Quick scan â€“Â TwoÂ riskÂ was detected in the 8 minutes quick scan
- Deep scan â€” 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. Thatâ€™s exactly how I wanted an antivirus to behave (it drives me nuts seeing people paying dearly for a bloated antivirus).
