When I say lightweight, it does not mean only a few features exist. While all antivirus programs must be able to provide daily update options in order to combat new threats, Vipre, with all its various features is still lightweight when run.
And I mean it literally.
I thought it would hog my PC the same way such well known anti virus softwares like Norton and McAfee do but I was surprised that it did not affect my PC like I expected it to considering my desktop is not even that fast when it comes to hardware specs.
VIPRE Internet Security is quite easy to install. Just follow the installer wizard and you will have it running in no time.
It also has this neat feature that does automatic software patching with its Easy Update feature. This means that out of date software like Windows, Java, Adobe, Skype, iTunes and others are the most common cause of PC infections and its security holes get automatically patched by Vipre.
Funny thing when I ran a security check using Vipre, it gave quite a lot of results whereas my previous McAfee software was not as effective.
All in all, Vipre does what I want it to do: protect my PC from secrity threats and it does so in real time which is critical considering many of us these days are online most of the time and majority of these threats are because of the Internet.
You should try it out. I bet you will uninstall your old anti-virus application and use Vipre in the long run. If you want to find out more information, you can visit vipreantivirus.com.
