I can’t stand malware. It’s just so wrong that I can’t use my laptop, work on my blog, read the news and let the kids play learning games without worrying about risks from dishonest people. I’m always amazed at the continuously increasing level of threats and risks that we face simply by going online. It makes me crazy when I somehow end up with a virus on my computer and lose valuable work time trying to get rid of it.
I used to use free anti-virus software, hoping that they were almost as good as paid ones. I figured that the odds of getting a virus were slim since I didn’t ever visit risky sites or open questionable emails or files. But as you all know, it’s not that simple. The most innocent of online searches can still mean risk of a virus or malware to your computer.
VIPRE is the newest generation of technology against malware threats. Instead of adding antispyware or antivirus modules to existing software like other programs, VIPRE has created one single, powerful tool to combat spyware and viruses in the same program. What this means for you is a higher performance software that doesn’t rely on system resources and doesn’t slow down your PC while it protects you.
I downloaded VIPRE to see what I thought.
It was easy to install and only took a few minutes. Once it was installed, it scanned my entire hard drive and gave me a detailed report on what it found. If there is anything suspicious, I can have it quarantined and then deleted. My PC is now clean and I have set additional checks every few days so that I continue to be protected. I thought the VIPRE was easy to use and definitely eases my mind about risks I might encounter in the future.
