I recently inherited my dad's laptop. It was actually my mom's, custom ordered to her specifications, a few weeks before she died. My dad's barely used it since, but between the two of them they managed to put a lot of “stuff” on the laptop that was inhibiting the performance. Last week, I had my nephew help me get it back to factory settings, and I knew the FIRST thing I need to get onto the computer was virus protection. I turned to Vipre antivirus, since I've used them previously and had a good experience with them. The first 30 days are free, so I figured this was a safe way to test the waters and make sure this will be the right antivirus protection for me.
Getting the software onto my laptop was super simple. Visit the site, click a few buttons, and within 5 minutes, I had the program running and ready to go. The process is quite simple and I know that if and when I purchase the program, that process will be simple as well. I had the first “full” scan running within 10 minutes of sitting down at my laptop, and that includes answering a phone call and helping one of the kids in the bathroom. Not bad, considering once my nephew was done with my laptop, I had zero protection until I got Vipre downloaded and ready to go.
Thankfully, the scans have shown nothing but tracking cookies thus far. I think I'm safe. I needed to be sure before I started adding our family photos, etc. to the new laptop! I also want to be sure to protect our identities and ensure that our home internet usage is secured. I can rest easy knowing we're good to go- and in a few weeks, I can decide if I want to purchse the package or not. Right now, I'm leaning towards purchasing. I do like having a 30 day trial before making a decision though!
