VIPRE Internet Security (Still) Gives Me Peace of Mind

This post brought to you by Vipre. All opinions are 100% mine.

 

I shared with you a few months ago that I’d downloaded VIPRE Internet Security onto the laptop I inherited from my dad.  It’s been a blessing to have- that’s the laptop I let the kids play on, and I really REALLY like the peace of mind knowing that it’s keeping malware and viruses away.  We don’t let our kids go onto the internet without us right there ever, but we all know how kids can click one thing innocently and poof! There are things that pop up really, really fast and I want my kids- and my laptop- protected.

Installation of this software was so simple.  This laptop is a few years old (almost 4) so it’s not got the latest versions of everything we might use, or rather, it didn’t have them.  I wasn’t sure I wanted to be downloading more things onto it before I was able to secure things, so to speak. I liked the idea of Vipre because it   includes a firewall, a spam filter and website blocking into one powerful solution for complete protection against malware.  

VIPRE has an Easy Update automatic software patching feature – more peace of mind for me- I hadn’t realized before looking into this that one of the ways viruses and malware attack is through out of date versions of programs.  Yikes.  Given that my dad was using this laptop for a few years – we decided to get this laptop back to “basics” as we could and remove whatever we could, install VIPRE and then update things.  My dad has  Alzheimer’s and once upon a time worked in the world of computers but with the disease’s progression, we have no idea what he clicked, downloaded, etc.  Better safe than sorry!

One thing I like most about this program is that it doesn’t bog down the laptop.  I am not always using it for blogging stuff, but when I do use it to blog, I can’t have it slowed down because a backup or scan is running.  I need my laptops to be efficient and not waste my time! 

VIPRE also comes with free U.S. based technical support- and trust me, I take full advantage of technical support.  I may be a blogger but technical stuff eludes me….

  • I have never tried Vipre for my antivirus protection, because I have always been happy with the one I currently have, which also happens to be free. I am happy to hear that you are also satisfied with your Vipre antivirus protection. :)

  • I love seeing reviews for internet security. It’s so hard to know which ones are trustworthy and which one’s are actually designed to give you viruses just so they can claim to fix them! I will keep Vipre in mind when speaking to friends/relatives about computer safety.

  • I have internet security already installed on my laptop, due to knowing people who can hack into computers and have watched them do it to show me just how easy it was to do. I am glad that companies make these, there is way too many people trying to get information to scam you.
