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of mind for me- I hadn’t realized before looking into this that one of the ways viruses and malware attack is through out of date versions of programs.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….
