VIPRE Anti-Virus Software Review

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


Recently, you may have noticed that my site, this site, was down.  If you have any anti-virus/malware software at all you were notified when visiting that it had been infected with malware and you had the option to exit or proceed anyway.  It was a nightmare!  I contacted my designer who is fabulous but in a totally different time zone and unable to help me asap.  I panicked and read and read all I could read about malware.  For hours.  I finally contacted someone who was able to help me out in a hurry for a relatively small fee.  Hooray, my online life was saved!


While reading all about malware I found out that my website could have been infected if my computer was infected.  I didn’t know that before and this news was worrisome.  I think I had up-to-date software but to be honest I really wasn’t sure.  By the way, did you know that outdated software {like Adobe, iTunes, Java, Skype, etc.} is one of the most common causes of an infection?  I didn’t either!   I did some more investigating and I learned about another anti-malware/spyware software, VIPRE Internet Security.




I downloaded the free version of VIPRE and I was pleased right away.  It didn’t drag down my system like other programs I’ve used.  Plus, this software incorporates both anti-spyware and anti-virus functionalities in one program.  The traditional, easy to follow, user interface was refreshing.  It spoke my language and I could easily figure out how to get it set up and running without the help of my husband.  That scored big points in my book!  The program also has a neat feature where it keeps me updated on the present threat levels using real-time capabilities.  I’m in love!


So, okay, I realize that no anti-malware/spyware/virus/other-bad-stuff program is able to ensure total protection and recovery but with VIPRE I think it comes pretty close.  So far so good anyway!  My system has been running dramatically faster and given the program’s fancy technology I can rest easy {for now} and not have to lift a finger.  It’s catching and neutralizing any threats before I even knew there were any.


VIPRE Packages


Oh!  This may be my favorite part – the company offers free tech {and malware removal} support for all virus/malware program related matters.  Isn’t that awesome?  I currently own the free-trial of the basic VIPRE home package but the company also offers an unlimited home option, which allows you to cover all systems that you currently own.  I think I may have stumbled upon a great thing.  It’s an effective, free, helpful addition to my home office.  If you don’t want to take my word for it {because I’m admittedly not a tech person!} check out the free version for yourself.  Go to and once you give it a look over, let me know what you think of it!

  1. This sounds good. I got the Moneypak virus on my computer a couple of months ago and had to spend a lot of money to get it removed. Stupid hackers. I am going to check this out. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thankfully my fix wasn’t too expensive but it was a headache for sure and something I don’t want to relive again.

    I think hackers should be hog tied and beaten. I HATE them. So sorry your site was down. This is a great find to prevent it from happening again.

    I’m glad you got your site straightened out. So frustrating! I did just learn that Java was a way for hackers to get in. It’s so strange that this common software we all use can cause such problems. Glad to hear there is good anti-virus software out there to keep everything safe.

    It’s so interesting that in this day and age many still don’t pay attention to anti-virus software. I really didn’t realize that non-updated software could be an opening for hackers though. I hope this prevents any more ‘incidents’ for your comp and your site 🙂

  5. Malware is so obnoxious!! Sorry you had to deal with all that!

  6. Ugh. I hate Malware. I’m glad you got everything fixed up. How frustrating!
