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  By the way, did you know that outdated software {like Adobe, iTunes, Java, Skype, etc.} is one of the most common causes of an infection?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!

Primp and Prep with Hpnotiq

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



I was asked to check out the new Primp & Prep site from Hpnotiq and it’s pretty unique!  It’s a site that’s full of information and advice for a great time out on the town.  They have fashion tips, beauty advice, music, celeb gossip, and more!


This site is nice for those who don’t always have time to stay on top of the hottest trends.  Fashion trends change fast and when you finally get a night off for a fun girl’s night on the town the last thing you want is to run around worrying about what to wear.  All you have to do is go to this site and check out the hottest trends and find the ones that fit your style.


You know that I like all things related to beauty so it’s no surprise that my favorite part of the site is the articles related to beauty.  They select the best articles from top beauty sites, like Glamour, and add them to their site so you can access them all in one easy place!

This site also has fun music for you to listen to while you’re getting ready to go to town and party with your hair down music up!  Of course you can still listen to it while you’re getting ready to go out for a romantic dinner too.  If you’re interested, go and check our the site for yourself.  It’s a one of a kind!


If you chose to go out around alcohol don’t forget that you must be 21 years or older to drink alcoholic beverages and as always, please remember to drink responsibly…if you chose to drink at all.
