Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I’ve heard good things about it but can’t confirm whether its performance is as good as the marketing slicks say it is. I’ve used VIPRE on a 3+ year old system (with pretty adequate hardware nonetheless) and it was just too much for it. But so was Webroot and Panda. It’s now running Free AVG with no issues.

    We have Vipre enterprise running at 25 customer sites, installed on over 1200 servers/workstation/notebooks with very good results. We also have Trend Micro, Bitdefender and AVG still deployed at some customer sites. We are moving all our customers to Vipre when the current subscription ends for the other anti-virus products. This is not to say that Vipre has been trouble free. But all issues were quickly resolved by Sunbelt and it was easy to work with their support personnel in Florida. The computers that we have Vipre deployed on varies from P4 1.7 with 256 Meg to Xeons with 16 GB of memory. It is important to do set up the policies for destop, notebooks, servers and adjust the deep scan. The quick scans are very light on the systems and most users never detect that they even ran. However, deep scans are much more intensive and you would want them to run when the systems are not in use, like after hours, weekends etc. I was so impressed with this product that I purchased the home version which I have installed on all my family computers, which include numerous notebooks and desktops.
