Silence Is Golden

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


I have to confess that I've always preferred the strong, silent type.

No, I'm not talking about guys, I'm talking about software.  That's especially true with internet security software.  I don't need dozens of little popup windows interuppting my work to tell me that my virus definitions have been updated.    Sure, I want to know when there has been a threat, but otherwise I'd like my security software to quietly do its job.  It doesn't seem like a lot to ask.  For a while I just tried to ignore them,  but as the popup windows doubled in size and escalated the frequency of their annoying appearances, I knew I needed to find a new security product.,

I was a bit nervous about downloading the free 30 day trial of VIPRE Internet Security and antivirus software. I use my computer a lot and I don't want any software installation to slow down my PC or cause problems that cost me a lot of computer time.   I didn't need to worry.  Vipre even offered to remove my old antivirus software.    The download didn't interfere with my work and the installation was almost pain free.  I did have one small glitch.  It was not caused by Vipre, but by a setting on my computer.  Vipre provided both an error message and a very clear solution that I was able to implement in less than a minute.  After that, it was smooth sailing.



Vipre displays some informational tips during the installation that are worth reading, but I was also able to continue my work as it completed the installation.

Post installation, I can say that Vipre is just what I was looking for.  It does it's job quietly and  the only message I received was about a malicious site that was blocked.  Scans run quietly without slowing down my computer. I can even schedule my scans using Vipre's easy interface.  The interface also provides a lot of information on history and quarantined files as well as letting me change the software settings.  It's simple and I choose when I want to do it.   That''s just what I was looking for.

You can download and try Vipre at no cost.   You should certainly give it a try, if you are unhappy with your current software.  Even if you're satisfied, you should visit http://www.vipreantivirus.com/   to learn more about this great product and see how it compares to other security software.  I'm guessing you'll want to try it too.
