VIPRE Antivirus is a security suite designed to be lightweight and easy on resources, so you can be protected while maintaining PC performance.

This application protects your PC from viruses and spyware as you work. It's a fairly lightweight application compared to the competition, making it ideal for netbooks and lower powered laptops. The interface is clear, simple and easy to use, so it's ideal for non-technically minded people!

VIPRE Antivirus includes all the functions normally offered by security suites. You can perform a variety of system scans, from a quick light scan to a lengthy deep one, and you can schedule scans automatically too. It also comes with a virtualization system that allows you to test suspicious files in a safe box. There's also a file eraser, history cleaner and PC explorer.

Probably due to its lightweight nature, VIPRE Antivirus isn't quite as deep an application as some people might like but most people will be happy using it. Like may other programs of this type, when VIPRE Antivirus performs scans, it often highlights cookies as potentially dangerous files. While this is sometimes true, it doesn't discriminate between a malicious and useful cookie.

VIPRE Antivirus is a simple and lightweight security suite that may be missing some advanced features, but is sufficient for most users.
