I've had computer viruses on the brain a lot lately. About a month ago, my mother's entire PC was compromised; she couldn't even log in to her email account, and some stranger had access to all her files! It was a very frightening experience that resulted in a lot of time and money being spent on remote customer support.
You have to be cautious out there. Click on the wrong link and the next thing you know, "you" are sending out spam to your email and social media contacts. That doesn't look good if you work in any kind of professional capacity, or if you just want to keep your friends around!
So I was excited to have the opportunty to use VIPRE Antivirus for this review. The software took a very short time to download, was easy to install, and using the scanning tools was extremely easy. It took a while to scan my PC, but I was able to walk away, take a nap and let VIPRE do the work for me.
I was also shocked when VIPRE found three security risks on my PC. But the risks were removed and now my PC is happy again. Now, VIPRE is constantly running and can notify me when I've landed on something potentially dangerous.
One thing to remember is that when doing a scan with VIPRE or any other antivirus program, your cookies will be completely removed, so you'll have to enter all your passwords for your various accounts again!
