VIPRE Antivirus is a powerful security system that protects your computer against viruses and other Internet-based attacks.
The installation process takes several minutes, and the user interface of the program is easy to navigate through. In the main window, you can view the current scan status (last scan, next scheduled scan), protection status (active protection, email protection), and updates (automatic updates, definitions).
Scanning can be done in three modes – quick scan (checks for risks in common locations), deep scan (in-depth scan of all computer files), or custom scan (scan specific files and folders, as well as enable scans on running programs, Windows registry entries, cookies, inside specific archives, scans for rootkits, and others).
Furthermore, you can manage history, quarantine, blocked risks, allowed risks, but you can also schedule scans.
VIPRE Antivirus also features a Tools section where you can eliminate any traces of files from your computer in a secure manner, keep your privacy by removing browsing and search history, but where you can also view computer settings that are normally hidden.
Active Protection is a feature that supervises your computer in real-time. It blocks malicious agents before they infiltrate into your system, notifies you of any known risks that are blocked or quarantined, and checks files when they are opened or copied (with the possibility of selecting the file formats you want to monitor).
Plus, you can enable or disable email protection and anti-phishing, but also use FirstScan (a cleaner that runs at system startup).
