Viper Antivirus Editor's Review

Even a few years back, PC users had very few choices when it came to picking up an antivirus. Over the years, malware and rogue app development has reached new heights, resulting in emergence of several new PC security firms in the arena. Vipre is one such contender. Its Antivirus comes with a sleek, intuitive UI and the app is equipped with several add-ons apart from core antivirus engine. It comes with options for covering up to 5 computers.

Vipre Antivirus supports computers equipped with Windows XP SP3 and later editions. It is not much resource hungry and features Easy Install which makes installation a breeze. Like top notch Anti malware tools, Vipre scans for existing malware during the install process and downloads latest antivirus signature updates.

It is quite evident that the UI of Vipre Antivirus is inspired by Windows UI tile design. The UI looks sleek and uncluttered as it is. The first full system scan can be quite lengthy but it also depends on hard disk and partition size and contents. As expected, a repeat scan takes far less time. You can schedule scans as per your needs. The search guard technology used on the app is compatible only with IE as of now However, the company says support for third party browsers will be made available soon. It can also scan for rootkits.

When it comes to malware detection and cleanup, Vipre Antivirus scores well. However, in malicious url blocking and thwarting malware downloads, it sits middle of the pack. Even in independent virus lab testing it gets outshined by some rival contenders. The app scores rather miserably in phishing site detection. In fact, in this segment it scores way lower than web browsers like Chrome, IE and Firefox.

Nowadays, some antivirus tools are shipped with bonus components that enhance usability and user privacy. Vipre Antivirus is no exception. There is a Secure File Eraser which is useful for shredding sensitive documents from hard disk. It integrates with Windows right clock menu.  

The History Cleaner module eradicates traces of browsing history from popular web browsers. It can also be used to wipe out temporary files from apps and Windows. The cleanup is quick. There is a component named Social Watch which is useful for thwarting malware spreading through social media profiles.

One good thing about Vipre Antivirus is that it does not impact PC performance at all. The facelift and add-on features notwithstanding, the app does not affect Windows booting or general computing adversely. It should run without problems even on older PCs.

Positive Points:
•    Sleek, clear UI.
•    Low system requirements.
•    Good malware detection.
•    Useful add-ons included.

Negative Points:
•    Dismal anti-phishing performance.
•    Scans are not fast.

Conclusion:
Overall, Vipre Antivirus comes across as a mixed bag. Its revamped UI makes things easier for new users and low system footprint deserves praise. The app also scores well in malware detection in cleanup. However, in other sections its performance takes a nosedive. The anti-phishing performance is really poor and it gets beaten by IE in this regard. The scans are also on slower side. However, there are some bundled utilities that are useful. The Social Watch and secure file eraser are handy tools. There are several free and paid apps that offer overall better performance.

Rating:3/5
