This feature will be useful if you choose protection for your small business. But in this case, the price will be different and will be $24 per year for one computer.
Installation and adjustment
The registration process allows antivirus customers to avoid visiting all kinds of suspicious servers and if you install a home version of antivirus you only need to specify how many computers you need to protect and how many years you want to use the services of antivirus.
Unlike many competitors, Vipre Antivirus does not require automatic updates during registration. Immediately after purchase, you receive a key to your email which must be entered into the program to activate it. Once you have done this the installation process will begin which may take up to 30 minutes, and once it is finished, the program will do its first scan of your system.
After that the program is ready to use, some parameters are set automatically and you can change them if you want.
VIPRE Antivirus security features
The antivirus has both standard security features and unexpected new ones, such as
• Additional scanning options – under this function, the antivirus will only check new or modified files. This is very useful and can save you a lot of time. Once the scanning process is complete, you can either quarantine the files or erase them. You are also able to choose which files you wish to scan
• Active protection is a very well thought out feature that can peek into archives and block possibly harmful activities. There is also a “Quiet Mode” for active protection, which does all the work without bothering the user with various notifications. But you still need to keep an eye on it, because sometimes the program may consider malicious files that are not and block them permanently
• Secure File Eraser is not just about moving files to the trash and then cleaning them. It deletes unnecessary files and then overwrites that data with meaningless data so that it is impossible to restore it
