During our comparison of VIPRE Antivirus to AVG Anti-Virus and Microsoft Security Essentials, VIPRE Antivirus used the least amount of memory while the system was idle and during virus scanning.

VIPRE Antivirus completed its deep scan four minute and twenty three seconds faster than Microsoft Security Essentials, coming in second to AVG's time of ten minutes forty one seconds.

We performed and complete registry and file system scan after uninstalling VIPRE Antivirus. Unlike many Anti-Virus solutions, no remnants were found.



Pros:
- Includes both Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware protection.
- Low memory usage
- Easy installation
- Trial version available
- Premium version available with Firewall

Cons:
- Deep scan not as fast as AVG's Complete Scan
- Firewall not included in standard version.
