VIPRE Antivirus is an alternate antivirus product for your current protection. The user interface is very simple an somehow not so user friendly also.
The main screen lists computer status, together with antivirus options: scan and scheduled scans list. There is also a button for update.
On-demand scanning can be performed in three ways: quick, full or custom, where you can choose what to be checked against viruses.
Active Protection is the name of the on-access shield and you can set it either to handle threats automatically or to be prompted for action, to include or not low-risk threats, and how to handle scheduled tasks or quarantine.
Email protection actively scans your emails for viruses included in attachments and includes an anti-phishing module for browsing.
Privacy is the last section under settings and here you can set either to scan your Facebook timelines or not, securely erase any traces of files you want to permanently delete and delete browsers history and cache.
If you ever suspect something going wrong on your PC and it can’t be handled while processes are in use, you can use FirstScan, a cleaning utility running at startup.
