A few months ago I rolled out Sunbelt Software's VIPRE Antivirus + Antispyware onto my desktop and notebook systems here, and I've not looked back. Today the company announces a dramatic price drop starting Black Friday for all home users.
Here's the deal:
Sunbelt Software … today announced an unprecedented price cut on its top-selling high-performance security product, VIPRE Antivirus + Antispyware(TM) starting Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving), November 28, 2008. A single one-year subscription license is being offered for $9.95, close to 70% off the normal $29.95 retail price. Users that desire more than one user license can also take advantage of a flat $20 discount on any other VIPRE licensing option, including the unlimited home site license where all PCs in a single household are protected with a single site license.
I've no hesitation or reservation in recommending VIPRE. I like it because it's lightweight (so much so that I'll happily keep it running while playing games such as Crysis and Far Cry 2, even allowing it to carry out deep scans while I'm playing), no-nonsense and does what it says on the tin. Check it out here. If there's a better antivirus/antispyware scanner out there, I've not found it (and I've been actively looking).
At $29.95 VIPRE was a good product at a great price. At $9.95 it's a virtual steal!
