Keep your computer secure!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Vipre. All opinions are 100% mine.

When you work on your computer like I do, you have to be sure that your computer is working well all the time.  Otherwise, you'll lose time solving problems with your computer instead of doing your work, wasting your time as well as money.

That's why it's frugal to invest in a good Internet security program, one that will keep your computer safe and ensure that your computer is able to work at its best!

I recently had the opportunity to try VIPRE Internet Security.  The software includes antivirus software as well as  security features to auto-fix out-of-date software, a firewall to protect against inbound and outbound Internet threats, an anti-spam filter to protect against spam and phishing emails,and a bad website blocker to block access to malicious web pages.

It was really easy to install and use.  I went to the VIPRE Internet Security website and clicked "Download VIPRE now" to get the 30-day free trial.  Once the program was downloaded, I started it:

I then clicked Agree and the software started to download:

While I was downloading, I was still able to get other work done - it wasn't a resource hog.  After I completed the download process and restarted my computer, VIPRE was ready to protect my computer!

When I ran the first scan, I noticed that I was able to continue doing work while it was running.  With a previous antivirus program, the system would slow down while it ran.  I had to schedule the scans for a time when I wasn't using the computer for anything important.  Now it can run while I am doing my work, no problem!

When the scan finished, I was shocked that the software found some risks to my system!  After all, I was running another antivirus program before I installed VIPRE (I had to uninstall that program first).  So despite taking steps to protect my computer previously, it clearly wasn't totally protected.  VIPRE is doing a much better job at protecting my system than my previous software was.

So if you use your computer for important work, you really need to check out VIPRE.  What threats could your current antivirus software be missing?  You need to find out!  Visit for more information!

With so many ppl creating viruses these days and trying to hack into every account you own, you must have computer security if you want to create any level of security with your personal information. Computers are expensive and I'd rather pay to protect it than to have it fixed after getting a virus.

That's a lot of features for a nice price. And I like that you can get a free trial to begin with!

Oh wow this sounds like a nice thing to have just in case. Currently, I have a subscription with Geek Squad but when it runs out I will definitely be checking them out.

Ugh, viruses. They thoroughly suck. (Whether it's of the computer variety or the kid variety.)

It's quite scary how easily some people can get into your computer - thankfully we get security with our net provider as part of the package so I know I'm safe as long as I am sensible :) x

Pretty cool that you could continue to do stuff while Vipre was scanning. I also like that you can buy a lifetime subscription.
