This is a very good program and very easy to use. I had Kaspersky Pure, but they couldn't seem to fix the problem with their NDIS 6 filter, which causing WIFI dropouts constantly. This program does not have that problem. So even with lots of time left on my Kaspersky, it became unusable. This program is fast and has you covered and works well with Windows 8! Sorry Kaspersky, you should have worked on my claim and not closed the ticket. Read My review on Kaspersky Pure. BUY IT AND INSTALL IT, YOU WILL BE HAPPY.

This program covers everything. As a matter of fact, the firewall is the tightest I have ever seen, and I have used almost all of the big ones. This program has no lag, and updates regularly and does not slow down the computer. It is also very easy to install in Windows 8 Professional. I like it better than Kaspersky, even when Kaspersky was working properly. I will continue to update as time goes on, but for now, it really covers the internet well, and works flawlessly with Firefox. I work for one of the largest companies in the world, and they use McAfee, and I got a free license as an employee. My email was hacked through McAfee. That doesn't sound bad, but believe me, it is, especially when you've had the email address for over 20 years. It took months to remedy the problem, because I had to create another email account. Never realized how many people had to be contacted, including banks, credit cards etc., and that took a very long time. So because of that, I am very cautious about what virus program I run.

Best Buy had the HP Officejet 8600 Pro printer on sale for $149, so knowing my 8500 was failing, I bought one. This where I learned how secure Vipre really is. I unpacked the printer, and setup the wireless Uverse modem on the printer's control panel, and then sat down at my desktop and installed the software. That is when I found out exactly how secure Vipre's firewall is. The HP install software could not find the printer on the network, because Vipre had it blocked. Well after playing with Vipre for awhile, I still couldn't get the printer to work. I disabled Vipre and the software found the printer on the network and installed fine. I re-enabled Vipre, and the printer would not print. I uninstalled Vipre, and reinstalled it, and the printer would not print. I Googled the problem, and it took me to an HP forum. There I found the answer, and I am posting it here so you future buyers can save some time.
With Vipre installed, and before you install new wireless hardware's software, open Vipre, click the firewall tab on the top, in the settings menu to the right, click view settings. This opens up a new window with all kinds of tabs. At the bottom of that window, click reset to defaults, and when the next window opens, check reset to learning mode, then click OK and exit Vipre. Install your product, and Vipre will then ask you to allow or not, and lets you create a rule for your new hardware. After your Hardware and software is installed, such as the above printer, make sure it prints, or works. Thereafter, reopen Vipre, click firewall, reset to defaults, then reset to simple mode, and close Vipre. Now your printer or other hardware will work, and will not be blocked by Vipre. This is a really solid virus protection, and I feel very secure with this program installed. It is a pain because of this, but I like the tight security it offers. It was also rated the best for 2014 by PC Magazine. Also, for you parents worried about your teenagers going to websites they are not supposed to be on, Vipre will block them. I tried several adult websites and dangerous chat rooms, and could not get on one of them. That really impressed me. It also scans social websites for harmful items, trogens and spyware. The makers of this program have thought of everything, and this now allows my grand kids to use my computers without worrying that they will end up where they don't belong. Vipre won't allow it.
