Like Tom’s, Get VIPRE!

The folks over at GFI Software gave us a big pile of codes for their awesome VIPRE Antivirus software to give out to you, our faithful Tom’s Hardware readers.  All you have to do is head over and “Like” Tom’s Hardware on Facebook for the coupon code that you can then redeem for a full version of the VIPRE Antivirus software.

If you’ve already Liked our page, find your code under the “Welcome” tab.  It’s good stuff, and was built specifically to ensure that it won’t slow your rig.  Our supply of codes is limited though, so get yours fast!

UPDATE: Last week as a perk for Liking Tom’s Hardware Facebook page, 2,500 of you got a free full version of the super-fast VIPRE Antivirus software and our supply of the codes was gone within the day.  Because so many have asked for a follow-up, the folks at GFI have agreed to an encore and have given us an additional 2,500 full free versions of VIPRE Antivirus that’s built so that it won’t slow down your rig.  Head over to Tom’s Hardware Facebook page and hit that Like button and get one fast while they last!

    GFI does not score bad, beast out Symantec and McAfee as well as the likes of Sophos and Bitdefender.

    I will stick to my properly configured Avast and Windows Firewall for now thanks, but if you don't have AV installed, you could do a lot worse.

    Even though I use Bitdefender. I feel Vipre makes a very good product. Great giveaway for those on the site who don't have a quality virus scanner.

    Also to say you never heard of it doesn't mean its not good. There is tons of software out there I've never heard of. Some of it comes down poor marketing. Some of it comes down to just letting your brand spread by word of mouth. Which can be a very powerful way to promote yourself.

    Vipre might seem a little odd because they do so much advertising, but they saved us here at work from a world of Symantec and BOY is their software nice! It really is!

    Antivirus is for... I don't even know who. Disable Autorun (1 click in Win7), don't click on BS on the net and that's ALL.

    Befriend a college student in real life. He or she likely has access to similar multi-year subscriptions with free updates for better software protection.

    Now that I've heard of this, I'll have to give it a look. Right now I'm using AVG free edition but I don't like it accessing my NAS files even though I told it not to. Norton also does that. The only one I have known of to leave my network drives alone is Webroot's Antivirus and spyware.

    Who would use this when you could use MSE which is a superior product anyways?

    I agree. It is the best and cheapest antivirus out there.

    Had Vipre here at work. Not impressed. Older office computers would lock up cold if actively scanning. If you company sprang for newer equipment maybe not bad. I use MSE at home on all my computers and havent had a problem.

    Bingo!

    Common sense will prevent 99.8% of malware and viruses.

    The other .2% will be prevented if you make sure that your Windows OS is fully up to date will all the security patches they offer. You can skip most of the other updates.
