Which is the fastest and lightest antivirus security solution for a Windows computer? If you’re into gaming or 3D rendering, you might want to give Viper Internet Security 2012 a try. According to them, it does not slow down your Windows PC, reason being that VIPRE was built from scratch with all-new technologies that optimize your PC’s overall performance — even when updating or running a scan.
We are not going to talk about the features, it has all the basic covered, more or less the same with their competitors. Here are some of the users’ comments:
- Fast and does not drag down performance of the PC like Norton and other s and it catches stuff quickly. – Gervaise3
- VIPRE doesn’t slow down my computer and in the 2 years I’ve been using it, I’ve never had anything get through. – Newton
Viper runs on Windows Server 2008, XP, 7 , Vista, 2003 and on both 32 and 64 bit. VIPRE Antivirus combines next-generation antivirus and anti-spyware technologies to give you everything you need to protect your computer — and nothing you don’t.
Again, the best antivirus is to practice safe browsing and downloading habits. Do not download suspicious files from the internet, especially keygen and cracks found in torrent websites. Usually they are attached to a Trojan knowing very well that the reason you’re downloading an antivirus is because your PC has none – thus vulnerable.
