Virus infection is one of the worst fears of any PC owner. In the past there were only a few anti-virus companies like McAfee and Symantec / Norton, but over the years we have seen an explosion of software makers to keep up with the latest viruses. But then came Vipre, the best little anti-virus program in Cyber Space.
VIPRE Antivirus is high-performancesoftware that doesn’t slow down your PC like older, traditional security products. You can kiss your bloatware goodbye. Tired of that old program that makes your PC slow down to a crawl?

Back in the 90′s McAfee was King, but over time they started to add in many additions to their program to enhance it. Firewall, SPAM protection, Spyware protection, Anti-Rootkit, and Phishing protection have been added to most major anti-virus programs. Along with increased protection, the two unfortunate side effects have been a much slower computer and decreased ability to fight vriuses as they spread their resources too thin trying to be all things to all people. In the end, most programs that try to do everything tend to do none well. Most good technicians stopped recommending the big anti-virus programs about 6 years ago.
Customers of My Tech Guys will have known us to recommend AVG in the past as an excellent Anti-virus program but we found it started to act buggy, not being effective against viruses, and slowing down customer computers. This corresponded with when AVG aggressively started marketing their AVG Pro products. The passionate staff at My Tech Guys worked tirelessly trying to find a replacement program that would protect customers without sacrificing the speed of their computer.
At the end of the day the only program My Tech Guys recommend is Vipre Anti-Virus.
