I'm actually switching from Vipre back to a free program, but not b/c I'm dissatisfied with Vipre. It ran well, was unobtrusive, didn't seem to slow things down. But looking back, I see that I did have to iron something out w/their customer service rep. I think it had to do w/renewing my subscription. Note that unless they've changed their packaging, their firewall is sold separately. I used Comodo instead for that.
My move is sheerly an economics-driven measure. From what I've been able to find online, it seems that the extra protection from a paid subscription is marginal, and safe surfing practices are more important. I have my own question about switching, but I'm start a new thread for my question.
If I had a job, I would probably just renew my subscription. Why mess with something that works, right?
