Vipre Antivirus compatibility

Hello everyone,

I am having CE installation problems on a Windows 10 computer using Vipre Antivirus. I disabled my antivirus program, but CE installation failed and asked that I uninstall. I uninstalled my antivirus program (and turned off the default Windows Defender antivirus and firewall), but my CE install still thinks I have Vipre Antivirus installed and will not complete installation.

This is extremely aggravating, because I really need to both have an additional layer of internet accountability and have the also-expensive network security I've already paid for functioning as well.

Any thoughts?

Kind regards,

Sam

Hello Madcap_Magician,

Thank you for your post and I apologize you're experiencing issues installing the Covenant Eyes software. Vipre is one of the few anti viruses that we have incompatibility issues with. We have been trying to work with Vipre to make the two compatible, but we do not have a resolution yet. It is possible that CE is still detecting pieces of Vipre in the registry or app data. I would suggest running C Cleaner by Piriform to remove any leftover Vipre files. C Cleaner is great for removing unused/broken files and registry keys from your computer. 

After running C Cleaner you should be able to install Covenant Eyes with no issues. If you are continuing to have issues please feel free to contact our Customer Service at 877.479.1119.

Best regards,
Annelise
