Vipre Antivirus installation process actually running smoothly without any problem. A little issues we found later when the application immediately check the Internet connection to download latest version of the threat defenitions from its server. However, there is no information tells about the size and duration of the download packages. As a result, we are not able to estimate how long it should to wait for.
