    "Seems to do its job well"

    November 18, 2009  |   By geneven

    Pros

    Supposedly light footprint; intriguing cloud concept

    Cons

    I had to reinstall before Windows 7 would 'see' it. My Windows 7 seems unpredictably slow at times and I suspect Panda.

    Summary

    I replaced my long-time favorite Avast with the Panda Cloud and will keep it until I find Panda guilty of a crime or misdemeanor. I think the concept is cool and it doesn't surprise me that there are a few adjustments that need to be made. I am a careful user and have had surprisingly few antivirus problems ever despite fanatical computer use and a publicly posted email address for decades, so Panda has an easy job and I expect it to fulfill its purpose.

    Silent and effective; what more can you ask for? Well, more. I use other security products to make sure it's working. But just shutting up and doing it's duty? I can't complain much about that after using it for several months. It seems to have a very light footprint.

    Incoherent.

    I am still using Panda and don't understand why everyone isn't. It hasn't caused me any problems and seems to me to be the easiest antivirus program I've ever used -- and I've used a lot of them, including those from Symantec, Trend, McAffee, Avast, etc. This is the winner, for me.
