    "Serious install problems!"

    July 17, 2012  |   By ritchie58

    Pros

    Can't say. Wouldn't install properly.

    Cons

    Did not install properly. No GUI.

    Summary

    After attempting to upgrade to the new 2.0 version and using the bootstrapper installer the System Tray icon appeared normally but clicking on the icon the GUI would not load and the program would crash. So I uninstalled and tried to reinstall with the same results. I went to their support forum and downloaded the offline installer and ran that. This time there was no System Tray icon and the program will not load at all. Uninstalled and installed AVG instead. If you have the older version? Keep it and don't try to install this version! OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

    Hi Ritchie, I had similar problems with Panda disabling System Restore and messing up the system. You now know better not to mess with this C*** again!!!!!! I am surprised that a system backup could not restore your system, what brand are you using? I use Easeus Todo 4.5 which works well for me. As someone previously stated Panda is more of a Pig than a cute Panda.

    Now I have discovered there was Operating System Files corrupted by the installer that neither System Restore, System File Checker or a Backup Image can fix! Needless to say I'm not too happy with Panda at the moment!
