    "Does slow browser"

    September 15, 2013  |   By Johnny_S

    Pros

    Install was simply, did not require a lot of choices.

    Cons

    By default it wants to install toolbar, search defaults.
    Does seem to cause browser to hang while it checks a site.

    Summary

    After having a mess with Microsoft's Security Essentials. Having several rootkits it never found. I had to try a different solutions. Panda seem like a choice I had tried before and thought I would try again. So far my biggest complaint is that it causes IE 10 to pause when loading some web sites. I suspect this is a scanning feature to check a web site through the cloud with Panda.

    well, mse doesn't actually scan any webpages or check urls. it only scans downloads. its easy to look light, if you're not doing anything.

    Try disabling URL MONITOR, you can find the toggle by going to PROCESSES in the main window.
