    "It's Crap! It didn't help me!"

    July 31, 2009  |   By Crappagio

    Version: Panda Anti-Rootkit 1.08

    Pros

    None! What more to say!

    Cons

    My computer has the "globalroot" "windowsclick" virus. This program did not locate it or eliminate it.

    Summary

    Try a different program. This one won't likely help. The one star rating is mandatory for the website.

    Version: Panda Anti-Rootkit 1.08

    Pros

    Easy install, quick scan runs quickly, does its job. In depth takes not much longer but may require a reboot before it is done.

    Cons

    Nothing, it appears to do its job with minimun fuss and bother.

    "GREAT ROOTKIT DETECTOR..BUT"

    April 13, 2009  |   By AshleyCartier10

    Version: Panda Anti-Rootkit 1.08

    Pros

    It's Free. Highly rated by industry testing sites. Very small. Easy to use. My experience is that it is a stable program.

    Cons

    First, anyone who complains about Panda Anti-Rootkit conflicting with Win Defender needs to wake up! What DOESN'T conflict with Defender!! This program, AVG, Norton, etc. Main Problem: Changes Internet settings in memory with In-depth scan.

    Summary

    I really liked this program's simplicity. A zip file you click on and use On-Demand. Highly rated in industry tests for accuracy. I found it to be a stable program.
    However, after running a standard scan, I thought I would try the in-depth scan. i clicked on it and rebooted as instructed. It found no rootkits, no surprise. However, when I closed the program and went to launch explorer, my firewall popped up and said that my Internet settings in memory had been changed by Panda so Panda could always seek updates. I was mad. I denied the connection.
    Tried explorer again and the same thing happened. Then I tried Firefox. Same problem. It attatched itself to my internet connections and wouldn't let go. I deleted it. Took me 20 minutes to restore my ability to go on the net. That pissed me off. No simple free program should try to be a smart a$$ like that. I'll just stick with Avira Rootkit detection from now on. Please use Panda Anti-Rootkit for standard scans only. The in-depth scan isn't without a catch.

    "Horrible experience! Shame on Panda."

    November 24, 2008  |   By mikuei

    Version: Panda Anti-Rootkit 1.08

    Pros

    Liked nothing.

    Cons

    Refused to run, tried 7 - 8 times, hung each time, and several of those times I had to re-boot to get control back.

    Summary

    This isn't like the Panda of old days, what gives with them, I read other reviews, and other people had problems, some worse than my experience.
