"Slow slower slowest"

November 15, 2012  |  By NimeCloud

 |  Version: Panda Antivirus Pro 2012 12

Pros

Nothing. I used other products and there are better options.

Cons

I've bought & installed 40 pieces Panda Antivirus Pro 2012 at our office. Then complaints just begun, people told me that AV slows their computers. At the end I removed my av and installed Panda AV Pro 2013. Viola. They are right, Panda made my PC slow & unresponsive, it takes minutes to boot. Task Manager starts in 5 seconds. New commandline window opens in 16 seconds. Al I see is blue spinning circle.

It also displays a dialog box and asks for registration. I already entered the serial and verified during the install. Should I register all those 40 PCs one by one? That's crazy. All I can do is remind me in a month. No option for "do not ask again".

I tried both 2012 and 2013 versions. Panda Security really really needs good UI designers.

Sorry I can't test it as antivirus and I can't give you any idea if it scans good or not. Because my PC is slow at the moment. It's a torture to browsing internet and network folders too, because of non-responsive Explorer.

Summary

Try before buy is a must.

"Very Bad product.Literally brought my Dell XPS to halt."

August 04, 2012  |  By sumitgogna

 |  Version: Panda Antivirus Pro 2012 12

Pros

No advantage found.

Cons

Make system slow and non responding. I thing firewall is main culprit.

Summary

I got a 1 year pro activation key from CNET give-out last month. I installed it first in my XP machine and it got slow. I thought may be it is incompatible with old machines. Then I installed it in my Dell XPS, i7, 6GB RAM, Windows 7 Premium laptop and after installation, it got so slow. each Alt+Crt+Del was not responding. I tried to reinstall but same thing. I tried to download Avast from net, but connection kept on breaking and system hanged in between. Somehow I was able to remove it. Uninstalling told 30 mins because system was super slow.
Then I downloaded Avast and installed. Now my system is back to normal.
I have used MSE, avast and Kaspersky on my laptop before but never got this problem.

"the upgrade is a disaster"

May 31, 2012  |  By mystupidity

 |  Version: Panda Antivirus Pro 2012 12

Pros

Thepgradere are no pros to this upgrade

Cons

the original Panda Cloud Pro was a neat little antivirus program that did what it was supposed to do with no fuss. Like an idiot I bought the new version. Not only does it not tell you what it deleated or why...but why in hell did they add games and an onscreen keyboard? Now I have to wait 6 months to get rid of it (although I certainly won't use it) and wound up with another prorgam.

"Panda is a virus itself - dangerous - stay away - run"

December 19, 2011  |  By tangenef

 |  Version: Panda Antivirus Pro 2012 12

Pros

Absolutely none

Cons

Panda is worse than bad it is dangerous - stay away - run

The product is unstable - needs constant re-installment. It is a virus itself - the worst virus I have ever experienced
The most disgraceful aspect is after uninstalling the program is leaves traces that stop you accessing the internet. The computer repair shop who sold me this louse program said they could not undo the damage Panda had done to my machine. I had to have the hard disc re-formatted

Summary

I have written to the company about the above matters - surprise, no answer
The company should be sued - if there are others out there who have had a similar experience - let others know.
STAY AWAY from this Spanish plague
