    "Stay away from this AV,"

    January 3, 2013  |   By tincan_96

    Pros

    Automatic updates

    Cons

    Does not stop viruses.
    Tech support is worthless.

    Summary

    I installed Panda Cloud AV Pro. I found two infected files during it's initial scan. I called Panda tech support who directed me to a another company that charged me $130 to clean my system. Within a month my system began running slow, so I ran the virus scan and it showed up clean -- no infected files. So, I uninstalled Panda and installed Avast Free AV. Avast's intitial scan found and removed NINE infected files. I called Panda Tech Support to report the findings and their responce was "well, we can't stop everything!" HUH!?

    Yeah, it's not some kind of time machine, where you can hop in your little DeLoreon and go back to the year 1955 to retroactively fix your ate-up PC by magic and punch out Biff at the Enchantment Under the Sea dance. Your system is infected. This has nothing to do with Panda and everything to do with you. They are right; they can't stop everything. PS - you might want to check again, I seriously doubt those infected files have been removed, but you'll figure this out again when your system starts running slow again. Meanwhile, figure out what you're talking about before you review something!
