""Uninstalled because of intrusive popup ads""

September 23, 2016  |  By Taylorminaj1

2016-09-23 08:32:57  |  By Taylorminaj1

 |  Version: Panda Free Antivirus 17.0

Pros

Seems nice, but didn't fix my issue

Cons

Popup ads that hijack any window you are watching or typing in. Even if you're playing a game, AVG ads will force minimize your game to look at the stupid ad. I got tired of it and uninstalled it just now.

Summary

Basically, it doesn't work or do anything. Didn't used to be like this. Way too many, intrusive ads now. but my husband said me to use Akick Total Security with the free version and it's really works without any popups or update to buy our software.

"It's what I'm using"

August 28, 2016  |  By Bighugs1965

 |  Version: Panda Free Antivirus 17.0

Pros

Very light on resources.
From everything I've read on the web...it's very good and comparable to many paid products.
If under settings you disable Show Panda News then this is almost completely silent and very unobtrusive. You may forget it's even there.
It auto updates it's virus defs and the software itself.
It has scheduling functions for routine scans.
It has a few extras like USB monitoring and a process monitor. The process monitor can also scan any HTTP connections those processes may access.
I have had no conflicts with using other security related software while running Panda.
The setup is straight forward and relatively quick.

Cons

Scheduled scanning functions are a bit limited and speed somewhat slower than some competitors'..
As an example...if you miss a scheduled scan it won't try again until the next scheduled scan. There is no try again ASAP option.

Summary

I really like Panda for all the reasons stated above. Other reasons are low false positives and ease of use. I still miss the auto scan of Bitdefender free but unfortunately they do not offer a free version for Windows 10. So far I found Panda to be the best free antivirus solution for Windows 10. Until I find better, it's what I'm using.
