"Worst crap software i've ever installed."

October 01, 2016  |  By heil_Argentina

 |  Version: Panda Free Antivirus 17.0




Right after i installed panda, i lost my internet connection
tried everything to fix it with no luck.
I had to google with my cell phone for a full hour to seek for help, i went to every forum, and after 1hs of reading and reading, i came to a common solution "uninstall that crap!".
they don't even have a solution for this in their own forum, and i've seen that there's people with the same problem as mine since 2005 versions...
So my advice, and i'm very serious about it, is to don't even try it, because an antivirus that gives you more trouble than a virus is not worth the try.
Right after i uninstalled it, i were still unable to access to internet, so to fix it i had to run a system restore...
This is the worst thing that happened to my computer EVER EVER EVER!


I don't understand how this crap is in the top 11 softwares of
And obviously the top list is not to trust.

""Uninstalled because of intrusive popup ads""

Seems nice, but didn't fix my issue


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.


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"

Very light on resources.
From everything I've read on the'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.


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.


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.
