"Great free anti virus!!"

February 13, 2016  |  By martysally

2016-02-13 07:18:39  |  By martysally

 |  Version: Panda Free Antivirus 2016

Pros

Panda Free is an "on access" real time scanner. This means that it doesn't slow down computer during normal use by having to scan every file. It only kicks in when a file is accessed, or launched. This allows for faster everyday operation of computer, while not sacrificing overall security. Panda takes a while to load on computer start up because it starts very early in Windows boot up. This enables it to catch malicious programs before Windows has time to launch them.Launch of interface is slowed somewhat because it must load it's version of a "process explorer". The more processes you have running, the slower the launch of interface.

Cons

The only "con" is Panda is not real adept at detecting "PUP's" (possibly unwanted programs". Also the occasional pop ups to advertise "Pro version" ; which can be turned off by un-ticking "Panda News" on general settings page.

Summary

Overall, a GREAT free antivirus offering!! Try it,and you can uninstall it if you, for some reason, don't like it. Really requires no intervention by user; a "set it and forget it" antivirus option with very high detection rates.

"Good Free AV"

January 10, 2016  |  By TrioBrothers

2016-01-10 17:35:24  |  By TrioBrothers

 |  Version: Panda Free Antivirus 2016

Pros

- Effective, fast, light on resources. Used it to replace my previously loved Avast and Avira Free AV on several machines.

Cons

- During test, it missed detection of PUPs which other malware detected, when the apps were run using DVD discs

Summary

- Will need to disable to Panda news in Settings else you may be greeted with pop-ups appearing at the side panel
