    "Panda Free Antivirus"

    July 22, 2015  |   By hunter1127

    Version: Panda Free Antivirus 15.1.0

    Pros

    Found stuff that Avast and AVG Robo scan missed Panda found 8 Virus files that the others missed so if you need a good antivirus then Panda will do the job that the others miss.and yes i tried all of them and only one could find anything. Give it a try and see if it will do the job for you that others can't.

    Cons

    None That I can find.

    Summary

    Should be #1 on the list

    "Simple, Light and Effective"

    July 11, 2015  |   By Batchoy2

    Version: Panda Free Antivirus 15.1.0

    Pros

    - Feature rich free AV
    - Easy to use
    - Light on resources
    - Works well with Zone Alarm Free Firewall
    - No issues even when you still use XP

    Cons

    - Occasionally, there is a pop-up upgrade reminder but not too annoying really.

    Summary

    Panda is as light, quiet and effective as MSE. Highly recommended!

    "Interface is cute, but not the gray screen at start up"

    July 4, 2015  |   By anongooduser

    Version: Panda Free Antivirus 15.1.0

    Pros

    Nice interface
    Easy to use

    Cons

    Lenovo pc hangs at gray screen upon start up
    Not as many features as some others

    Summary

    It was a nice thought, being able to get rid of mcafee that was preinstalled. Unfortunately, for my lenovo g50, the software was less than satisfactory. Uninstalled, and now I'm using Avira free. No gray screen yet. If you're looking at Panda, give it a try, see if it works for you. Just didn't work for me.

    "fair and decent"

    June 26, 2015  |   By MATT SLATTERY

    Version: Panda Free Antivirus 15.1.0

    Pros

    easy to use not perfect but still detects where some may miss.

    Cons

    Never encountered any

    Summary

    I have 3 different AV programs since not one Av will catch every thing. My primary is Comodo's Internet Security Panda and as a last ditch effort Vipre rescue scanner.
    I have had Avast where you have install an uninstaller just to remove the program. AVG blocks even those programs that are legit. and a lot of others give little to no true protection until after the infection unless bought full version.
    Panda is a decent free and trustworthy AV. It will not interfere with other AV. Never had any problem install or any infection from installing. If you are concerned about infection of installing a program then you whould not use a thrid party site such as this or any other. Rather you should go to the manufacture's sight and see if they have a direct download. Then you can be more certain of a clean installation.

    "Excellent free AV."

    May 17, 2015  |   By kentfelks12

    Version: Panda Free Antivirus 15.1.0

    Pros

    This ...I find is a ace free AV. I personally think it should be ahead of AVG FREE ....I switched to it long ago and have not looked back since. Some one mentioned Avg pegs it as a trogan.....well it is no doubt a false positive on AVG 's part.....anyone knows you should not have two anti viruses at on your PC at same time?? I run Panda along side with malewarebytes and superantispyware for added protection and have had no probs whatsoever....panda has picked up and gotten rid of unwanted apps without any problem....I think this AV is highly underrated.....Avast may have the a slight edge on Panda.......but as Isaid Panda runs well with other security apps...

    Cons

    none that I have seen

    Summary

    Said it all above
