    "Excellent light antivirus"

    October 23, 2014  |   By derekmski

    Version: Panda Free Antivirus 15.0.1

    Pros

    Super lightweight, easy to use, fast scans

    Cons

    Has an occasional popup asking to upgrade to the pro version, bugs you to create an account now.

    Summary

    This is my favorite free antivirus, check avcomparatives, Panda is one of the top antiviruses. Not only does it have top scores and protect very well, it's super light and takes hardly any resources, you don't even know it's there! Highly recommend over all the other freebies out there, and trust me I've tried them all. You won't be disappointed in Panda Cloud.

    "Para mi ordenador personal es perfecto"

    October 17, 2014  |  

    Version: Panda Free Antivirus 15.0.1

    Pros

    Me protege de cualquier páginas que visito, algunas dudosas y me siento tranquila.
    Es muy intuitivo, entiendo el manejo sin meter la para dándole a lo que no debo...
    Ligero!

    Cons

    Sus actualizaciones y noticias sobre producto

    Summary

    Para un usuario que tenga un uso normal del ordenador, a nivel persona, queda cubierto y puede controlar el programa sin tener un master en el tema.

    Updated on Oct 17, 2014

    Si haces un uso personal de tu ordenador, te lo recomiendo porque vas a estar cubierto. Para manejarlo no hace ser un master del tema, lo cual facilita tener el control de las cosas ;)

    "Came with malware that couldn't be removed!!"

    September 6, 2014  |   By xixii

    Version: Panda Free Antivirus 15.0.1

    Pros

    Easy to install

    Cons

    Installed malware on my computer that couldn't be removed until I got rid of Panda.

    Summary

    I got a new windows 8 laptop a few months ago and was just using MSE until I installed an av. Read cnet's lastest 2014 comparison and they tied panda with avg for #1. I chose to install panda since I'd used avg previously and wanted to try something different. Had no issues with viruses or malware (already had malware bytes which never found anything in their scans) on my new laptop or previous one with avg installed. A few days after installing Panda av, I noticed these popups on Amazon, Target and other shopping websites with 'similar deals around the web' and links to external sites. I could not permanently remove these popups but stayed away from clicking them. I googled the issue and found it was called Superfish Window Shopper, which can give you a virus depending on where the links go. Sure enough I ran a malware bytes scan and now it found 2 issues related to Superfish. Did a quarantine and rebooted, but Superfish was still on the machine. Tried a couple more removal suggestions, but they didn't work. I then realized this started when I installed Panda, so I uninstalled and now it's gone. Sticking with what works, AVG.

    "The interface is a deal breaker for me."

    August 27, 2014  |   By Son_of_Earth

    Version: Panda Free Antivirus 15.0.1

    Pros

    One of the best av's around.

    Cons

    The interface is a little ****.

    Summary

    Installed it, saw the interface and uninstalled it. What a little ****.

    Updated on Oct 26, 2014

    Ok. I gave it a second chance. Had it running for 2 days before I found out it couldn't detect my internet connection. This is absolutely unacceptable for an av that prides itself for being a cloud av. Major mega FAIL! You've been fired from humanity. Minus 5 stars.
