    "Good Product but missing ...."

    August 27, 2015  |   By ProudFather2006

    Version: Panda Free Antivirus 2016

    Pros

    The cleaned virus added porn images to our family PC. The last thing I want is my 9 yr old to stumble upon such images. I used a software called 'Porn Terminator' (available on CNET) to scan, detect & delete the porn images. Their website: http://www.pornterminator.com

    Cons

    "Errors on the right side of prudence"

    August 25, 2015  |   By jpmdns

    Version: Panda Free Antivirus 2016

    Pros

    Easy install . . . clean and easy-to-use interface..... cloud based technology will block many items that 'may' be harmful, which some may find inconvenient..

    Cons

    Customer Service / Support Line need to be vastly improved ! Annoying pop-up ads
    should be eliminated : there are much better way the company could/should use to promote their product(s.

    "DO NOT USE, BLOCKS LEGITIMATE PROGRAMS AND DELETES THEM"

    August 24, 2015  |   By MissSD

    Version: Panda Free Antivirus 2016

    Pros

    NONE, I THINK IT WAS WHAT WAS MAKING WINDOWS 10 ACT SLOW AND FREEZE SINCE INSTALLATION, AFTER I THOUGHT IT HAD FIXED ALL THE BUGS

    Cons

    Returned to Windows 7 and reinstalled Panda, it immediately told me there was a virus in IE which I never use and had to shut down, Upon restart in deleted my Chrome, I downloaded the install via Firefox (which Panda must have neutralized), it would not move past downloading, tried to update Microsoft Essentials would not complete update, tried to get into programs and it froze, End up having to manual Hard close the system. Went into safemode, deleted Panda and all associated programs. Retried to install chrome with same download NOT, deleted and re-download a new one, immediately went through. Essentials updated in seconds.

    Summary

    I REPEAT DO NOT USE THIS PROGRAM!!!

    "Best Free Antivirus"

    August 21, 2015  |   By Ste_H

    Version: Panda Free Antivirus 2016

    Pros

    Does not freeze Firefox, like avast kept doing before I binned it
    No annoying pop-ups (disable 'Panda news' in the settings)
    Easy to use, install and forget

    Cons

    By default, it installs the anti-phishing toolbar and sets Yahoo as your search, if you don't pay attention and disable these before you install.
    There's a slight delay and jitteriness when you open/browse the interface

    "not a good choice"

    August 20, 2015  |   By iamveritas

    Version: Panda Free Antivirus 2016

    Pros

    compared with the other free AVs there's really nothing to say here

    Cons

    not user friendly
    blocks lots of good clean apps claiming they harm you; very frustrating
    pops way too many times to ask you to get the paid version, very aggressive, rude and frustrating of course
    should I say more? :)

    Summary

    I give them 1 star actually; they block quite a few apps which are 100% clean; they caused me a lot of trouble; I had no choice but to uninstall them and go for a different AV. I actually wrote them and their answer was actually showing they are not professionals, not really understanding the products they ban yet claiming they do and left no room for learning from one that was willing to explain lots of things they did not get.

    "Good Anti-virus"

    August 15, 2015  |   By IceTheNet

    Version: Panda Free Antivirus 2016

    Pros

    Works Good Lightweight Kills the viruses others missed

    Cons

    Here is where we loose stars:
    1.) Customer Service (Worse than Gateway).
    2.) Support Online
    3.) Pop-Up advertising (I can't say enough about this practice but please stop)
    Really I would buy your product but the adds are a turn off and I would rather install another free solution than purchase your product because you have shown me that that you care little about me as a customer and are greedy. So no sale here !! and a three star deduction for the cons

    Summary

    I use it it works if they fix the customer service support and advertising I would consider purchasing this product. I have called them before and they are some of the rudest arse's I have ever had the displeasure of meeting. Unfortunate because they have one of the best products on the market.
