    "cannot activate"

    February 16, 2015  |   By abchak1

    Version: Panda Free Antivirus 15.0.4

    Pros

    none that I can see...

    Cons

    Downloaded this today... I can't even get this program fully started up. I get the following error: "Error activating the product" "Generic error" "To be properly protected you need to activate Panda Free Antivirus. Otherwise, it will stop protecting you in 4 days." Clicking "Help about this problem (1 - 0)" brings me to a page in Spanish... Seriously? Restarting doesn't help. I had hopes for Panda after reading reviews for many similar programs, but I've got to uninstall. Worthless.

    Summary



    Updated on Feb 16, 2015

    It did let me activate after turning off Norton Antivirus. We'll see how using the program goes now that I can actually use it.

    "Has no one noticed?"

    February 10, 2015  |  

    Version: Panda Free Antivirus 15.0.4

    Pros

    It has a cute name and must have been good at one time.

    Cons

    I know my stuff. Little tricks to get you to agree to download toolbars, make a new home page ext.....I was careful and I got slammed with trackers, malware you name it. Took me my whole Saturday to fix my computer.

    Summary

    I guess if you don't have the right software you wouldn't notice how much junk and spy ware is put on your computer.......that is until it slows and slows then crashes....good luck.

    "Wonderful Antivirus and Malware fighter"

    January 25, 2015  |   By fredg06

    Version: Panda Free Antivirus 15.0.4

    Pros

    Only uses 1/3 the CPU usuage of memory as Avast in my 2000 Dell older computer, with 256 meg RAM, XP, and SP3.
    It updates itself as soon as anything is added to the cloud at the website, not taking hardly any of my resources to do it.

    Cons

    None as yet

    Summary

    Panda uses 11,000 k of memory resources, whereas Avast was using 39,000k !!
    Panda also can be scheduled for scans, like once a week at 2 am. I also unchecked the toolbar part that has been mentioned before, and uncheck two other selections before installing began. I have had no problem with any other programs being installed with Panda Free.

    Once in a while an "Upgrade to Pro" pop-up ad appears but it's very insignificant.

    "Contains malware which collect webbrowsing information"

    December 18, 2014  |   By scrottan

    Version: Panda Free Antivirus 15.0.4

    Pros

    Free
    Decent speed

    Cons

    Installs malware
    As a part of the installation it install the malware Visicom disguised/part of "Panda Security toolbar 4.2". Visicom is then installed as a part of your webbrowser and collects information for ad purposes. You will noticed that you get more popups on stores which have items you searched on. Google, Amazon also have methods to collect ad information, but the difference here is that Panda installs this ad collecting program without mentioning it.
    For more information on viscom see; http://www.shouldiremoveit.com/Panda-Security-Toolbar-10348-program.aspx
