"the absolute worse"

January 11, 2013  |  By letitfly

 |  Version: Panda Internet Security 2012

Pros

none at all. complex and does not work. They have no tech support. The link doesn't even work.

Cons

this is simple, have had panda for about to months, updates daily. I scan daily. I have had nothing but trojans and malware since buying panda. I got by for 20 years ith no viruses until I installed this junk.

Summary

do not buy it.

"A must-have for a jam-packed system."

July 19, 2011  |  By Kim-Myers

 |  Version: Panda Internet Security 2012

Pros

Easy to use, light on system resources, very informative about the nature of attacks and infections, and can stop dangerous actions w/o any interference with what you're doing. Run other security programs simultaneously; Panda doesn't mind.

Cons

It's slow on a jam-packed laptop, if you're sharing files and need a thorough scan each time. It can take as long as 24 hours.

Summary

If you put aside 24 hours for your scan, and run all your security programs at once, Panda will do just fine and catch almost everything. It's wise to have Malaware Anti-Malware and Spybot also, because they usually catch things the others miss. You probably can add other cloud-based (or "light") programs to the mix, and Panda will be just fine. It's for free and effective, which is the main thing. Everything else, I can work around.

"One of the best."

June 03, 2011  |  By Nortonpal

 |  Version: Panda Internet Security 2012

Pros

High level of protection of the computer from various threats.Fast cloudy scanning.Good work in Windows 7.I'ts not revealed conflicts to other programs.The majority of options are convenient for use.

Cons

Firewall it's a little braked.Some options are thought insufficiently over.

Summary

I periodically used Panda's products since 2008 ( Internet Security 2008,2009,2010,2011).All versions of this program provided high level of protection of the computer.But if in 2008 and 2009 I could name Panda the best program of safety (along with Norton) in 2010 and 2011 its work has worsened.I will not write about some conflicts which I have found out in Panda 2010 and 2011.Now it has no value.However I want to ascertain - in the new version all defects are corrected.The program works quickly and reliably. But it has some inconveniences in options.Some options are complicated (but are all the same clear) or have no convenient and necessary possibilities.It concerns works with the found out wreckers. Sometimes a bit braked work of firewall disturbs to access to the network of some programs.But it occurs only in work to individual adjustment and few programs (for example Adobe Update).Basically program options are clear and convenient. For example management of the planned tasks is adjusted simply and not included by default.(that you will not tell about persistence Norton in this mode).
My subjective opinion: the design of the program is a little obsolete,I am bothered with a window with the offer to buy the program, it appears each time at program opening (in trial mode),the program has some excessive functions.
I would state estimation Panda IS 2012 in five stars.But on set of factors this program concedes McAfee, Norton and ingenious in its reasonableness F-Secure.
