Editors' Review

+

The Panda USB Vaccine is an application that protects your computer against vicious malware by vaccinating potential threats. It's an easy and fast way to keep your computer safe and working.

There really isn't much to this USB drive vaccine. We were pleased to find that it not only has an option for USB Vaccination, but also Computer Vaccination. For each option it lists an explanation of the process behind vaccination and what it involves. You know what and why it vaccinates before you decide to even use it. You can setup this utility to automatically scan and clean any USB when it is plugged into the computer, or manually direct it to do so. The vaccination process was very quick for both the computer and USB. You can remove the vaccination from your computer as well, if you decide that you don't really need it. For more details and information, you can go to the Help page. There isn't much listed, but it does cover more concerning what the utility is for and what it really does. Overall, it's a very simple and useful utility that doesn't take up much of your time.

Downloading and setting up the Panda USB Vaccine was very easy. You can even have it start up with your computer and run automatically. There didn't seem to be any issues or glitches when we went through the download process. It will most likely download well on any PC, as far as we know.

"No exFAT support"

September 30, 2013  |  By Yowanvista

 |  Version: Panda USB Vaccine 1.0.1.4

Pros

None, didn't work on exFAT drives

Cons

It's funny because AV vendors still think that we all use FAT32 on 4GB+ drives.

Summary

Don't waste your time on something that won't even work with exFAT.

"THERE IS SOME RISK"

April 20, 2012  |  By LavaFlash

 |  Version: Panda USB Vaccine 1.0.1.4

Pros

It was free. Stops autorun on your computer, and USB flash drives MOST OF THE TIME.

Cons

Panda usb vaccine disabled the autorun feature, but malware got onto another computer before Panda worked. Ultimately, a message popped up from Panda usb vaccine saying that some file couldn't be loaded. For two days I had to launch all applications from task manager. Finally I got more time and just started shutting everything down accept for "critical system processes." As soon as I shut down panda usb vaccine, all of my desktop icons reappeared (I had tried shutting down and restarting explorer, it didn't work). Also, I had one flash drive that Panda couldn't immunize.

Summary

The program has the benefit of disabling autorun on your computer and your flash drives. However, reading all of the reviews, plus with my own experience, I would say that there is a glitch in the software.

"Not Much Good After-The-Fact"

March 19, 2012  |  By biggens21

 |  Version: Panda USB Vaccine 1.0.1.4

Pros

Free. It did disable autorun on my flash drives and my computer.

Cons

I immunized my computer, then plugged in a flash drive I thought might be corrupt. Panda popped up to ask me if I wanted to immunize the drive, I clicked on immunize and Panda USB Vaccine did its thing. However, before it disabled autorun the virus slipped right past Panda and Avast and installed itself. I've tried eveything from Norton to F-secure to remove it, nothing works.

Summary

It isn't much good if it disables autorun after the virus has already installed itself.
