Was confusing to activate. Instructions aren’t clear to me. It says to follow the onscreen instructions, but there really aren’t any. I clicked on the main screen where the Antivirus was indicating that it wasn’t working, and get message “Activate” I click on that button and it tells me “Generic Error.” I click on the link for more info that appears below that error message and it takes me to the panda site which has no information on a “Generic Error.” At first, I didn’t know either it doesn’t like my system or I’m doing something wrong. Then all of a sudden the red x on Protected went away. It said I had 5 days to activate. I clicked on the My Products button, a different Activate button appears there. I click on it, and it prompts me for an email address. I now have 180 days.

I think it worked in the end, but it was not clear at all what to do, and the repeated “Generic Error” message was not helpful. I think Panda 2016 is not quite ready for prime time. I am still figuring out where to upgrade to 2017 using the update feature in the software. I haven’t found the update feature mentioned in the SharewareOnSale listing.
