I have not tried this program but nonetheless thankful to the makers for offering their work here for free , thanks very much ,at the same time i wonder if there others that think like me that this type of program and anti virus as a whole has seen better days and is now pass their ‘sell-by date’ ,I am using a popular one and at every turn it is offering to further protect me from some threat even when i visit my bank site on line they have everything built in updating themselves every day and sending info back from our systems that we dont know about, once we had to have a strong firewall but now every school kid can get around a firewall without problems , not to mention the government who secretly install programs on our computers that cannot be detected by these programs .Do we really need them still ??Mar 26, 2018 at 4:23 am #10728702
I still use and recommend Panda Free for four reasons:
1. Still tops AV tests
3. Minimal-to-zero false positives
4. No nags!
It’s not a one-hit-wonder/pump-and-dump deal; it’s been consistent and reliable for a few years at least.
I use a 1-year giveaway AVG on my sheep-dip VM and it still nags (even though it’s a paid product) and has problems with false positives. Yes, it’s avast! with a different skin now. Like avast!, I probably won’t use the full year–it’s that much of a nuisance. (I’ve used avast! for years in the past and it’s software I want to like but not so anymore.)Mar 26, 2018 at 5:44 am #10729306
Concorrente forte do Kaspersky que eu usava, testando o Panda, até o momento o melhor, leve, fácil a configuração. Parabéns e continuem a nos dar brinde de assinaturas o que é melhor ainda.Mar 26, 2018 at 7:40 am #10730032
I have used Panda Free in the past and one of the reasons I stopped using it was the constant popups – at least one when I started up my computer and one during the course of the day. I would love to hear how to stop those popups/nags.
I am a little confused as to how this Panda Dome compares with Panda Free and Panda Paid.
I see it is only good for six months.
Honestly, for AV I find the Windows Defender that comes with Windows 10 is sufficient for my needs. I have been using it for awhile now. I guess if you use your computer for work or have sensitive, important data on it, you might need more, but I am OK with Defender. I do use malwarebytes and Win Patrol suite as well though.Mar 26, 2018 at 8:55 am #10730487
Regarding free anti-virus nowadays, most users will not pay up for the “paid-for” version, so the developers have come up with new ways of making money from these products, by doing such simple things as changing your browser’s start page, adding browser toolbars, and hijacking your preferred search engine to adding in their own tracking software to monitor and collect data that they can re-sell for even more money.
Some of the ones we used to consider our favorites have turned on us. It is better these days to invest in a decent anti-badware that does only that, defend us from the bad guys.
I read an article recently that was published in June 2015, titled, “Beware, free antivirus isn’t really free anymore.” It did help drive the point home. The article is at how-to-geek.com: <link>https://www.howtogeek.com/218675/beware-free-antivirus-isnt-really-free-anymore/</link>Mar 26, 2018 at 8:58 am #10730509
Oops; I failed to do the link to that article correctly. This one should work:

>I am a little confused as to how this Panda Dome compares with Panda Free and Panda Paid.
For a long time, Panda promoted its “Panda Internet Security” product. The “Dome” product is the replacement for that product (Panda Internet Security URL redirects to the Dome line). The “Panda Free” is now an edition of the Dome product, but missing a couple bullet items. The Free does not have support (Standard technical support via phone, email, chat, Web, and forum), and it is not for “All of your devices” (Advanced protection for all your devices). Those two bullet items are available on the four “paid” editions, starting with this offer, “Essential,” and continuing on with Advanced, Complete, and Premium editions. The comparison chart I found is at https://www.pandasecurity.com/usa/homeusers/solutions/free-antivirus/
This new Dome product line appears to be more encompassing, including having a VPN and sync data with the Cloud, which I do not recall being in the Panda Internet Security line, although they could have been in the later incarnations just before they came out with the Dome series.Mar 26, 2018 at 10:24 am #10730984
To itself it is quite quite good, but… there are vendors which as on me, it is much better than what has been presented.Mar 26, 2018 at 1:46 pm #10732150
Non funziona, l’ho installato e disinstallato per ben tre volte sempre con molta difficolta’, ogni volta mi chiedeva il riavvio per ottimizzarlo cosa che ho fatto per moltissime volte senza risultato, ogni volta la musica era la stessa “riavviare” fino a che mi sono rotto e l’ho disinstallato. buona serata a tutti voiMar 26, 2018 at 10:17 pm #10734541
