    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.

    I installed Panda in my windows 10 x64 system. Some components of Panda were detected as malware by Zemana AntiLogger.
    Panda affected the behavior of memory sticks (pen drives). I am no longer able to use my U3 memory stick, I removed Panda, but the problem stands. At the uninstalling, Panda tried to run many .EXE with strange names (au_.exe; du_.exe; cu_.exe; etc.), all detected as malware by Zemana AntiLogger. I had to run the external uninstaller tool (provided by Panda) to remove it. I tried to speak with the support regarding the memory stick problem, but they refused saying I do not have a “customer number”.
    I cannot recommend this product.

    I have followed the instructions to activate, but I cannot activate. I get an error message
    Generic error Help about this problem.
    But when I click the link for getting help, nothing happens.

    I like Panda because it does not slow the computer down.
    However after installing I got a 1-month Trial period and not 6.
    Has something changed perhaps since this offer was advertised?

    Hi Gramor. :-)

    It seems this offer is still active.
    But: “If you have used Panda Internet Security in the past, then you might not be able to install an extended trial and thus won’t be able to get this freebie.”.

    You are saying that this Internet Security 2017. But the truth is that this is Internet Security 2016. Something went wrong.
