It's one of the life's three big questions - which Internet Security to have (the others being How do I connect my second PC to the Internet, and which Digital Camera to buy). How shallow can you get?
I got all three solutions from Amazon. So, to Panda... you get comprehensive protection for your PC. The install is fairly simple (but you must uninstall your old protection first, which is likely to be Norton).
Panda found 27 virus/trojans on my PC on first run (but my Norton was old and out of date so no surprise), and it offers choices for dealing with them.
It quickly & silently gets daily updates from the Panda website, without fuss, giving you up to date protection.
Mine spots about two "port scanning" incidents per day, and confirms a blocking action. You feel like you're under fire !!!
It does have an "update done" daily pop-up to you that you cannot avoid, but this is no trouble. Unless you reboot each day (and home users would normally not reboot from week to week, yes?) you avoid the "connected" pop-up.
By default it puts mail from "unknown" sources into SPAM folder (but you can easily uncheck this facility unless you really want to manually set up "lists" of good mail sources).
So all OK. Except - a warning !! At install time, Panda apparantly emptied my inbox completely, and those mails are nowhere to be found. Panda Support have had a week to offer a plausible explanation, but have not done so. It could be an amazing coincidence, but I suggest you ensure your inbox is empty when installing Panda.
Oh, and I had a curious incident where having formally registered myself as a UK user, in my first email to Panda Support I accidently checked my country as "Uraguay", after which all Panda websites appeared to me in Spanish but just for about 30 minutes. So, er, watch your language.
