Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Platinum Internet Security is a revolutionary security solution that incorporates cutting-edge technology, which represents an important step in the fight against malware. It protects against any type of virus, which tries to infect your system, and it also prevents the different attacks which can come from the Internet: Trojans, worms, spam (unsolicited e-mail messages), intrusions, spyware (spy software), vulnerabilities, hoaxes (e-mail messages with misleading content about non-existent viruses), jokes (programs that simulate the destructive actions of viruses), etc.

It is characterized by its advanced technology (it incorporates the SmartClean2 scan engine), and extremely easy handling. Platinum Internet Security is an ideal solution, as it combines a powerful antivirus tool, firewall protection, anti-malware protection and an excellent suite of services.

Platinum Internet Security also checks continually the status of your computer, correcting those vulnerabilities which endanger the system's integrity and warns you when any of the applications you have installed implies a security risk.

4.0 out of 5 stars A viable alternative to NAV 7 Mar 2004
After the purchase of a new PC (P4 3.06Gb, 1Gb RAM, Win XP) I was in the market for a new antvirus program. I was initially going back to Norton whose product I had been using on my old Win 98 machine. However, I found numerous dubious reviews on the web regarding system problems with XP (though to be fair just about every other AV suite had similar or other worrying reports from some individuals). Anyway, it prompted me to look at other, comparable products. It all seemed a bit of a gamble to be honest. Anyway, in the end I opted for Panda due to a couple of favourable reviews, and this package, which handily replaced my freebie firewall as well as offering anti spam and spyware protection, all for no more money than Norton AV (note that I purchased it 'used' from here (Amazon) at below 30).
After a few weeks I can say that it has performed very well. Performance hasn't visibly suffered and it seems to do the job pretty well running invisibly in the background. I had no installation problems either and it has all been, thankfully, painless.
I would say that the user interface is not the best - there are too many methods to do the same thing, but then many windows programs exhibit this problem in my opinion. I do like the continuous updates and it doesn't seem to slow down my dial up browsing either which is surprising. The AV found a macro virus that NAV never found, the firewall has been flawless and invisible and the anti spam etc. I assume do their thing as I don't get prompted by them. Which is the way I like it. Apart from the 'not so intuitive interface' the only other negative is a bug which causes a small Panda message ocassionally telling me that I need to register to receive updates. Although I have done so and receive updates fine.

This is the most amazing secuity suite I have used.
It detects over 68,000 viruses, quickly and non-intrusivly, with a lovely stylish pop-up: Virus Neutrilized! the slides from the system tray.
The new interface is clean and easy, with a new feature that scans the programs files for missing .dlls, or corrupted program files. This is known as the auto-diagnosis feature. It means that the virus scanner is always working to the best of its ability, no downtime.
This wondeful install and forget solution, offers daily updates to the virus, content filtering, spyware, dialer, spam database. Its expanded threat detection means you and your family are protected against new threats that could harm your computer, such as Jokes, Hack tools, etc. It also protects against: spam, hackers, dialers and spyware.
The virus scanner quickly and throughly scans the whole system on demand for any viruses and threats that may exist, removing them. Using its real-time protection it can remove viruses before infection, even spyware or other threats - all automatically.
Includes a fantastic feature that warns you about windows updates yuo need to install. Warns proactivly about HIGH RISK viruses in a small non-intrusive pop-up that slides from the system tray.
Minimal system resources are used during scanning.
Includes e-mail scanning for spam and spyware. Its nice e-mail scanning warns of possible viruses such as incorrect MIME headers, .exe other dangerous files before mail is downloaded giving a option of remove, quarantine, leave, ask.
Suspicious file scanning.
Scans compressed file archives before you even open them , or download them.
Protects from hackers using state-of-the-art firewall.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but watch out !!! 2 Aug 2004
By Dervid
Verified Purchase
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.
