Excellent product...as always.,
This review is from: Panda Global Protection 2011 Retail, 3 PC Protection (PC) (CD-ROM)
I've used Panda products from its various ranges since 2004 and still use "Pro" on my ancient old PC. However I bought a new laptop last year and it came with Kaspersky. Initially it seemed very similar to Panda...that was until I wanted to run a full scan! A full scan took nearly 6 hours!
As I approached the time to either renew that license or opt for a different product I decided to go for Panda's Global Protection 2012. What a relief to go back to something so simple and easy to use. Where Kaspersky seemed to occasionally interfere with viewing pages and download times, Panda sits in the background does all the work it should do without the user noticing. Also a full scan only takes around 30 mins....SO much better!
The product has a lot of little features, some of which I doubt I'll use, but everything seems to be user-friendly, and the layout of the Panda control panel is better than ever.
A few years ago Panda used to slow down the boot-up time of a PC...not anymore! My Windows 7 laptop fires up faster than it did with Kaspersky and is ready to get online safely in a couple of minutes.
In future I will never look to other anti-virus software again.
The only downside to Panda, is their customer service, which is virutally non-existent and consists mostly of forums and automated emails. However, it has always been the case over the years and a lot of anti-virus companies are the same.
