In many ways, having Panda Antivirus run your PC is like having a virus. Just like the animal whose name it bears, Panda is very slow and hugely resource-needy. Demanding daily updates, the program hijacks your entire CPU (as you're working on it) for 10 minute stretches; and making scans sometimes lasting days in which your PC is entirely unrelinquishable, aloof from the command of cursor or keyboard.
Not only are your PC's resources curtailed under this tyrant, but the lack of autonomy... (read more)

My Panda Antivirus Titanium 2006 software worked for two months. The only problem was that it would delete emails it didn't like without asking.
However, after 2 months of use, I started getting "low protection: alerts. When I tried to remedy them, I got error messages. Panda techies keep sending the same boilerplate telling me to remove all traces of Norton etc. from my system. I have done this at least five times. Then, after 6 weeks, another techie asked if I have System Mechanic. I had... (read more)

I wanted to pass on my experience with the Panda Antivirus Titanium - Panda Software.
When I ordered 2004 Panda Titanium I had a hard time activating it.
Then I received an email with this offer. Just US $9.95 + 1 month's services FREE!
Special offer for Titanium Antivirus 2004 clients.
I tried to order from that offer and wasted a lot of time and could not download. I sent an email that was not responded to.
Then for some hair brained reason I tried again and I guess I was extremely... (read more)

I would advise anyone and everyone from purchasing Panda Antivirus Titanium Anti Virus Software because I made the mistake of doing so and now i have to get a decent antivirus program just to make up for all the crap that panda put me through. I suggest norton or mcafee.. even pc-cillin..
the program continually reminds you that it's installed and working (no matter how many times you click the "DO NOT REMIND ME EVER AGAIN" button). The auto update feature asks you to continually re-enter... (read more)

Panda Antivirus Titanium - Panda Software is a great piece of software - low cost and effective - it does what it says in the CD. Very effective at cleansing viruses and 2004 version even warns and replaces the text of any infected file. I used Norton and Viruscan and neither managed the job that Panda does.... (read more)

What can i say? i got fed up with norton because it was using too many system resources and i was having problems with the activation rubbish in the 2004 version. i tried a trial of Panda Antivirus Titanium - Panda Software and found it to be absolutely brilliant! the install was painless and in no time, i was scanning my system. admittedly i only found one virus, and that was a simple trojan. i have been using it for 3 weeks now and so far, it has prevented about 30 infections from various...

This is by far the best anti-virus product I have ever used. It uses very few system resources and is totally hands-free. The integrated firewall program is extremely simple to configure and works well. (read more)

I was frustrated with Norton Antivirus letting a virus in to my computer, and searched for another alternative. After trying out Panda Antivirus Titanium, I liked the interface and decided to install Titanium. I have had two problems with it, the first caused my leftover Norton entries in my registry, and the second one outlined in the Bad Points above. The tech support online (via email) is not as good as a quick phone call to North Carolina. They warn you that you'll be charged after three... (read more)

I have been installing this software on new computers and customers PC's for over 6 months and have not had any problems whatsoever. Except on machines which are already infected, have remnants of old AV software (usually MacAfee or Dr.Solomon which have failed to properly uninstall or on a Packard Bell PC with no uninstall facility!!!), or a PC which is about to fall over on its own accord. Both Panda and Norton are excellent products and do what they advertise. If they don't, it is due to... (read more)

We've installed Panda across our company, approx 150 PC's and found it to be an extremely effective anti-virus tool. I even have Panda installed on my home PC. The scheduler doesn't always update daily as it should, but a colleague switched to the Corporate version in XP and it's updating as it should. Can only speak as we find and although Panda was the cheapest we've had less hassle in operation than other anti-virus programs ( for example before Panda, McAfee failed to prevent a... (read more)

Forget the reviews and take notice of users who have bought this terrible program. I bought it and have had nothing but problems. I have bought Norton 2003 as well as PC-Cillin & PC-Cillin is the BEST by a long shot!
Took FIFTEEN MINUTES to scan a game! Email scanner only works sometimes so you will be sure to get WORMS in your inbox. Heuristic scan destroyed Pest Patrol requiring a reinstall. Both Norton & PC-Cillin scanned the same game in seconds!! ULTRA-FAST SCANNER ???? Hype more like... (read more)

Panda Antivirus Titanium was a breeze to install. I just inserted the cd and clicked on install. A few seconds later the software was installed, I registered online and instantly received the latest virus signature file and the very latest update to the program too. I did not even need to reboot my PC before I was scanning my disk drive. Panda found 3 instances of the same virus on my PC which my previous antivirus software had missed. (read more)

Panda Antivirus Titanium is a handy utility that has a smaller resource footprint than it's bloated counterparts from larger companies. It's not a very well known antivirus program, so many of the trojans that look for norton or mcaffee miss it when killing processes. It's simple and easy to use, and the lack of tweaking features isn't necessarily a bad thing. It's quite fast by comparision to it's competitors and has found a few that the competitors' newest versions, fully updated still... (read more)
