I just got rid of it. The trial promo version got my bp way high. With this version you dont get a user ID nor a password that THEY request to get the upgrades, so you dont get them. And it constantly reminds you that you're less and less protected because the updates are not done.

Getting in touch with CS is not easy, plus in a rare reply they allow themselves to have an attitude.

That's my personal experience with Panda, good luck to you.

Especially the "attitude" bothers me. As a company you cann't afford an "attitude". I wonder even how this can be possible.
The company, I'm working for, checks every outgoing mail to avoid this.

I used Panda 6 and Panda 7 Platinum at my office for a year and a half, and the autoprotect completely screwed machines over. It literally took Word a minute to open, Excel longer, and every time a client opened Outlook, the damn thing went into a recursive loop when they couldn't log in.

We switched to Symantec Corporate, and things have been a lot better.
Signature file is under revision. This will be back shortly.

Synmatic is good but not the best either, when i had norton system wrosk i had 8 un detected viruses on my computer, when it says its updated...it dosnt always update, it said i was protected from 2 of the 8 viruses detected by mcafee but norton could no find one..i also recently heard that the new 2004/2005 nortons and put viruses on your machine

I'm not sure there is a significant difference in detection rates between Panda Platinum and Norton. If you like comparisons have a look at these test results:- http://www.virus.gr/...sp?id=67&mnu=67

Different tests yield different results, but I believe Panda Platinum holds up well.

There are other factors such as product reliability and customer services, and in these areas Symantec perform very poorly indeed. The propensity of 'Live Update' to fail through no fault of the user is entirely unacceptable. As is the grotesquely bad technical support, which leaves users in the lurch when things go wrong (as they often do!).

Other test results can be found here:- http://www.av-comparatives.org/

Yeah Panda is pretty good in terms of detection rates.

A bit too heavy for older systems though
