posted in : Panda Top 10 Antivirus | comment : 0

Panda Antivirus Pro 2011 is compatible with Windows Vista systems but also Windows XP and Windows 7. Generally, it does just about any thing that software like this should do and it has the advantage of not restarting your system after installation that can save you a few minutes when you are in a hurry.

However its protection level is not that high comparing it to other software, but it has a really fashionable design that most users appreciate on it.

When it comes to performance, this anti-virus has excellent scores and very good malware detections and firewall blocks.

The software protects, cleans and removes viruses and spyware but it’s also very good when it comes to not slowing down your computer while performing the periodical clean check.

It is very efficient if you have important files to protect because it comes with a new feature for restoring, and it is also very easy to use due to its design.

Easy to install and easy to use features are the best scoring points of this anti-virus, though there are some other softwares that are better.

To sum up: the good things about Panda Antivirus Pro 2011 are that it has very efficient virus detection and it’s also affordable. Not only this, but for advanced computers, this software can perform at its maximum speed. The bad thing about this product is that it does not remove all threats from your computer, plus there is some other such software that are a lot cheaper and that can excel at what this program fails. The program also has a very high vulnerability to firewall simple attack and can’t block excellent rootkits and scareware. However, even if performance in this area is not excellent, this program provides an excellent malware protection and a two-way personal firewall that is fully functional. Download $36,86 $40.95
