Installation

The installation of Panda Antivirus Pro is fast and, in a couple of minutes, you will be up and running. Keep in mind that you need about 300MB of free space on your hard drive. I guess that’s not a problem nowadays when 1TB hard drives are becoming the norm. In terms of specs, you should know that Panda Antivirus Pro supports Windows XP, Vista and 7. A processor clocked at 2GHz coupled with 512 RAM will be enough in order for Panda Antivirus to perform well. It doesn’t come bundled with adware or other programs.

Interface

Panda Antivirus Pro has an easily accessible and intuitive interface that will not pose any problems to its user. The interface is designed for beginners and it is very easy to set up and start tweaking it. It looks very sleek and beautiful too. The main windows provided you with different tabs such as Status, Scan, Reports, Quarantine and Services. These are very self-explanatory and there’s also built-in help support, if you ever get stuck.

Pros

Panda Antivirus Pro automatically detects and removes all types of viruses and malware threats. If you notice missing files on your system or if you encounter some problems while booting, then you can be sure that your PC was infected with malicious software which uses different anti-detection techniques. With Panda Antivirus, you can download files, surf the web and use your PC without any concern about infection as up-to-date security technology is implemented into it as well as advanced heuristic detection and a firewall. The ability to monitor your wireless network and prevent intrusions are also provided by this excellent tool.

A unique feature of Panda Antivirus is represented by the USB Vaccine. The moment you plug in an USB device, your PC can get infected. By using this feature, your PC will be vaccinated against such threats and as a result, infection is rarely an issue. Panda Antivirus is very efficient, thanks to the proprietary TruPrevent Technology 2.0 which uses the behavioral analysis of files to detect any potential threats before they infect your PC. The gaming mode provided by Panda Antivirus Pro allows you to play games and watch movies without ever being interrupted by those annoying pop-ups.
