    A warning pops up with no image nor mention of Panda. Cannot think of any reason why the company would not want to call attention to their association with APDA. Yet letting consumers recognize that Panda is behind these warnings could only benefit them, no?

    "Visicom anti-phishing" component is a different implementation than "Panda URL Filter". They both share some technologies and signatures are Panda's, but if what you installed is Visicom (via a Visicom offer or partner) then its normal that it is not branded Panda.

    My mistake, in the case of the Visicom component it is as @Cloud says, it is branded Panda. But some of Visicom partners use it without the Panda branding.

    Why does a "reg console " autostart when this is uninstalled.
    I uninstalled with revo and i was informed that a reg console had autostarted and a cmd window appeared briefly.
    Looked a bit iffy to me and i didnt like the way it tried to install toolbars and hijack homepages etc.:thumbd:

    Hi Beethoven,

    No, I have never came across such an issue but I'll give it a look.

    The installer may you the option to install a toolbar but like with most software, you are bound to get an unwanted toolbar, or chrome browser, etc., if you click, click, click. Thus, I think it is not possible to claim the addon (or other products, for that matter) is an "iffy, hijacking adware".

    Oh! Happy New Years. :)
