    There is this deal where Panda antivirus is letting home users install their Panda Platinum Pro for free. Some promotional deal for IT users. But like I said they are offering it to home users. Too good of a deal to pass up I thought so I took advantage of it.

    Seems to be running ok on my computer. I have XP home.

    Anybody here familiar with Panda? How does it stack up against NAV, AVK Pro, PCC? Does it have good unpackers?

    I tried it a while back, and really liked it.,but
    a little too expensive IMO.

    Surely any 'higher end' antivirus that offers its product for free has to be worth a go, even as backup?

    Hi Ole. I use KAV resident, and recently installed version 5 of V Coms System Suite which has an excellent AV scanner I can use for backup.

    I would give you my copy and the key, but it is tied to my Email addy.
    I may go ahead and reinstall it and have a second backup. Doesn't seem like a bad AV, but I hesitate to use it as resident instead of KAV.

    Hi Root.
    That i can understand.
    Not many, if any AVs beats KAV for overall detection.
    For my own box i prefere Nod & a good AT scanner.
    I tried KAV personal long ago. Too difficult for me, and my pc didnt like it.
    Never seen so many config. options in a AV as in KAV.
    Regards
    Ole :)

    PS. Thanks for your offer. Couldnt accept it even if it was possible.
    Anyway, very nice of you.
