    o_O How good is Panda Anti-virus? I am curious about it. I run NOD 32,Trojan Hunter, and Sygate firewall. Is it a system hog, or is it lite similiar to NOD?

    In my opinion, you would gain nothing and loose a lot. Panda's detection rate leaves something to be desired.
    To me, one of the last considerations is whether a program has a small footprint or not. When other considerations are equal, then that may make a difference.
    Stick with NOD32. It has a small footprint and an excellent virus detection score.

    To Girobb from firefighter!

    I have read from numerous checkvir.com tests, that Panda was the absolute best av-program to cure infected files among those programs (some 10 progs.) to be tested, including for example such programs as KAV, F-Secure, DrWeb, Sophos, Avast32, RAV, Norton, McAfee, Pc-Cillin, Norman etc. :D

    About detection rates, I don't say anything.
