    Thanks for the reply. But it is true for the free version?

    Pedro I really appreciate your responses to these threads, but in the case of the Nvidia deleted file thread the file was not in the recycle bin. The deleted file was inside an Nvidia folder, not a suspicious folder. I doubt a lot of user if given the choice would of removed a file associated with their GPU. But I'm sure some people would of removed it.

    But if the AV is set up to ask first, and the recycle bin or quarantine folder does not empty it-self on it's own without user in-put, I'm sure a lot of these issues could be resolved. Even if the user has no in-put on the action having at least a recycle bin or quarantine folder that will never ever empty it-self without user in-put would also work. Because the item in question would at least be there in case it's a false positive. But I hear you, and in reality nothing is perfect.

    Yes - except behavioural analysis engine (Pro only) :)

    As pbust stated that bug should be fixed now ... :doubt:

    I think I'm going to renew my Panda license..it's looking more likely but still have time left on NIS 2012 which I'm not currently using.. We'll see.

    I installed PCAV and then did a complete uninstall to try Panda Antivirus 2012. PCAV installed very quickly and ran beautifully. Had some troubles with PAV 2012 though. The installation slowed down my PC, and it took a long time for it to install. Running well now, but there seems to be just a slight bit of slowness with loading pages in Chrome that I didn't get with PCAV. Maybe the firewall? I do like Panda products though.

    Yes it's normal that PCAV feels lighter than the 2012 products because of the way it was designed.

    ..............and please keep it that way, Pedro going forward in the development of PCAV.

    I'm sure i'm not the only one who appreciate this and in fact just how simple it is to operate. Some in this thread are calling for new options and that fine with me as long as the main goal is not lost trying to accommodate everyone's wishes.

    IMO, keep it light and simple going forward and focus on being stable/effective against malware for the good of the vast majority of your users. :)

    Agree with you.:thumb:
    I just switched to PCAV and it is what I like the most, simplicity. I don't want PCAV to turn out bloated like some other Security Software

    We agree. PCAV at least in it's free standalone edition will be kept as simple as possible. The things we're discussing adding are advanced configurations, improvements (scan speed, whitelisting cache, etc.) but not making it bloated. The firewall will only be available in the PRO Edition.

    I have to chime in as well. I was really hesitant at first to try panda. I had used it in the past and it was always so heavy and sluggish. I figured if symantic can get its act together, then I'd give the panda a try. I've been pleasantly surprised so far. It runs very light and watching some of the recent tests out there, shows that it has a great detection rate.
    Thanks for making such a great product.

    That's why I renewed with Panda for another year and hopefully longer. It's powerful, secure, simple and light...:thumb: :D :thumb:

    I don't think pbust can promise us anything yet (for the Free version).

    Adding a full BB to the free version would be great! It's the only thing I can think of that is missing.

    I believe it means "behavior blocker".

    PCAV Free already has a behaviour blocker, it's non-interactive, different from normal ones like Mamutu. It has an update-able set of rules which block certain behaviours for example PDF readers opening an executable file to prevent PDF exploits. The Pro version has that plus an behavioural analyzer. I think they use it to detect malware through behaviour.

    Behaviour blocker

    I stand corrected. PCAV does have a Behavioral Blocker in the free version.
    What you can't enable in the free edition is "behaviorial analysis".
    That's a feature in the Pro version.

    OK, thanks, that's what I was guessing, but there is one already, so I wasn't sure.
