    $29 is a good price for the Pro version I think:thumb:, if one compare to the competitors like PrevX etc...

    But I doubt if it will be that much effective as Prevx, it has SafeOnline.

    Quite Good I would say.

    Even if I don't use PCAV yet, I do read the Panda forums.
    And people seem to get the help they are looking for.;)

    One of Panda's goals was not to make a bad nagging screen that drives you crazy. So if our feedback was put in like that (I am about to go install a Pro copy on two machines) the nag screen should not be that bad.

    We were using the free panda cloud antivirus in our non profit organization. I am working on a script to uninstall it immediately.

    The bait/switch is annoying.

    Bait and switch of what? Our goal was a free antivirus and that has not changed! We did not remove anything from the free version we added stuff, they have to make money somehow because those servers and staff do not work for free. I see no bait and switch so please tell us why you say its a bait and switch?

    The free cloud antivirus that will be FREE and protect you...oh wait, it has a nag screen and advertising now. That is not free friends.

    Also, please spare me your "they have to pay for servers blah blah". If they have to make money--don't market a free product.


    bait = free cloud antivirus
    switch = advertising and nag screen

    It will be leaving our organization very soon.

    € 29,95? No way ... I think € 19,95 would be acceptable, sorry Panda :oops:

    Every free AV that is not made my Microsoft has a nag screen. Besides it's not like they took tons of stuff away and force you to get to the pro version for good protection. This is not bait and switch, bait and switch is giving away a free product with everything then taking 99% away to a pro version leaving the free version with 1% of what it use to have,

    I don't know about scheduled scans but it runs background scans when you are away from your machine.
