    Since moving to Windows 10 I had to drop Bitdefender Free AV (not supporting W 10) and I went with Panda Free AV.
    It has been almost one year now and I (my son computer too) have not complaints whatsoever. :thumb:
    Bear in mind that I prefer simple AV solutions, hence Bitdefender was my pevious choice.
    Someone in need of more customization control may find it restrictive.

    It rate quite high on tech support websites.

    Do you really want to pay $72/year for antivirus? I sure as hell don't. Especially when they have a free solution that does everything you need. Panda's not my first choice in AV, but I've heard good things about their free solution.

    Looking at their solutions aside from the free version, the only thing I could POSSIBLY see of interest is the parental controls. And even that, you have options from other companies.

    I agree, although to be fair they also have a yearly subscription for $30.79 which is reasonable and they have had excellent results in detection tests...

    True but some people can budget better on a monthly subscription.

    But you all have great points

    Monthly, yearly, you're still not getting anything useful over the free solution. But hey, that's my opinion. Me personally? I have a lifetime MBAM purchase for $12, and I get Webroot for $5/3 PCs every year. Best solution I've ever used, and it's so light it makes Avira look heavy.

    Where and when do you get Webroot so cheap?

    Newegg has it on sale constantly. Check the Newegg discount thread on here, it's usually on the first page of this subforum, and updated almost daily.

    Jan 26th, Feb 25th, March 29th, April 26th, and May 9th it was $9.99 for 3 computers.

    Feb 11th it was $7.99.

    I think I got mine about 6 months ago? Ended up buying two separate 3 computer licenses for $6 each, because they don't start the countdown until you plug in the key for the first time.
