    Panda Free is not included in the comparison graphic:

    ~ Copyrighted Image Removed - See Above Link for Chart Image ~

    I also wonder about the URL filtering, I haven't tried Panda's main products for a long time, so I don't know how it was in their 2014 versions. Hopefully you'll no longer need to install that annoying toolbar first and it would also be nice if it is integrated in their main process(es).

    Is it fixed in the new version 2015? Are the ad pop ups still there? :shifty:

    Installed the new Panda Cloud Free version and noticed something i haven't seen before. There is a option to disable Panda news (maybe it disables the pop ups?)

    Why would that interest anyone because "Panda Free Antivirus will make the best decisions for you..."? All you need is Collective Intelligence. :D

    Have they actually changed Panda Cloud or is it the same old thing as Panda Cloud 3.0, just with new name?

    I just checked Panda (Cloud) Pro, it also looks the same, but it doesn't offer the toolbar anymore and there is no longer a separate URLfilter process. (This has not changed in the Free version btw.)

    Well that's rubbish. I wish they'd finally make URL checking a part of URL Monitor and not as separate component (toolbar).

    Why oh why NO one can make detection and cleaning as simple and consistent as avast! has? Tried Panda for the millionth time just to find it demanding a restart again on nearly every bloody thing. Not to mention constant nagging about malware on things that are supposedly PUP but aren't tagged as such. Seriously, that totally ~ Snipped as per TOS ~ me off.

    @Impet
    No. I tried it and still got the stupid offer popup.

    Anyone notice their product comparison chart had the typo "Glod Protection" instead of Gold?

    I really hate useless pop ups. Has the problem with Win 8.1 been fixed? :doubt:

    What's your problem? It's a Panda thread and i'm stating what i hate about it compared to avast!. Since when that's not allowed? Oh yeah, its Wilders again, when you can't compare anything to anything... sigh

    I hope they'll do something about nag screens. Why not simply add option to disable it? If I'm user and I do not plan to upgrade anyway, why should I suffer? Main UI would have some sort of comparison or links to Free vs Pro so people who read it may click (if interested).
    Otherwise, if they spam user every week, I'm gonna switch to another free AV (to install on PCs I repair etc).

    Advertising once a month - reasonable. But like every 3-7 days? (PS: I don't know the ratio that new version has). I know and understand it's marketing, but if people are never gonna upgrade (they only use PC for internet and don't care about the rest - general users) then why nag them.

    Just my 2 cents.
