    Would like your honest opinion on panda Titanium 2007 and whats your view on it against other security suites. Also what is Panda like when it comes to system resources, is it heavy or OK.

    I trialed an older version of Panda two years ago and high resource usage was the "deal breaker" for me.I liked it other than that.

    The new versions of titanium actually run fairly light. The protection is good and it updates very often at least once a day usually more often. I run titaniun every once in a while and have no problems with it.

    I think it's wrong for Panda to try and create an implied associative realtionship between such a fine metallic element and its product.

    Well its err..hard on the user at least :D

    Anyway, Panda has a nice interface and the 2007 version has improved the resource usage. IMO the one bad thing about Panda is that they still do not offer free product upgrades during the subscription period, which is something even Symantec and McAfee now offer. Detection rates are OK, not exactly the best, but should still be good enough (its on par or slightly better than Dr.Web).

    this forum is biased!
    it will secure you, the 2007 range is light on resources... but i do not trust their firewall, good job ive got one on my router.

    their detection is good-ish, around the 90% mark i think, and it does work

    I boycott Panda & Executive Software products based on reasons that are off-topic.

    :D


    Why is it off-topic?

    I think a purchase decision should be made including all aspects of the product and company. If there is a reason we should consider refraining from a purchase from this company (that can be substantiated); do tell.

    Think Tom Cruise & SouthPark. Or think about a famous science fiction writer.

    I’m picturing little obnoxious cartoon characters jumping on Oprah's couch.



    Do you mean Isaac Asimov, the greatest science fiction writer ever?





    But seriously, if Corporate Panda is associated with Scientology, that would be one thing. If a couple of the exec’s are Scientologists, I say who cares.

    What is the connection?

    In the LeakTest of http://www.matousec.com/projects/windows-personal-firewall-analysis/leak-tests-results.php
    Panda firewall is marked with none anti-leak protection.
    I think they are not fair. They state:
    ========================
    Some products like BitDefender, F-Secure, McAfee, Panda, etc. include antivirus engines. The sad and funny thing in once is that lots of them mark leak-testing software as viruses or malware. The better engines mark leak-testing software only as potentially unwanted software, which is much better, but still it seems that these products worry about leak-tests. Why? To perform our tests against these products we had to switch antivirus engines of such products off to get real results of their anti-leak protection. Such behaviour can be also marked as cheating on leak-tests. Fortunately, it was always possible to disable the antivirus protection.
    ========================
    Why they switch antivirus engines? Did they switch the monitor of Comodo?
    I think the firewall doesn't have the duty to against the malware.
    Every security software has its individual way to against malware. If it can conquer the malware we should say that it pass the test.
    As their test panda firewall has a none anti-leak protection, people will think that panda titanium is garbage which must be thrown away.

    My trial run with Panda AV 2007 is nearing an end on my work box and it seems fairly light. I'm showing a total of 50,000k with looks like 5 processes running. Seems to find a good amount of spyware. I'm not sure but they could be mainly tracking cookies. In the end I will probably go with the new F-Prot or get another DrWEB license, the Doctor and I have got on well together for about 4 years now...:eek: :D

    Panda is a good AV product,but what puts me off is the 5-10 mins it takes every at start-up:thumbd: :thumbd:
    And also if you goto their forums their support staff is extremely proud of it and say that even their"Core2Duo,2GB Ram" computers takes around 5-10mins to boot windows xp user account...:mad:
