I am using Panda Free Antivirus on a shared PC with users' experience ranging from Basic to Medium.

  • 2 x Microsoft Accounts with Standard user rights
  • 1 x Local Account with Admin rights
  • All accounts are password protected

Whilst logged into one of the Standard user account, I noticed that Panda could be disabled (!). I have since set up a password to access the Panda Console (UI/Settings).

Additionally, I have downloaded the built-in Panda Cloud Scanner if required in the future, though I doubt I would need this.

Internet Explorer has File Downloads set to disabled, for all sites.

Are they any recommendations for Panda Free Antivirus?

I've found Panda very efficient with default settings. The most important recommendation I'd give is to enable 'Scan after cache synchronization' in On-demand scans settings. Also, only if you have a slow internet connection, to increase the time a file is blocked before obtaining a result from the cloud. You could also enable 'Automatically vaccinate every USB driver inserted into the PC' in USB settings.
That's all I think... Thanks for reading!
