I would not trust that 100% of Panda Dome Free AT ALL! I have being testing PD Premium during months and still doing but this month testing Panda Dome Free + NVT SH... You better enable Application Control for unknown malware and other tweaks (in paid versions)... and even doing so, PDP still is weak against scripts (better apply NVT SH and/or NVT OSA)... check Malware Hub during the last months...
since this person is a mod and av tester so basically astaff member here im more inclined to take his opinion above anyone elses, everyone elses opinion is s til lvalid and thanks for your inputs but, if a saff member saying its bad i might jsut pay the £30 a year for nod32 its pretty cheap and i gots a lifetime lisence of malwarebytes cos i bought it way back in 2011

I'm not saying it's bad or good, just saying that take with a grain of salt that AV tests results... my opinion is based in months of testing malware samples with Panda Dome Premium in 2 different forums...

Anyway You better test Your own before pay or not, all depends on Your security habits, if You are not a "happy clicker" then it's ok :giggle:

Without taking away the merit of our partner @harlan4096. It is one thing to be an Avs tester that tests many samples of Malware, and another is to be a normal user, who will not face so many malwares in his life.:giggle:

I'm having second thoughts about Panda. Their site gives you a download button that links to CNET ( I have no issues with software being hosted on outside servers, but CNET?!), there you get an installer file which then downloads the full installation. But despite me changing the installation location to suit my set up it tried to install it somewhere else, unsuccessfully, twice. I'd disabled everything likely to clash with an AV install prior to starting that process. I'll look at Kaspersky later on today.

after ive chosen an antivirus cos im pretty paranoid il just transfer the files from this SSD to my other one which has 0 web browsers on it cos i used gpedit to disable iexplore.exe and edge blocker from sordum to block MS edge so i have no browser then, will panda be ok cos im just a gamer its why i want a lightweight av. plus ive disabled windows upodates,registry editing,control panel, CMD and lots of other stuff through GPedit

so my protection is gonna be

panda with tinywall or eset internet security
voodoo shield
malwarebytes premium

This article offers so little protection wise. If you are going to get infected by something following this will not really help.
His recommendation on software are also rather questionable with adobe for pdf that gets abused every 2 weeks and glasswire to help with god know what (probably paid to name drop).
Some person with a website has just UAC Max+EMET (or equivalent on Windows 10)+Firefox w/ NoScript and AdBlock Plus and data and system backups and he says he's fine with the occasional articles bashing the security paranoia.

Read my post again as it seems you are too emotionally attached to the article for some reason. Let me make it clear.
