Hello and welcome to the Panda Dome test!
Panda is an antivirus of Spanish origin, quite well known in the world of computer security.
Since 2009, Panda has been offering free antivirus software, named before Panda Cloud, then Panda Dome since 2019.
The antivirus has never shone by its detection capacity, we will see if this year, Panda will surprise us.

The interface is still clear, nothing has changed since 2021. Still suitable for novices. We note that Panda is a little lighter.

In terms of detection, Panda is still average, and even worse than 2021!
In URL, it lets 4 infections pass, even if it tries to defend itself but too late.
On the pack, it is unfortunately a carnage....
Panda blocks several malware but is very quickly saturated by the installation of RAT, Bot and worms...
It saturates while it even ended up shutting down! (except video, it did not answer any more...) obliging me to pass by a LiveCD.
Very disappointed, I didn't expect this.....

Watch my review on Odysee !

RAM Usage : Average
Malware URL test : 6/10 (4 missed)
Fake crack : 1/1 (detected)
Malware Pack : Remaining 127 files to 346.
Panda blocks several pieces of malware, but is quickly overwhelmed by several that take hold.
The VM gets infected and ends up crashing in video break.
A LiveCD is necessary !

Resistance to script attacks: No...

Result :
KRescue: 665 (mainly Trojans and worms)

Recommand : No
System Clean : No, system infected

Panda is a paid antivirus! You pay to make your computer more vulnerable. :ROFLMAO:

I asked Panda why this score, I put his answer below :D

Why Kung Fu Panda ain't that effective? Because she slows down your PC like in 2006. :ROFLMAO:
Panda is one of the lightest antiviruses there is. Maybe you have a difference experience, because antivirus performance can vary greatly from one computer to the next. But, typically Panada will be very light, even on low end hardware.

It's a pity it's protection isn't better as there is a lot to like about Panda especially it's lightness & ease of installation - I wonder is any members have used Panda long term in every day use, I can see from the review it gets bogged down with lots of malware & as I remember a similar thing happened with a test by Leo? Nice test Shadowra :):)

I was using it for some time. I was impressed with how light it is, but ended up ditching it due to the detection rate. I didn't get infected when using it, because it's rare for me to encounter malware. But I thought it made sense to use something better. Testing at the malware hub shows that it is slow to add signatures for new threats and its behavioural protection isn't very good.

If it had better protection, then it would be a good antivirus in my opinion, because of how light it is. While it typically has issues with false positives when tested by AV-Comparatives or AV-Test, when I used it, I had very few issues, despite often downloading new software.

I'd be interested to you see try it with Sly guy's settings. I think you need premium version though.

I apologize, I forgot to answer :/ but I take this opportunity to do so :)

It could be a good idea, why not. Only, novice users don't modify the antivirus settings (I've been reproached a lot, I not modify them more now to do like them).
But I keep the idea :)
