Panda free Antivirus has gone through re-branding. It used to be called Panda Cloud Antivirus and was part of basic-level freeware solutions for computer protection. Now, two lines of products have been merged into one, lost "cloud" in their name, but became a truly innovative free antivirus capable of humbling any competition.

Installing Panda Free Antivirus is very easy, it only requires a couple of clicks of your mouse, and by default you 'pay' for the product by agreeing to some advertisement and Yahoo becoming a default system with renewed starting page in your browser. However, you can deny this change if you want, this does not lock installation.

Scanning is performed with average speeds, repeated scans go faster. The program utilizes cloud technologies, so all operations and processes are light and not demanding when it comes to hardware. This could cause poor functionality, but, to my surprise, this free antivirus is more thorough than some commercial products. Spyware, malware and adware is identified effectively and blocked faster than I could blink. The program has the option of launching a quick scan before accessing a file and prevents hazardous processes from even initializing. Those processes that managed to slip past the initial protection are caught and treated within seconds. To say that I was impressed is to say nothing, actually. This is the fastest most efficient prevention and virus deletion I have ever seen. more
