Panda Antivirus Pro 2009 is, in my opinion, one of the the easiest to use anti-virus packages and is, therefore, ideally suited to those who are not particularly technically minded.
Once installed you can almost forget about internet security issues such as viruses, spyware, rootkits, hackers, online fraud and identity theft.
You can chat, socialise, share photos and videos, bank and buy online, read your favorite blogs or simply surf the Web, with complete peace of mind.
Panda Antivirus Pro 2009 has an easy to use interface, making it very simple and easy to follow.
In some respects that is it’s only downside – whilst Panda’s tendency to take decisions on user’s behalf will be welcomed by some, the more technically savvy might find the reduced level of ‘interaction’ somewhat puzzling.
The firewall setup, for example, is as good as it gets from immediately after the installation, and intelligently adds applications to the whitelist, without too many obnoxious requests.
It works well too, as your computer enters an immediate ‘stealth’ mode.
