Preferred Solution: What is better Panda free antivirus or ad-aware free?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: What is better Panda free antivirus or ad-aware free?

Hello and welcome to malwaretips,
I think adaware got a better detection, but i would trust more Panda.
Both don't have proactive protection, and web filter are almost the same.
Adaware do more false positive than Panda (thanks bitdefender engine).
If you can use other antivirus than panda or adaware you should do it.

Sophos Home Free Antivirus vs Panda Free Antivirus 2016. Which one do you pick and why?

A:Sophos Home Free Antivirus vs Panda Free Antivirus 2016

I have to say that I haven't tried Sophos until now. But my opinion about Panda goes like this.

Resource Usage (eg: CPU, RAM)?Panda is efficient in both of them, but during scans it may use more CPU resources

Real World System Impact?Quiet Low

User Friendliness? 5/5

User Interface? 5/5

Level of Protection and Features (eg: Antivirus , Firewall, Behavior Blocker)?4/5
Overall Winner? Since i haven't tried Sophos I cannot give verdict for the best between the two.

Thankyou And Happy New Year.

Does Panda Free Antivirus ever receive product software updates like Avast and AVG?

Ex: Avast just got upgraded to Avast Free 2015. AVG did as well.

It should get some sort of updates. But the best way to find out is probably to go to their site and take a look and see if there is any info on that.

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?​

A:Configuring Panda Free Antivirus, recommendations?

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!

A:BitDefender Antivirus Free vs Avast Antivirus Free vs Avira Antivirus Free

Resource Usage (eg: CPU, RAM): draw, with the indication of Avira, since BitDefender takes overall a little bit less of CPU time, but consumes much more RAM.
Level of Protection and Features (eg: Antivirus , Firewall, Behavior Blocker): Avira has more features, configuration options and is generally more effective when it comes to the malware detection (Proactive and Reactive).
Overall Winner: Avira.
Edit: I've just noticed, that you've added Avast - as the third contestant - to BitDefender and Avira. Still Avira is the winner here. Avast is not too hungry for PC resources and perhaps has more features, but its engine is not so good, and its detection ratio usually lags behind both: BitDefender and Avira.

Yes, it's a false positive, assuming that the Adguard installer you downloaded was the official copy from the official website.

360 Total Security Essentials is all that is needed. With Avira and Bitdefender engines enabled, RAM usage is high... but only when interface is open or scanning. It will only be a real problem if user always has interface open.

Protection far outweighs the RAM usage. Plus, 360 Essentials is very user friendly.

I have a client running Win 7 64-bit with MS Office 2010 home & Student.

It appears that installing Avast Free killed the product activation, blanked out device manager, and prevented Office from being activated after a clean re-install.

A similar thread about how to fix it is here: Office 2010 - Unlicensed product after installing Norton 360

I've run Avast on several machines (In part because of the built-in remote assistance tool) with no issues.

I need to find a solid antivirus program for Office 2010 users. Anyone aware of something better than MSE for these folk? (And no, they don't want to switch to Open Office)

Thank you in advance,


A:Is Anyone Aware Of A free Antivirus That Won't Kill The Office 2010?

I use the free Microsoft Security Essentials Anti-virus, I've used it for years. Does not interfere with Office 2003 or my recording studio software (some anti-virus programs do conflict with the recording studio software).

A:F-Secure Internet Security 2016 vs Panda Free Antivirus 2016

If a security soft ranks amongst the top performing AVs, it won't matter much if it does function correctly or causes problems on your specific system.

From lab test results F-Secure has an edge over Panda during testing the past few years in terms of detection (although higher false positives).

From users, it seems more prefer Panda - which is one of Neil Rubenking's (PCMag) favs (that don't mean much - but that is just my opinion).

I'd say, in terms of overall protection, Panda has a slight edge; it might protect your system in a few instances that F-Secure will not.

And why does link you to the Ad-Aware SE Personal while going directly to Lavasoft you are directed to download Ad-Aware 2007 Free and can't even download the SE Personal version unless it is Enterprise. But then the link from bleepingcomputer does take you to a place ON the Lavasoft website that does offer the SE Personal version. Very confusing!

I'm trying out Panda Free 2015, and it seems pretty good so far. I've been using Avast for years, but noticed that it seems to slow down my boot up. Also, the nagging popups are a bit annoying. Anyway, I see that the latest version of Panda has done very well in most reviews and independent tests. How do you think it compares to the other free products, particularly Bitdefender Free?

I would just buy an AV product, but they all seem to be yearly subscriptions. I'm not into that at all. Especially when there are good options for free.

A:Panda Free vs others

BitDefender Free is not configurable, and not being updated. Panda Free 2015 is faster and has higher detection rates. If you want a solid Free AV, go for 360 Internet Security, but sometimes it has false positives. If you want a better one and a lighter one, which offers very good detection and very good web blocking, then ESET NOD32 or ESET Smart Security will do.

I dont know however if ESET offers a lifetime license or just a yearly subscription. Among all that I have tested, Emsisoft and ESET offer the best protection, but ESET is lighter and faster and has very small signature updates. But Emsisoft gets lighter the longer u use it (same with almost any AV).

If you like another tight free AV, another choice is Comodo. But, you have to configure it properly and it has lots of pop-ups.

I ve tried many free antivirus over the years but these two have always consistently been the ones I liked the most After some issues with Windows last year I had to briefly switch to Avira but after the issues were fixed I got back to Avast because it was the one I had learned to rely upon in the last few years However I m open to reassess my position between these two excellent products Something that has also spurred me to reassess the situation was the fact that LifeHacker has recently changed their recommendation from Avast to Avira as the quot The Best Free Antivirus App for Windows quot Free vs Antivirus 2016 Avira Free Avast 2016 Antivirus On one hand Avast offers a more complete feature set File System Shield Web Shield Mail Avast Free Antivirus 2016 vs Avira Free Antivirus 2016 Shield Behavior Blocker DeepScreen Still I disable the E-mail blocker because I solely use Web mail I also disable the Web shield because It seems to slightly slow down my browsing I don t like to have all my HTTP traffic analyzed by the AV or any other program Sometimes it doesn t play well with HTTPS because it internally to scan the encrypted traffic which changes the original website s certificate I know I can selectively disable the Web Shield for HTTPS only So in practice I have been using the File System Shield and the Behavior Blocker at default sensitivity settings no Hardened Mode to avoid too many False Positives and issues with less known software I ve had no problems with this set up for a long time Regarding Avira it lacks Mail and Web Shield it only has a File System Shield and as far as I m aware they don t have a Behavior Blocking technology like Avast They rely entirely upon signatures and heuristics More recently they also have the Avira Protection Cloud which sends file signatures to the cloud in order to provide better protection does it really improve upon the local signatures and heuristics or is it just a fad The lack of Behavior Blocking is what concerns me in terms of how well protected I am with Avira compared to Avast Is it really better to have Avira with its better quot traditional engine quot or is it better to stick with Avast which sports a slightly worse quot traditional engine quot but that possesses advanced Behavior Blocking technology DeepScreen I m also interested in other aspects besides protection namely Resource Usage I m mainly concerned with CPU usage I d also like to keep disk access to a minimum because I don t have an SSD which means I don t want my AV to slow the disk access even further Performance Impact On daily usage only with real-time protection enabled which one has less impact on overall system performance Ads Popups and Nagging in general How is the upgrade nagging on the two products I mean with Avast I ve had no problems recently The only popups I usually see are related to the real status of my system or Software Updater notices to update a given program e g Skype I may very rarely see a popup that talks about some paid Avast product but they are pretty rare I believe How is this on Avira Does it still show you a popup on every update every day What kind of advertisements can I expect P S Last time I used Avira it had a slightly annoying behavior Every time it would detect some infected file it would then force me to automatically run a Quick Scan on the system This was a bit annoying and time consuming at times Is this still happening today I hope you guys can help me by sharing your experiences and opinions about both products I ll update this post if needed nbsp

*Moderator Edit: split from ~ Queen-Evie*I'm jumping into this topic with a query and a comment.  My comment relates to Bit Defender.  I have been unable to completely remove all files even using the BD tool.  It trashes my internet connection, and I have tried a myriad of recommended actions in conjunction with experts in another forum.  I have reached the point where BD no longer interferes with my computer, but many files remain in a folder that cannot be removed, as BD refuses to acknowledge my administrator access.  I have grown to hate BD and would never recommend it to anyone. My query relates to using Malwarebytes concurrently with Panda free version, which seems to be infinitely preferable to BD.  Panda tell me that it will probably be OK to do so.  Does anyone have a more definitive answer?

I have been a long time user of Avast anti virus, and have tried on different occasions Microsoft Security Essentials, Avira, and very briefly, AVG. I was looking at something unrelated to anti virus software but happened upon an ad for Panda Cloud Free AV. Many different places rated it very high among the better free programs out there, and having been a very happy customer with Avast I went back and forth deciding on trying this. I finally gave in and downloaded/installed it and removed Avast. It seems to be working just fine. I like the simplicity of the interface, and wanted to get the input of others here to see what they think of it. I don't see too many mentions of it.

Should I use Windows Defender with Panda Free AV & Malwarebytes?

Is it unnecessary and/or redundant?

Will it cause conflicts with Panda & Malwarebytes?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

A:Should I use Windows Defender with Panda Free AV & Malwarebytes?


Windows Defender (WD) under Win7 is only a weak anti-malware application.
It does not offer much protection. And you still need at least a robust, real-time AV (either free or paid to supplement it.

Most 3rd-party AVs will at least partially or fully disable WD. I do not know whether that's the case for Panda.

As far as MBAM, you did not mention if it is Free or Premium.
Free will not conflict with WD or any other, real-time security application, as it is only a manual, on-demand scanner. MBAM Free provides no real-time protection.
Premium ought to be fine with both Panda and WD, but MBAM is without question much more robust than WD. IOW, I don't think you'll have any problem with WD + MBAM Premium, but MBAM will provide more protection.

Lately, after downloading the latest AD-Aware updates, the next time I open the program, I receive a popup saying ""Your definitions are (some number, such as 17) days old. Would you like to check for updates now?" So I check for updates, but there are none. Any thoughts on why this is occurring?

A:What's going on with my Ad-Aware (free version) updates?


I have been getting the same thing, and I check once a day. I think It's just a glitch in the program right now.

Hi all. I was wondering what you think of this software. I know that a lot of people don't care for it. I've been using it for a long time and I can't remember if it ever did really find anything. I hear that it uses a lot of system resources too.

As in title both Ad Aware and SuperAntiSpyware Free stop or freeze during scan. AdAware sometimes will close unexpectedly or will just stop scanning and become non-responsive. I have newest install of AdAware. I am running Windows XP Pro and use Avast, Spyware Terminator and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and they all run with no problem. Mbam finds no infections, so could I have an infection that is preventing AdAware and SuperAntiSpyware from completing their scans?

A:Ad Aware and SuperAntiSpyware Free stop

Try running this application first and then try scanning againPlease download Rkill by Grinler and save it to your desktop.Link 2Link 3Link 4Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.If using Vista, right-click on it and Run As Administrator.A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.If not, delete the file, then download and use the one provided in Link 2.If it does not work, repeat the process and attempt to use one of the remaining links until the tool runs.If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.Do not reboot the computer or you will have to run it again

"Vista Home Premium SP1"

I recently installed Ad-Aware Free version from the link on this site which took me to I believe. and I have a couple of questions.

First of all, in my add/remove programs section, Ad-Aware appears there with no lavasoft icon, just a blank piece of paper with a folded corner. Did I just install spyware on my PC while trying to prevent it, and if so....What do I do now?

First, computer specs: 5 yr old Acer Laptop, AMD Turion 1.6g, 100gb HD, 1lmost 1.5gb of memory, running Windows 7 Ultimate 32bt w/sp1. Also installed Ad Aware 9.

Computer running well, and would hibernate upon closing the lid, without issue. I saw that Ad Aware had released version 10 Free, so I uninstall v9, restart, then install v10 from Lavasoft website. Install goes well, but now when I close lid, computer will not hibernate, and after short time, will produce BSOD labeled "driver power state error", with stop: 0x0000009f. If I uninstall Ad Aware, hibernation resumes perfectly. Have not tried with other antivirus programs, but would consider another free version if one is recommended.

Attached is BSOD crash folder and perfmon report,

A:BSOD while trying to hibernate after installing Ad Aware 10 Free

Ad-aware seems to be causing your pci.sys driver (video?) to timeout waiting for a reply (258 seconds).

From a strictly BSOD perspective Ad-ware (both versions) has issues with some systems. I would remove and replace with Microsoft Security Essentials at least to test.

I just downloaded ad-aware free and my computer started to restart itself for some reason, but the restart kind of froze off so I turned it off manually. Now, when I turn the computer on, it asks me how I want to boot, then a dell logo comes up, then a little loading bar for windows appears, but after that it's just a black screen with the mouse icon. I'm on my laptop right now. My mom has been planning an event and some of the info is on there and she is going to freak out when she finds out in about fifteen minutes! Please help! Oh and internet explorer and windows defender were running when it all happened. Defender was doing a full system scan.

I have been using Ad Aware free for my Anti spyware software for a while. Thing is I don't really like, yeah it does on access scanning but it just seems very heavy and is a hog. After its installed I notice a marked increase in bootup time on my computer. Are there any other free spyware programs that have on access scanning that don't use so many resources?

Are their any advantages to the Plus edition that would benefit a general user? I am willing to pay but only if it is worth it. Also a nice spyware protection would be a question also, I am currently running SpyBot S&D and I love it, but I am wondering if their are any other NON-Freewares out there that top this program. Also is their anything better than Ad-Aware.

Just got the NOD32 Antivirus from a PC shop and I need help.

Inside the package it says *VERY IMPORTANT!!* - Please make sure you uninstall all other antivirus software before installing this software. Running more than one security program could cause serious problems.

The warning sign from the package of NOD32 is making me worry...
Is it ok to install NOD32 antivirus on my PC that has AVG free edition antivirus installed?

Avast has worked very well for me. Skip all the add-on stuff and stay with the basic protection to limit pop-ups.
