Panda Free Antivirus is an excellent lightweight antivirus program that takes care of your system without using lots of system resources or having nagging pop ups all the time.
The trick is that Panda Free Antivirus is based on so called cloud computing, and is only partially installed on your system and keeps core files on a dedicated server on the Internet. Thanks to this special cloud structure, Panda Free Antivirus doesn't have to be manually updated. You can simply forget about complicated configurations and having to download new signature files!
The cloud-based functionality doesn't mean you remain unprotected when disconnected from the network: Panda Free Antivirus features a local cache that keeps the program up and running, working at 100%.
Panda Free Antivirus features two types of analysis: Optimized scan – which presumably analyzes the most important areas in the system, though you can’t know for sure – and Other scans, where you can select specific folders and files to be analyzed. The program includes a behavioral analysis and blocking system that detects suspicious actions typically found in malware. Another nice feature in Panda Free Antivirus is the USB vaccine tool, which protects your computer from potentially dangerous files in USB portable memory devices.
Though Panda Free Antivirus can’t be scheduled to run automatic scans and doesn’t include filters for web or email, it’s still a perfectly valid antivirus for netbooks and low-spec computers.
Panda Free Antivirus is a lightweight, simple to use antivirus tool that keeps your system safe without nagging you with messages and updates.
