Panda? - What's the general consensus about Panda Titanium? I've used the online scan and a tech suggested I buy it, but I was wondering how it matches up with NOD-32, AVG, et al.

panda - hi I use panda platinum and if I click on the symbol on the task-line it shows me that firewall is not enabled. If I open panda properly it says it is enabled, so what is true here and why does panda itself? Dirk

Panda IS 2005 - Ever since I've had Panda Internet Security (about 9 months now), I've been unable to get it to run the rescue floppy disks. They can be created OK and I can boot my notebook from disk 1 (USB drive) but when I insert disk 2 as requested I get 'Error on

I agree about NOD32. I've heard this many times.
But a visit to their web site indicates it is not for the beginner! So
that's something at least to consider.

You know, this really means nothing. All you point to is their own site!
Almost everyone agrees it is a resource hog.

When I have read reviews on NOD32, it is described as 'not for the newbie'.
I probably need something simpler.

NOD32 is not all the difficult, and is great at what it does. I am no
techie, but navigated NOD32 just fine.
