Malwarebytes (AV) is a fer sure thing
Spybot Search and Destroy (spyware)
Ad aware for those annoying ads that no antivirus seems to ever really get rid of
Webroot (AV) is excellent aslo and VERY lightweight

i run all these at the same time, good line of defense. i never like to stick to just ONE antivirus, if your computer can handle it go for it. just make sure theres no major conflicts between em

Gary, Ad Aware is a Antivirus and Antispyware. It's not an ad blocker

Panda Cloud AV Free

What's the heck with Panda Cloud Antivirus v2.3.0 (free)...?

After reading the last AV comparative board i decided to install the free version 2.3 after uninstalled MSE, all went smooth on install and easy parameters could be found and seems to work fine.

But on reboot after login/password session i got black screen and only Task manager could be accessible.
Same behavior on 2nd reboot.

So, uninstalled all in Safe Mode, but a driver leftover did the same black screen.

Went back again in Safe Mode and deleted in registry and in c:\windows\system32\drivers\NNSNAHSL.sys (Network Activity).

Rebooted fine.

Does any of you have encountered this behavior?

I have installed panda on multiple machines and never had a single issue.....

Of course that doesn't mean anything as there is millions of ways to have a system configured.

I honestly don't know why that would happen, but I would try to install it again. Where did you get the installer file from?

Also, I would let pandas forum know.

Got it HERE...looks is the official link!

Humm, well i'll try again later. Must be some conflicts i have to trace.

BTW, after uninstall MSE, Windows Defender updated itself. I saw it didn't disabled also itself after Panda install...might have to disable W.D manually in services.msc!

Windows Defender can be turned off in Control Panel.
