Yes. If possible I never download anything via CNET. I think it's actually better to download the Panda installer from FileHippo instead of from Panda's own site to avoid nag screens to upgrade to the Pro version and other nonsense. FileHippo went through their own 'CNET' phase a while ago when they started bundling some of their downloads with PUPs but they seem to have cleaned up their act.

Hi Sushiman,
Please run Malwarebytes free, (uncheck the trial/enable rootkit detection in the dashboard settings)
malwarebytes runs perfectly well with any AV that i know of, and its a great backup for them.

Hi Sushiman,

If NTT's AV is on your system but NOT activated, then you currently are possibly unprotected.
go to ActionCentre and check your security screen it will tell you whats currently active or not!.

First let me thank everyone for your suggestions / help .

I had my daughter check the computer on Sunday and she said ( she can read and speak both English and Japanese fluently ) that NTT's AV ( Trend Micro ) automatically installed when we connected to NTT's optical fiber internet back in June . Now that I have seen a photo of their auto scan I do remember seeing it pop up a couple of times between June and now but wasn't sure what it was then as I assumed MES was still installed . Anyway , I think I'll keep the Trend Micro for now . Apparently it is a very decent AV . Thanks again to all !
