Q: Panda 2016 Free vs Kaspersky Antivirus 2016

Hello there everyone,

I'm actually on Kaspersky Antivirus v2016, and i was wishing to go to the freeware side. But i definitly do not want to sacrifice security. Does Panda offer same or even better security than Kaspersky, or shall i rather stay where i am?

Any opinions are welcome.. Thanks in advance

A: Panda 2016 Free vs Kaspersky Antivirus 2016

without doubt, i'd choose kaspersky antivirus

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.

Effective Malware Blocking
Panda scored very well in my hands-on malware blocking test. When I opened a folder containing my current malware sample collection, it didn't do anything immediately. That's because Panda waits for a significant event like file creation or modification; it doesn't scan just because a process accessed the file. When I copies the collection to another folder, Panda got to work, quickly wiping out 86 percent of the samples.

It also caught some of the remaining samples when I launched them. Overall, it detected 89 percent of the samples and earned 8.8 points, the same as Kaspersky. Among products tested with this same collection, Trend Micro has the best scores, with 93 percent detection and 9.1 points.

Results from tests with my previous malware collection aren't directly comparable, of course, but you have to appreciate what Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus (2015) did with that bunch. It detected 100 percent of the samples and earned a perfect 10 points.

My malicious URL blocking test doesn't rely on a pre-set collection of samples. Rather, I take the very newest list of malicious URLs supplied by MRG-Effitas and attempt to download real-world malware samples. The antivirus gets credit for blocking access to the URL or for wiping out the file during or immediately after the download. I keep at this test until I have results for 100 very new malicious URLs.

As I proceeded with the test, Panda's stats stayed remarkably... Read more

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.

A:Avast IS 2016 / Panda IS 2016 / Bitdefender IS 2016

What kind of system do you have?
Panda and Avast are the lightest while Bitdefender can be heavy.

All 3 offer excellent protection (Avast requires tweaking; Bitdefender and Panda works out of the box), while Bitdefender is mainly known for its detection rate (signatures).

Try the 3 of them (trial versions, not the 6 months) and see which one you prefer.

In terms of UI, all 3 are user friendly.

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 10 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 "The Best (Free) Antivirus App for Windows".

On one hand Avast offers a more complete feature set:

File System Shield
Web Shield
Mail 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.

I am deciding bewtween Panda Free 2016 and 360 Total Security. I know 360 has really good protections but have also heard that they tend to quarantine Windows system files. I do not know much about Panda except that it is heavily reliant on cloud, which is fine and they do decent in independent testing. I would like your opinion on which one you think is better for a reliable, effective, and light antivirus experience.

Good afternoon everyone,
I hope you are all well?
Sorry to worry you, but please could you help me and let me know which FREE Antivirus is the best one to use for 2016?
The reason I ask this is because I have had to get a new desktop computer, as my old one would cost me more to repair/fix so I have bought a new computer.
My computer is a Lenovo all in one desktop, specs are as follows:
1.Operating System is: Windows 10 Home 64 bit x 64- based processor.
2. Processor: Intel ® celeron ® CPU J 3160 @ 1.60 GHz 1.60 GHz
3. Installed RAM: 4.00GB
4. Hard Drive: 1 Terabit
At the moment I have the following FREE programs installed:
1. C Cleaner
2.  Secunia PSI
3. Malwarebytes Antimalware.
I used to use Sophos Home FREE, would you recommend me using it?
Please could you kindly let me know what FREE Antivirus you would recommend for 2016?
What other FREE programs would you recommend for me?
At the moment I am using McAfee LiveSafe, which  is a paid antivirus and came preinstalled on my computer and that is due to expire, so I want to replace it with a free antivirus.
I am very careful and I do use common sense.
I look forward to hearing from you soon, thank you so much in advance for your help, support and replies I really appreciate it.

There is no universal "one size fits all" solution that works for everyone and there is no single best anti-virus. Every vendor's virus lab and program scanning engine is different. Each has has its own strengths and weaknesses and they often use a mix of technologies to detect and remove malware.Choosing an anti-virus is a matter of personal preference, your needs, your technical ability and experience, features offered, user friendliness, ease of updating (and upgrading to new program release), ease of installation/removal, availability of quality/prompt technical support from the vendor and price. Other factors to consider include detection rates and methods, scanning engine effectiveness, how often virus definitions are updated, the amount of resources the program utilizes, how it may affect system performance and what will work best for your system. A particular anti-virus that works well for one person may not work as well for another. Everyone's system is different and sometimes you may need to experiment and find the one most suitable for your needs.Here are links to some related discussion topics:Which anti-virus program are you using?Best Free Antivirus?Best Antivirus?Best anti-virus software for windows 8?Looking for recommended anti-virus softwaresWhat is the best antivirus protection?What's the best premium security suite in the market currently?Here are links to BC polls:Poll: Best Antivirus and FirewallPoll: Best Anti-Spyware/Anti-Malware/On-Demand ScannerI gen...

On two separate systems (so far) today, Panda Cloud Free Antivirus has automatically pushed its 2016 update (to version 16.0.2, from the 15.0.4 that I was still happily using).
I was hoping to keep the 2015 version around as long as possible, due to allegations that 2016 has a problem with restoring files from quarantine to the proper/original folders from which they came.   Now that the update has been pushed out, we'll see what happens.

If you have the money to purchase it, I would strongly recommend Kaspersky Internet Security 2016.
Overall, Kaspersky might not be as user friendly (many alerts when properly configured) and as light as Avast (Kaspersky always was a little hoggy, although that has been mostly fixed in the recent versions), however the security components of KIS are much more mature and powerful (when properly configured) than those of AIS.

In conclusions, if you have capable computer hardware and you don't mind a little bit of configuration and quite a few alerts, I would definitely recommend KIS.
If you believe that KIS might be too heavy for your system, and that you do not really visit suspicious sites and download suspicious applications, then I'd recommend AIS.

Excluding MR1 restart issues,
@hjlbx and @Sher brought up some interesting topics about KIS 2016 in particular, where its scans etc use quite a bit of power.

I am a user of KAV 2016 only for a little over a week and I use it in a laptop, but such laptop is plugged into AC, not using battery. Therefore, I have never been able to notice power consumption issues.

One thing that @Sher mentioned was the shut down time delay.
Although startup for me been fine, I did however notice briefly a slight slowdown when it comes to shut down. I usually test and monitor system impact in general but shut down process I rarely monitor.

As I am not sure how many active users in MT use Kaspersky, this thread is for such users to come forth with their experience in KAV/KIS
I have now setup a VM to monitor KAV 2016 to test it once again in such areas.


A:Kaspersky 2016 possible issues

For a laptop, yes there are more performance issues in comparison to desktop.
I am using KTS 2016 MR1 on my desktop & been using it for years, never had any performance problems. I run a full scan side by side surfing & watching videos on VLC with no lags. I certainly don't have a supercomputer, just a i3 processor with 8gb ram.

I tried using KIS on my netbook (dual-core, 2gb ram), didn't pan out as much as i hoped it would. Startup & shutdown issues. System hangs during full scans. So i switched with ESET. It is a tad lighter on my netbook.

But the reality is, these issues are there with all the antiviruses. Generally, i prefer not using antiviruses at all on laptops. Default protection i.e., WD with windows firewall & smartscreen is good enough and when coupled with NVT EXE radar pro, then no need to worry.

Available for testing build:

Can be activated on the Internet license for beta testing for 90 days. Before installing the new build will delete the previous one.
Their impressions of the Assembly are writing here.

Some aspects of difficulty for novice testers:

2. Product hampers! The reason is included in Application Verifier. Be patient, you're beta testers, not ordinary users.

A:Kaspersky 2016 Beta

Strong Suggestion:

Kaspersky takes beta testing quite seriously and has mechanisms\procedures that must be followed; it is reasonably well-managed.

For best bug discovery do not use virtual machine (VM)... although Kaspersky recommends using VM. Using VM might miss bugs that only occur on physical system.

If you do not have a second beta testing machine, then really...beta testing Kaspersky is not a good idea.

The Good
It's available for Windows, Mac, Android and iOS devices. The interface blends well with the Windows 10 look and its options are easy to find. Any module can be disabled and tiles can be removed from the console.

The parental control and firewall components worked smoothly in our tests. The data shield immediately reacted when unknown programs tried to access the protected folders.

It has a comprehensive help manual that explains most parts of the program.

The Bad
As previously mentioned, Panda shows a notification message for the data shield module whenever an unknown application tries to access the protected directories, and it asks you what to do: allow or deny. However, although it doesn't inform you of this, it remembers the choice you make for that process, adds it to the permissions list, and sets its permission type. This means that it will automatically allow or deny access to that program whenever it tries to access the protected folders, until you go to the console panel to revert settings. In other words, Panda doesn't implement two options in the tray message for allowing/denying access only once and always.
The application control module worked well in our tests when denying access to programs that were on the list. However, it didn't prompt us for action whenever an unknown application tried to run, and it didn't deny access when we asked it to do this automatically, except in one case: when we tried opening Panda's vi...

Now I'm having a problem with Kaspersky Internet Security 2016 file version
And Kaspersky customer service is of no help what so ever. All they kept on saying was "We've never heard of that happening before". And then they tell me to do things I have already done (reset permissions ...etc...).

First, I had no problem downloading the file BUT when I tried to install it I got the following message - "Error 2730 - Error installing driver KLiM6.sys_x64 Error code -2147024891".
After a lot of work. I finally got it to install but my system continuously crashed and I had to do a uninstall. Even with a reinstall afterwards my system continued crashing (now I run avast just to be safe).

I tried KIS 2016 latest on Win 10 64.

Few queries -
1. I see alerts are Windows type alerts & not Kaspersky GUI type alerts, anyway to get KIS GUI type alerts?
2. I see it has ads/tracking, etc.., how good is it? Is it good enough to replace programs like ABP, uBlock Origin, etc...?

HTTPS scan -
I dont like HTTPS scanning. I see it is required for safe money, url advisor, etc...
I in a way liked the implementation of HTTPS scan in is not used for all the websites.

HTTPS scan ---
I opened a bank website...checked the certificate & it was Kaspersky cert. KIS asked to open the website in protected browser & I did so. In the protected browser I checked the certificate & it was not Kaspersky cert but original cert...thats good.
So why HTTPS scan enabled is needed for safe money? Coz websites under safe money use original certs & not Kaspersky certs.

And I tried few HTTPS websites & all showed original certs. Only bank websites showed Kaspersky certs but under safe money browser bank websites too showed original certs.

So I am little confused how HTTPS scan in KIS works & on what websites it works? Coz as mentioned above all the HTTPS websites I tried showed original certs. Only Google search showed Kaspersky certs.

So why HTTPS scan enabled is needed for safe money, url advisor, etc..? Coz if HTTPS websites are using original certs & not Kaspersky certs then it means those websites are not scanned, m I right?

A vulnerability in the Panda 2016 products that allows the execution of code with elevated permissions has been detected in Small Business Protection and Panda 2016 products. The PSEvents.exe process is periodically run with elevated permissions and has dependencies of libraries located both in the default directory as well as in other system libraries. As the USERS group has Write permissions over the folder where the PSEvent.exe process is run and because the system first looks for libraries run by this process in the execution folder, it may be possible to create a malicious library in the execution folder that will replace one of the libraries installed in other folders. Therefore, a user could run malicious code with SYSTEM privileges.

Hafif Kaspersky Internet Security 2016 vs Bitdefender Internet Security 2016?

Sistemi: Windows 10, 64 Bit, ?ntel.


A:Bitdefender vs Kaspersky (2016). System Impact?

It is not clear-cut answer.

Bitdefender adds less to system reboot. Kaspersky much longer reboot.

Bitdefender uses about 200 to 300 MB RAM.

Bitdefender requires more advanced IT knowledge to solve problems when it issues occur.

Kaspersky has much better protections - much. Bitdefender needs supplement like NVT ERP because it is weak against some malicious scripts.

Bitdefender is good for laptop; has low battery mode.

Kaspersky is good for desktop and probably the best IS suite for family.

BUT BUT Patch (b) has been in beta-testing for > 1 week, and is supposed to fix most of these issues:

I guess it's sort of like AU/RS1 itself: you'll have either no problems or some problems.

Kaspersky Internet Security (2016) is an all-around great security suite. The independent labs praise its antivirus protection to the skies, its firewall does the job without hassling the user, and its spam filter is more accurate than most. Even the parental control component boasts more features than most suites offer. Powerful remote management is icing on the cake. Kaspersky is a PCMag Editors' Choice security suite, sharing that honor with Bitdefender Internet Security 2015.

Kapersky Internet Security 2016 offers a great level of protection on its default settings. However, there are a few settings which you can change to increase even more the protection offered by Kapersky Internet Security 2016.

This guide should also cover Kaspersky Total Security 2016, and some settings should apply to Kaspersky Antivirus 2016.​

1. Enable "System Changes Control" to block changes to operating system and web browser settings
If the web browser start page or the default search engine has changed without your intention, it might be activity of an adware or malware. In some cases, such changes are caused by add-ons that come with software you install (for example, with media players or instant messengers). Sometimes system settings are affected by malicious scripts that could have reached your computer through insecure websites.

With System Changes Control in Kaspersky Internet Security 2016, you can trace and block unwanted changes to the system settings.
Open Settings menu in KIS 2016 by clicking the gear icon in the lower left part of the user interface.

In the Settings window, go to Protection and select System Changes Control.

In the component settings view, make sure the component is enabled (the switch on the right must be On). You will be prompted for action whenever a suspicious change of settings is detected.

The Best Free Antivirus Protection of 2016By Neil J. Rubenking November 11, 2016 "We've tested 14 free AV services to help you find the right one to protect your PC.",2817,2388652,00.aspComments:I always take articles like this with a large grain of salt. There is no "best" AV protection, free or paid, out there.I post mainly because this recent article does describe the features of the various free AVs extant, with links to the individual reviews. As always, the reviews might be a tad out of date. Still, for those wondering about free AVs and their features, this is not a bad place to start.That said, I note that the "Editors' Choice" award includes Avast Free and Panda Free, both of which come well recommended hereabouts. They give however short shrift to Windows Defender for Win 10 (AKA MSE for Win 7) which I think is not warranted. I use WD.Finally, the best argument they push for buying a paid AV is "If you do have a little cash in your budget for security, the best paid antivirus products do tend to offer more and better protection." I don't think that a tendancy is worth shelling out bucks on an annual basis, and I have 10 years worth of experience using various free AVs without infection/regret to back up my opinion. As always, YMMV.

Coinciding with the launch of consumer products from Panda Security 2015, Panda Cloud Antivirus today FREE Edition is the new Panda Antivirus Free, joining the large family of consumer products from Panda Security.

Why we changed the name of the product?

Panda Cloud Antivirus was born in 2009, the first free cloud-based antivirus. At that time was an innovative approach that broke with the traditional model based on local firms, and allowed us to offer a solution with a high detection rate and a minimum impact on PC performance.

Time has proved us right, and in recent years we have seen the security industry has been forced to adapt their solutions and technologies evolve to rely on the cloud. Today, virtually all security solutions used in varying degrees, to cloud-based threat detection technologies.

Throughout these five years the product has evolved steadily, increasing its power against the new malware and protecting millions of computers worldwide. The offline cache active malware signatures, heuristics technologies, protection behavior, vaccination of USB drives or anti-exploit technology are some of the improvements that have been introduced and improved in each version for maximum protection even when the PC is not connected to the Internet.

This evolution is what has allowed us to build the XMT engine, a technology that Panda has reached the maximum results in the latest comparat... Read more

I tried using the go back to Windows 7 and that failed. So I had to reinstall Windows 7 clean. Next time I backed up everything to my external drive using acronis true image and tried again. I still had slow issue so I restored 7 with true image. I really want to give Windows 10 another chance. Question is I downloaded the free upgrade when it was free. Question is that version is before the Anniversary update. Do I have to install with the old version before the Anniversary update? Or is there a free version with the Anniversary already in the ISO? Meaning I want to upgrade using the newest version so I will not have to wait another hour or two to install the Anniversary update.

I want change my computer protection.

I want install Avast or Avira. But Avira doesn't have a firewall, so I want install avira + comodo firewall.

Which would be better for zero day malware protection and signatures: Avast Internet Security 2016 Or Avira+ Comodo firewall

A:Avast Internet Security 2016 VS Avira Free + Comodo Firewall

Avira + Comodo firewall is almost unbreakable. Best signatures and best proactive for zero day malwares.

A:[Behavior Blocker] Norton Security vs Kaspersky Internet Security 2016

As for Kaspersky, I have not used it since about 2009 when it was Kaspersky PURE so I cannot really comment. But as for Norton, it blocks unknown files it doesn't have a HIPS as such but any program being stupid of trying to access websites and files they shouldn't get blocked by SONAR their zero-day and zero-hour malware component.

Earlier I was using Bitdefender and thought Bitdefender was the number 1 and Kaspersky is the number 2. But After coming to this forum I realized that the reality is completely different! Some products have trouble working with Windows 10, some have trouble protecting 64bit systems. I did some digging and settled with two products. Kaspersky and ESET. Im using a Windows 10 64 bit system. What product might be the best for such a setup?

A:ESET Smart Security 9 vs Kaspersky Internet Security 2016 for Win 10 64bit

For purely protection basis you may go to ESET SS 9 as you can tweak the HIPS for protection and their Sandbox (Banking) + so far the architecture (x64) isn't affected from performance.

KIS 2016 is a promising suite, however until now limited components working from prevention due to Windows 10 environment which the developers make a note to fix those issues; but overall a balance concept where you can tweak more from numerous components.

Somehow the system impact tends to be consistent as light for ESET than Kaspersky.

Still brace yourself to see those possible unique characteristics.
