Panda AntiVirus Complete 2019 for only $64.19.
Panda AntiVirus Complete 2019Reviewed by Ray Sidhu on .
Panda AntiVirus Complete 2019, is a useful and well made anti-virus software program.
Panda AntiVirus Complete is a easy to use and quick running anti-virus program. I think it is a bit pricey because it allows for only 1 install on your personal computer and phone and Mac.
Hello! Thanks for visiting, I'm Ray Sidhu. I've been a computer technician for over 10 years and I am the owner of Dialtone Computer Services, my own computer repair business in Sacramento, California.
Panda Antivirus 2019 Complete by Panda Security© seems to work quickly and not bog down your computer. It has in depth options for scanning viruses and malware.
Panda Security© normally sells this product for $80.24 but if you purchase today you can get it for only $64.19.
Today, I'm going to show you how Panda AntiVirus Complete 2019 works to keep your PC free from viruses and spyware and malware too.
After downloading and installing Panda AntiVirus I am greeted with the following screens.
Clicking the Aa button on the bottom left corner of the main scren shows all the names for the icons on the main screen:
The first icon of Panda Antivirus Complete 2019, allows you to scan your system for viruses and malware:
I ran a critcal areas scan just to see how long it would take.
The critcal areas scan only took about 2 minutes to complete.
I ran a full scan which said it would take several hours to complete. I didn't run the full scan though due to the lenght of time it would take.
I did run a custom scan on my desktop folder which took about 10 minutes since i have a large installation folder on the desktop.
Clicking the Anti-Virus button allows you to turn the virus software on or off, schedule a scan, run a scan or view items in quarantine.
Clicking on PC Cleanup allows you to run some very basic PC Maitainance task such as cleaning junk files, disabling startup items, defragmenting the hard drive, or scheduling a automatic pc clean up.
Clicking on the VPN icon from the main screen of Panda Antivirus allows you to connect to the internet through a VPN (Virtual Private Network). This hides your IP address among other things from the internet. It also prevents others from capturing your network data when you are on a public wifi connection such as in a hotel, restaurant or airport. The Complete version of Panda Dome Anti-Virus 2019 only allows you 150MB of VPN data, if you want unlimited VPN, you need to purchase the Premium product version
You have to connect to the VPN first. As you can see in the picture I have connected to the VPN and I get all the pop ups related to it. Once you are connected you will see your data get used up pretty quickly, especially if your watching video.
Clicking on the "My Devices" section of Panda Dome Complete Anti-Virus 2019 allows you to access the other devices where you have Panda Dome installed.
Moving onto the Panda Anti-Virus data shield. It is not enabled by default. The Data Sheild protects your data against ransomeware attacks such as Cryptolocker.
Cryptolocker will encrypt your data then make you purchase a key to unencrypt it.
I have seen this happen a few times to people and it is a common problem and it is reported in the news alot too. it is good to have protection against this type of attack.
Moving on to Panda Anti-Virus Complete WiFi protection. Wifi protection is an interesting thing, I connected to my home wifi and enabed wifi-protection.
I am then allowed to monitor my wifi connection. This page allows me to see what devices are connected to the same wifi I am using.
It also allows me to see pertinent information regarding the configuration of my wifi router.
The Wi-Fi connection monitor also gives me information on what channel I should configure my router with.
My router is currently set to channel 6 but I can change it to 9 for a better connection,
Panda Anti-Virus complete also gives me a link to send me directly to my routers administrator page by clicking the configure router link.
Clicking on the Personal Firewall section of Panda Anti-Virus gives you this page here. On this page you can turn the firewall on or off or access the advanced settings by clicking the gear icon.
I went ahead and disabled outbound connections for Internet Exploder and sure enough I was not longer able to browse with IE. There is also some advanced settings here, I am sure the defaults are good.
Moving onto Application Control, it is not enabled by default and you have to turn it on. After turning it on I am allowed to choose which applications I want to block.
I want to deny access to Google Chrome so I went ahead and put in in there to see if it will block it. Sure enough when I tried to run google chrome I am notified that it is blocked and
it doesn’t open. After changing the setting to allow, I am then able to run Chrome, Yay!
So far I think the Panda Anti-Virus Complete software is good anti-virus.
Looking at the parental control settings, we are given this screen here:
Moving onto usb protection, this setting allows you to configure automatic scanning of USB devices (such as usb drives) that are
plugged in the computer as this is a common way viruses get spread. I went ahead and
plugged in a jump drive and I am given prompts to scan it. I went ahead and scanned and vaccinated it as shown:
The Process Monitor that is included with Panda Anti-Virus Complete is pretty good. It allows you to see the processing running on your computer and also it shows you what URL’s those
processes are accessing. For example I have the skype program running and I can see it in the process monitor, If I click the skype process I can see a list of
URL’s it is using. That can be useful in trying to determine a rogue process.
Using the anti-theft option of Panda-Anti virus allows you to locate your phone. You have to login to your panda account, I tried the send alam option and it still did not work on my phone,
even though I have the panda app installed on my phone.
The recuse kit option of Panda Anti-Virus 2019 allows you to create some computer rescue media. I went ahead and created the rescue usb drive and then booted up from it.
Clicking on Detect advanced viruses downloads the Panda Cloud Cleaner. It runs just like any regular virus scan but apparently it detects more advanced stuff.
You can kill all proceses, send files to Panda or unlock files with this tool.
Moving on to virtual keyboard, all this does if give you a secure place to type incase you are inputting sensitive information like passwords.
This will ensure that no Spying Software can capture your keystrokes to try and steal your passwords.
Clicking on File Shredder prompts you to install it:
After you install it you can simply right click any file/folder and secure delete it as shown below:
You can also encrypt a file using the same right clicking method as shown.
Entering the correct password extracts the file and allows you to access it.
Works pretty good.
Lastly the password manager, lets try that.
I have to install it first, after installing it it tells me there is an update to it so I went ahead and updated it:
I cannot figure out how this password manager program works, it is just a database chooser application I guess. I tried to run the password depot after encrypting a file but it froze up on me and I could not store the password in password depot.
I am gonna reboot see if that helps. Sadly when I try to use the password depot after encrypting a file it just hangs.
Drilling down further into Panda Anti-Virus Complete 2019 and looking at the settings,
We can change the language, change the background of the application, create an advanced log, add a proxy, etc…
Under the Panda Anti-Virus settings we have the usual anti-virus settings, such as scanning for PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs), scanning compressed files, etc…
Here we can add exclusions from the scan..
Well that is pretty much it for my review of Panda Anti-Virus Complete 2019 and I think it is a good anti-virus program. Unfortunately, the rescue usb drive did not work and neither did the function of sending alerts to my phone with the app. I could see the location of my phone though. I’m sure their support people could resolve both these issues . Overall I think this is a better anti virus solution the AVG . The main thing is though is that it onlys allows for 1 install on your PC, ableit there is a iOS and Android and Mac OS version included. If you want unlimited VPN and 24/7 dedicated support get the Premium version. I would recommend that version because you get dedicated support. Panda Anti-Virus Complete 2019 has some cool features such as the WiFi Analyzer and the File encryptor functions as well. Also blocking applications has its usefulness especially if someone else uses your computer not to mention the anti-virus and anti-ransomware features.
