I just started using this after a review on this site of it. I currently have version 2.1.0 on this computer.

How long does it take for the update to come through and will I be able to tell when it does? It'll probably want me to restart the computer then, huh?

Can't really say as I notice any difference in performance with this installed versus Avast and generally don't even use a real time av, but do try testing out some of the more popular ones.

I recall this didnt score all that well on the malware test. Looks promising though.

The Malware tests always differ every time.
I personally never really had any issues with Panda and rather have people using Panda then the home Mcafee, Norton or AVG.

I think having free antivirus is a good thing. sure- offer a pro for money but a proliferation of free anti-virus could help stem virus outbreaks. I know nothing is 100% however, it is better then doing nothing.
