Panda Security is now offering the 2011 edition of Panda Antivirus. The version number of Panda Antivirus 2011 in this review is version 10.00. It features new and improved security options that you might want to consider using to protect your computer, e-mails, browsing, and instant messaging activities. Panda Antivirus Pro 2011 includes malware protection in real-time and an on-demand scanner. It is also offering a vulnerabilities scanner and neat utilities. What is neat with Panda Antivirus 2011's installer is that it's not bundled with a third-party toolbar or any browser add-ons. There's an option to install the program using three methods: Minimal, typical and custom installation. The default installation method uses a typical installation which means the program will not install the firewall protection. The firewall program by Panda Security can be installed any time the user decides to use the service. A PC restart is not required after installing Panda AV unless the end-user chose to install the firewall protection by Panda. The program will automatically check for program and virus database updates and a computer restart is recommended. The only issue that I noticed is that it took 3 minutes for Panda Antivirus to restart the PC. Panda AV 2011 runs on Windows 7, Vista and XP computers. It does not support the 64-bit edition of XP.
