A product is no better than the support behind it. The fact that the
makers of Panda see no need to respond to your request for support should be
enough for you to discontinue using the product. If they don't need you then
you certainly don't need them.
I had contemplated using Panda at one time but after reading the
reviews about Panda's products I decided against it. I have also read posts
about Panda labeling valid registry entries as viruses and subsequently
removing the valid registry entries, thus causing problems for the user.
There are better security products available to you. I would suggest
you go with an AV program as opposed to a security suite. I would suggest
NOD32, Avast or Kaspersky. If you don't wish to use the native Windows
firewall you can download and install the free Comodo firewall, which is a
very good firewall in my opinion.
If you just purchased the Panda product I would contact the customer
support department and demand your money back based upon the fact that you
cannot get support for the product. If they refuse and you used a credit
card to recently purchase Panda I would call the credit card company and ask
that the charges be reversed. You have the legal right to do this if Panda
promises support in their advertisements and then fails to provide the
It is your choice as to how to handle this matter.
It is the responsibility and duty of everyone to help the underprivileged
and unfortunate among us.
