Panda Global Protection is a security system designed to keep your computer safe from any web-based attacks.
After a quick installation process, you can get acquainted with the user-friendly interface, as well as view the protection (antivirus, firewall, identity, vulnerabilities, anti-spam filter, parental control) and maintenance utilities (automatic backup copy, online backup, optimize performance), and configure their settings.
Scanning can be performed in three ways - quickly (scans the memory, running processes, cookies), fully or custom. It does not take a long while to finish, and during this time you can view the numbers of scanned, infected and resolved files. Plus, you can schedule a scan, view events reports, statistics, and quarantined malicious agents (name, original location, reason, status).
Furthermore, you can select the items you want to scan (files on disk, mail, instant messaging, Internet browsing) and threats to detect and exclude, enable behavioral analysis and heuristic scanning, enable Panda firewall protection as well as protection against fraudulent websites (and adjust the level of sensitivity), enable the anti-spam filter (e.g. create a list of trusted senders) and web content control (e.g. create a whitelist and blacklist).
Additionally, you can enable automatic backup in case disaster strikes, but also restore copies, save copies to a CD or DVD, defragment a disk volume, and cleanup your computer (or schedule a file cleanup).
All in all, Panda Global Protection is a pretty good tool for providing your computer with the security it needs against web-based attacks. Its firewall may not be the strongest, but the program can be easily used by a user with average experience in the antivirus department, and it takes up a very low amount of CPU and system memory. The software may need some improvements, but we still recommend it to users.
