Guide Review - Panda Titanium Antivirus 2004

There are two types of antivirus users - those who want all their protection from a single package and those who prefer to put together an ala-carte solution from best-of-breed packages. For the latter, Panda Antivirus Titanium 2004 provides excellent, focused virus protection software. Used in conjunction with a good firewall and spyware package, Panda Antivirus Titanium is an integral part of system security. Because many worms attempt to disable antivirus and firewall software as part of their infection routine, Panda comes complete with self-diagnostics, helping to ensure optimum protection is delivered at all times.

When suspicious files are encountered but no exact identification is possible, the files can be easily sent to Panda support via the S.O.S. virus service. Working directly from within the program, Panda makes contacting support easy and efficient. Such added services bring enterprise-level support to the home user and add significant value to the protection.

Timely installation of operating system patches is a necessary part of security. Panda Titanium makes the job easier, by alerting when new OS patches are released.

Installation of Panda Antivirus Titanium is straight-forward and delivers on its promise of "set & forget" protection. Out-of-the box defaults are configured for optimum hands-free detection and elimination of viruses, letting users focus on their core interests without constant worrying or tweaking of their antivirus software.
