Panda or Norton?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
Hi,

I have Norton 2006 installed in my new HP 1430n. It seems to do a decent
job. But when I run Panda's active-scan it comes up with 27 Spywares and 2
hacking tools that Norton does not pick up. I also run ADWARE SE and SPYBOT
regularly and just prior to running the Panda on-line scan.

My question is: Are these problems that Panda finds false positives? Are
they just marketing ploys? Or, are they real malware issues that need to be
repaired?

I've attached the Panda report and would appreciate any analysis or opinions
on this matter.

Thanks,

Marc

When you discount the ridiculuous alerts on harmless cookies, you are
left with only four. Of those, two appear to be alerts on commercial
software which can most likely be ignored. That leaves one alleged
spyware and one alleged adware (the last two in the list). Does Panda
elsewhere show you where it finds these items so they can be pin
pointed and checked out? If not, chalk it up to a waste of your time
and effort.

If you insist on using online malware scans, use a good one. See what
Kaspersky has to say:

http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner

And run scans for spyware and adware using programs designed
for the purpose. Panda is not one.

After some 15 years I dumped Norton for AVG and Avast (run on different
machines). Why, Norton was definitely slowing machines down and was
intrusive. AVG or Avast sit quietly in the background and just do the
job updating sometimes as much as three times a day. But neither remove
malware, adware and other non-virus stuff. For that you need to run
something like Ad-Aware (now offered by google as a free downloader) and
Spybot search and destroy plus Mr Gates' Defender. Unfortunately there
is nothing (yet) on the market that does everything within one package
reliably and without constantly telling you what a good product it is
and can we please have some more of your cash etc. etc. I think this is
one area where the free stuff is vastly superior to the paid for stuff.
Being cynical it wouldn't be because if the software houses ship dodgy
stuff they can charge another shipload of money to sell you the new
improved version, would it?

I assume you mean the free AVG?

I disagree about using free av. Try KAV 6 and you might change your
mind.

Agreed - after years of using free av products I have realised how darn
good KAV is and have just purchased it.  It's not cheap, but it is
brilliant at spotting problems AND cleaning them. It is alsow very low
on resource usage. KIS is even better (KAV + firewall and other
goodies).

it's cheap if you know where to get it.

Re: Panda or Norton?

and where would that be?

Personally, I'd rather pay (and therefore reward) a company which puts
effort and resources into producing and maintaining such a tip-top
product.

According to frequent reports in these newsgroups:

   Norton is a resource hog.
   Panda spams you to death once you register.

Please don't post attachments in text-only groups. Many news servers
will strip them, or reject your post. Thanks for your consideration.
