I’ve tested Panda Internet Security 2012 on my PC and have covered my experience from the installation process until it’s up and running protecting my PC.
As far as my PC is concerned, the installation is halted after a few seconds because I have Norton 360 5.0 installed. So if you plan to use Panda Internet Security 2012, make sure you uninstall any other existing security suites. When you double click the installer, it will extract itself, preparing all files needed for the installation. Before the installation process initiates, it will ask you if you want to custom the installation (i.e. specify folder where to be installed etc). Alternatively you can choose an automatic installation for speedy process. The installation should only take less than 2 minutes. After the installation is completed, you are required to restart your computer. After your computer is rebooted, it will automatically update the virus definition (about 16 MB).
Panda has second-to-none removal and detection reputation. This is proven from a series of AV-Comparatives tests with the results are way above the industry average. In term of performance, AV-Comparatives rates Panda Internet Security 2012 as “very fast” in the tests conducted in July 2011.

Panda Safe Browser
Panda Safe Browser is a useful feature exists on this software. It is a virtual machine and is completely isolated from your PC. With the presence of this feature, buying through online purchases can be safer because you sensitive data will be protected when they are transmitted. What I notice from my brief observation is this feature will cause your PC to run slightly slow (bear in mind, it is a virtual machine). That being said, it’s a great trade-off to your security.
