Nav Vs Panda

Recommended Posts

My nav2003 crashed for the second time in six months. The first time, I was able to download and re-install; this time, I did it by the book, carefully following Symantec's instruction. This resulted in my uninstalling the whole thing, thus losing information I needed for the download. After going around in circles for, oh, not TOO many hours, I got the idea: NAV and I had difinitely parted company.

 

Not being interested in running the web naked, I looked around; I read some good things about Panda Titanium, so I have downloaded and installed the trial version. It looks good, and seems a bit more friendly than NAV.

 

All my antivirus experience has been with Symantec, so I am a bit nervous about this new thing.

 

I am NOT interested in trashing NAV; it has covered my tail more than once. But I WOULD like to hear any opinions comparing the two systems.

 

Thanks (again, and in advance), Poru

I also got frustrated with NAV, but it was with tech support and not the program. A simple question and it took them 6 days to reply. Anyway, I am not wanting to trash them either. I currently still use NAV 2004 and it, as well as the previous two versions have covered my butt many times. I have tried Panda and it seems like a good program. A bit more expensive than NAV I think. I am not currently using it as I have, for now decided to stick with NAV2004. I did have to email Panda for a tech question and it took them more than a week to respond and then didn't even answer my question. Maybe because I was using the trial version? That's my two cents.

Ive never had any problems with panda, never got any errors or anything...with nav, the thing i see the most is that it auto-protect becomes disabled and sometimes cant be started again with out uninstalling and reinstalling. i strongly recomend panda.

 

 

:rocks: PANDA RULES :rocks:

BBYtech587, you hit the nail right on the thumb!

 

...with nav, the thing i see the most is that it auto-protect becomes disabled and sometime cant be started again without uninstalling and reinstalling.

Thanks to all for the input.

 

And ain't it a shame that an entire industry has to be devoted to protecting something as incredible as the internet from the acts of a relatively few jerks fouling up things for millions of total strangers just to impress the rest of the Brotherhood of Jerks....

 

And if they win, what's left? A couple hundred spammers posting porn pop-ups to each other.

 

Sorry for the vent, but sometimes....

 

Thanks again, Poru

Most of what is to be said has already been said. But after having the same probles with NAV 2003 I went over to AVG and despite recent updates taking a few attempts, I have had no problems.

 

However, when fxing a problem of a different nature in my registry, I found 20 or so Symentec folders still in my registry which hadn't been removed from the NAV uninstall. this would probably account for NAV using alot of resources in comparison to others.

 

Give AVG a try, I did
