Panda Free Antivirus for Windows by Panda Security is any entry-level antivirus utility that focuses on its core antivirus engine, but also offers malware protection and other extras.

At the heart of the system are the scanning features. Users can access full system scans to find and destroy viruses and malware, as well as critical-only or custom scans. All scans are fast and simple, making it ideal for novice users not interested in becoming computer wizards. Additional control can be found, however, with configuration options that include the ability to scan a custom set of system locations or options to configure basic settings, or schedule scans to automatically run.

Panda Free also offers a real-time protection feature that will block unknown files from running until its validity can be verified via Panda's cloud service. The free version includes a cloud-based Hotspot Shield-based VPN with 150MB of data transfer a day.

Besides, Panda Free includes a Rescue Kit designed to remove more stubborn threats using a bootable USB drive, or by accessing Panda's Cloud Cleaner utility. A Built-in USB protection feature can also keep USB drives protected from auto-run malware.

Lastly, Panda Free includes a Process Monitor module that tracks processes running on your system. The module records information about processes such as their security status, their digital signatures, when they first appeared on the system, where they were downloaded from, and how many HTTP connections they have open.

Easy to use with a slick interface, making it ideal for novice computer users.
