The internet plays a major role in the spreading of computer viruses, spyware and malware. ‘Malware’ stands for ‘malicious software’ which includes viruses, worms, adware, spyware and of course, the notorious Trojan horses. Spyware functions as a changer of the internet browser settings. Spyware misleads the internet browser to fraudulent sites, wherein huge number of frauds are accommodated and encouraged, which is called ‘phishing’. As a result, the computer starts functioning poorly and slowly.

Viruses damage the computer by deleting files, corrupting programs and applications, or sometimes reformatting the hard drive. Some viruses are self-copied to other drives or accessible disks, affecting the entire system and leading to a crash.

Panda Antivirus is designed to evict any kind of malicious item. It is easy to install, easy to operate and the biggest benefit is that it provides daily web updates. With Panda Antivirus installed in your computer, you can be sure of the fact that the shield is always on. Panda antivirus runs on both ‘windows XP’ and ‘windows Vista’.
