I'm not sure but it seems very good. It has a firewall built in too. You get the platinum edition for a year and it seems to update once a day so yeah.

I've never had any viruses but figured it would be wise to start using one.

free is NOT always good... you will be screaming if the free program screws up your system.

there is another AV called Avant... when I tried to run it in Windows 2000, it would lock up my system... sure, it was free, but it was NOT good.

This program normally isn't free...

They are just giving out free 1 year subscriptions as a promotion.

Incase it means anything to you, I dunno, it might for some here. Panda software's owner is a member of Scientology, with report donations of upwards of 100000 dollars.

Personally I don't trust any group who would seek charges against an individual because they were protesting outside their compund and making some rather humorous comments about them over usenet, but you can make your own decisions in that regard. Check out http://freehenson.da.ru

I run 2 AV's just to make sure. Not all AV's will find everything. So find a couple that you like and run them both.
The 2 I have are Norton (came with the machine so why not) and AVG.
