10. Panda Antivirus 2012:

Panda Antivirus makes it to 10th spot in our top 10 Antivirus programs of 2012. With a good malware detection and removal performance it’s a pretty good choice for the pc users.

But Panda antivirus has its own cons. It doesn’t thoroughly clean all found malware. After removal of the malwares certain rootkits still keep running in the system. And also it doesn’t have a good protection against new malware attack. The Safe Browser is a bit bulky and pretty awkward to use.

If the Panda Antivirus can improve in its malware blocking and put some good effort into the overview it’s sure to be a contender for top 5 spot, but until then Panda Antivirus 2012 is good to be at number 10.
