I bought a copy of this to replace my copy of Panda that came with the PC. I uninstalled Panda before installing Norton.
Now I get a warning message from Norton Protection Centre, that has a top line title of Urgent Attention....and an explanation mark beside the following statement...."Panda Antivirus Platinum 7 - Your computer is not protected against intruders.
Should I be concerned ? What does this message mean? What action should I take ?
Hi Awesome and 961. When I first looked at the experts-exchange site, it let me view the solution, but now it won't unless I pay. The solution involved removing some registry entries, so "removing remaining files and programme folders" may not be enough. I'll keep looking !
This is from click here quoting Panda support.What it fails to say is that you should always backup you system before editing the registry.
""Open the Registry from Start, Run, write REGEDIT, and click on OK. Highlight 'My Computer' at the top of the list, then go to 'Edit' and 'Find'. Type 'panda' into the box and then click on 'Find Next'. This will search the Registry for panda files. When it brings up a folder or file, press 'delete' or right-click on the highlighted file/folder and select 'delete' from the menu to remove it. Then press 'F3' to search again and find the next Panda entry.
Continue to search and delete Panda entries in the Registry until no more entries are found. Then repeat this process, this time searching for 'pav'. When both searches are complete, close the Registry and restart the computer.
Once this operation has been carried out, using Windows Explorer delete the Panda Software folder that is below C:\Program files. You should also delete the following files Windows \system: PAV.SIG, APVXD.VXD, APVXDUT.VXD, PANDA.CHP.""
