The Bear Turns Nasty

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Alasdair Baxter, Mar 22, 2005.

  1. I've just installed Panda Total Internet Security on one of my
    computers. It has caused havoc. I cannot uninstall it. My computer
    has seized up. When I call the Panda support line on their premium
    rate number, it costs a fortune to be talked through what involves
    editing the registry.

    I am not a happy bunny and wonder if anybody else had these problems
    with Panda.

    Hello Alasdair,

    I am in the same Boat, not an Expert when comes to Registries.

    What I would doin Your case, first create a Restore Point with
    System Restore, if You have that option" Then use Add/Rem.
    program from Windows,
    then look in my Computer's Folders and clean anything with Panda's
    Name on it, and leave the rest. Or follow the instructions on the
    above Link.
    Hope this Helps.

    Sadly, Panda says that using System Restore is useless and the only
    way out is via the registry editing. I think Panda should be reported
    to the consumer protection authoirities

    Why?

    Less whinging and more editing of your registry would be the answer,
    here.
