I apologize if I am to say this, but I found this system tool to be a bit too much in terms of system resource consumption for my dual-core laptop, which is definitely NOT below minimum specs. Also, tech support really tends not to help very much or at all for problems I experience with the program itself. It seems that it may very well be a trait of an organization that has affiliations with other big players, but due to that whole mess with powerful global organizations, it may very well be best to see for myself what really is best for security purposes. Besides, while I respect WOT for being part of my verification for pages (yes, I use other sources for page background checks alongside it, believe it or not...), I for one am glad that using WOT does NOT bind users to installing Panda, correct me if I'm wrong.

I am deeply saddened by my own report. Panda is a WOT partner. I tried their online scanner for a trial run yesterday. I just reinstalled my OS, already have good protection, but it is Panda, right?
After a two hour plus scan, they told me I had 13 "infections" The biggest target file was a known file to me in my SW folder, an sp driver I downloaded from HP specifically for my computer for Quickplay. They labeled it as a "latent trojan" technically speaking your entire computer is a latent trojan. The file was and is safe.
The other viruses were browser tracking cookies and bookmark files to EBay and BestBuy. These were also deemed latent trojans, and were only removable with the paid version of he program? I have lost all respect for Panda as a company, and because of the partnership, I now question WOT itself.
