Panda Anti-Virus - Groupon deal.. Any good?

http://www.groupon.ie/deals/national...632267/.4ugQfI

This has popped up in the Groupon deals for today, Panda Anti-virus protection for 5 years for €9.80. A saving of over €160. My question is, is it any good? Will it cause any problems with my PC? My McAfee expired about a month ago and have been scanning with antimalware bytes every couple of days since but would like some sort of anti-virus protestion on it...

Any advice would be welcome.

Thanks

I use Comodo Firewall, Avast AntiVirus, Super AntiSpyware, & WinPatrol - All free & all very good security for your PC. I wouldn't bother paying for Panda - all of these are perfectly good & safe apps.

I would recommed running the Security Wizard here http://www.techsupportalert.com/cont...list-world.htm

Avast, Avira, Microsoft Security Essentials are all free.

Never heard of Panda and it doesn't even make it into the Antivirus / Antimalware Recommendation Thread.
