Panda Antivirus GUI front-end

This is a graphical user interface (GUI) for the free Panda Antivirus Command-Line scanner (PAVCL). Using the Panda Antivirus GUI, anyone can easily scan and remove malware, spyware, dialers and hacking tools from your computer. This free little tool allows configuring the scan, updating the signature database, selecting what you want to scan and launch the scan without any difficulty.

However, the installer does not include a signature file (pav.sig) for size reasons. You can download a free signature file from the developer’s page. However within the PAVCL GUI utility you can enter your registered Panda Customer ID to download updated signatures on-demand.


Using this tool is simple. Download the installer (2.45Mb) from http://research.pandasecurity.com and install it. (Supports Windows XP only and required .NET frame work 2 installed on your PC). Download and unzip the signature file (pav.zip). Copy and paste this signature file (pav.sig) in to pav installed directory (normally C:\\ pav). Click on Pavcl GUI to launch the application.

From the configuration window you can select all the options which are available through command-line switches. Also you can define where to write the report to.

Note that, this freeware utility is not affiliated with nor supported by Panda Security.
