Automatic updates

 

Panda Antivirus Pro 2010 can update automatically so you won't have to do anything. After you install the product, it updates automatically the first time it detects an open Internet connection. However, for them to continue taking place in the future you must activate the product.

 

If you have activated the product, it will update automatically whenever necessary, provided your PC is connected to the Internet.
 

Automatic updates are enabled by default, and you should not disable them as this will leave your PC unprotected against new threats.
