Not as bad as Trend Micro, but just about. I specifically told Panda to not auto-quarantine items, but instead to ask about each instance.
Like other antivirus software, it now treats tracking cookies as an infection (which I hate, since it falsely tries to convince uninformed users about the importance of their antivirus software). This annoyed me, since there is no way to tell it to handle tracking cookies automatically, but ask about other issues.
The final straw was when it began declaring AutoPatcher a virus, and quarantining false positives… again, even though I specifically told it to not auto-quarantine anything.
Thanks for calling out what I suspected to be a fact for a long time. A lot of these programs like to flag stuff that hey know is either not worth notifying you about or something that the program can easily handle. It’s the whole, LOOK! SEE! Look how many risks you were taking and how much I am saving you! Some antivirus products are better than others when it comes to this, but it is a very unfortunate trend.
