        In Panda Dome Antivirus (at least the free version anyway) there is no option to check for a newer version of the program.

        The the closest thing it has is an “about” tab that tells you the current version you are running.

        The version I am running is

        The Panda Security website doesn’t even specify the version number when you download the installer.

        Am I missing something? Or is finding out when a newer version of Panda Dome is available really just so much guesswork?

        It’s trialware/payware, and according to their website the trial is 1 month only. So it would not even update virus definitions after that time, and presumably newer versions wouldn’t either. Hence it becomes next to useless after the first month unless you want to pay for it.

        Windows’ inbuilt virus checker works perfectly well, and costs nothing.

HDDs (latest 5TB!), AnyDVD, Easeus ToDo Backup Home, Waterfox, more. Me: Aussie card-carrying Windows geek.

        If you scroll down to almost the bottom of this page, on the left you will see a section which says, “Are you familiar with our free tools?

        Here you will find a link to the free version of Panda Dome Antivirus:

        It doesn’t say specifically what version # it is and while I didn’t download it, when I clicked on the download link it says version 20.1

          I’ve never seen that link before, I always sign in to my account and download from there.

          Thanks for the help.
