I recently installed Panda Dome (Panda Free Antivirus) on my Vista desktop. It's great. My sidebar loads quickly now. It was a pain with Avast before.

 

However Panda Dome keeps creating a lot of temp files in Windows/Temp folder, all of them with a size of zero bytes. On occasion I have to delete them. Is this a familiar behaviour with Panda?

There isn't a satisifed answer.

That is an older topic but it appears others have reported the same issue. I agree the Mod did not provide any explanation.

Maybe it is time to start a new topic and ask the question again.

Panda doesn't create thousands of 0KB tmp files -as mentioned in the link- on my system. But at least 20-30 files a day. Maybe there is an improvement implemented. :rolleyes:

After coming back home from vacation, I tried to register for Panda Forums. No success. There is no confirmation code generated. Somehow it's not possible to register.

 

The main reason I wanted to register was another problem this time. Panda Dome (Free Antivirus) crashes every ten minutes. There are XP and Vista users reporting same problem. PSUAService stops/crashes every ten minutes:

Time to search for another free antivirus for my Vista? Not sure yet.

Panda seems to have solved the problem with PSUAService.exe. I think it was a server side problem. I'll stick with Panda Dome for now. Thanks.
