Windows Defender tells me "Actions needed by Panda Firewall". What's that about?

Postby ricecrispies » Mon, 06 Nov 2017, 00:30

I am using Panda free. I use it for the antivirus. I never told it to be my firewall. I'm not even sure it can be a firewall because I can find absolutely no settings in Panda Free to do with a firewall. However Windows Defender is now showing an alert saying "Actions needed by Panda Firewall". What is that about? There is a link to "Open Panda Firewall", but it does nothing. Do I actually have a firewall running at all? I mean, does the firewall with Panda Free exist? If it does, how can I configure it? And if it doesn't, how can I get the Windows firewall back?

dear client,

Panda firewall is not active on the free version.
I am afraid that if the message is given by microsoft, you will have to setup the WSC not to give you notices about panda firewall, and let the system use the windows defender firewall.

I have checked in the security and maintenance control panel and it says that Windows firewall is on and the Panda firewall is off, but how do I instruct Windows to stop giving me the false alert? I can't find a setting for that anywhere. I need to sort this out so that I don't mistake a real problem for a false one.

Yo have to tell the OS not to give you anymore messages about firewall.

Thanks for your reply.

I think that wouldn't be a good solution. I want to have alerts about the firewall if there really is a problem, just as I was alerted a few weeks ago when the antivirus stopped working due to a failed software update. Therefore I have uninstalled Panda and installed a different antivirus.

Hello Panda Team,
this can't be the end of the story!
I've the same issue but the Windows Defender Security Center tells me that the Windows Defender Firewall isn't aktive because there's another firewall provider. I can't activate the Windows Defender Firewall. The Windows Defender Firewall Service is running.
By the way, the Windows Defender Security Center can't get a status for Panda Protection.
So, some issues to integrate Panda Protection into the Windows dender Security Center.

Can you please tell me what to do? I wouldn't like to look for another virus protection again.

Thanks
Rolf

Excuse me? "Being free" is not a pass granting Panda the right to break security on a system where the only object of the exercise is to increase security using Panda. I, too, have this issue. I suspect many more will have already abandoned Panda at the first hint of things like this going wrong.

This response seems completely irresponsible. Allowing a bug like this to stand in your free version is not going to aid Panda's reputation and will undoubtedly damage uptake of your commercial offerings.

I will be replacing Panda because of a callous lack of concern about users whose computers have been seriously compromised. I will also no longer recommend it to my network of contacts, who look to me for advice. If I spot any only reviews of this product, I will also be adding comments warning that it breaks Windows 10 firewall and is to be avoided.

Good grief!

I have the same question, I would like to know if windows 10 has a built-in firewall, in addition to whether I still need to install Panda Free Antivirus?

I have solved this problem, Panda Free Antivirus is really a very useful anti-virus software.
