Panda 2008 Internet Problems

  1. Hi
    Upon installing panda 2008 and at the end of the installation when it says start protection now, i press finish and the internet access just gets blocked (panda even gives an error saying it can't update) and i know this is correct because when i uninstall panda access is restored....

    Windows Vista Home Premium

    thx

    Check that the edition of Panda you have is OK for Vista. You may have to download an update as part of the install process - check the Panda site before you try to install again.

    Could you check if the Panda installation has stopped the vista firewall so that only one firewall is running?

    No luck still blocking internet and i have attached a screen shot (i had to uninstall panda to do this so security center says 'No antivirus') but the firewall stayed the same throughout

    I'm beginning to think that as this is a demo copy you should cut your losses and try something else. What about kaspersky?
