Panda Fail

Quite a few years ago I used Panda Security for a year.  When the time came to renew I foolishly paid for a three-year subscription.  After about six months, the program began opening spam-type windows, slowing down my computer, and generally behaving badly.  With great effort I uninstalled the program.  And, after about a year of trying, I finally got rid of the spyware that continued to spam me as well as removing my e-mail address from their list.  My best guess is that all this happened about five years back.  I thought I had gotten past Panda fail.  Apparently I was wrong.

Until today when this arrived in my e-mail →

If there is a technology company with worse customer relations management, I don’t know who it is.
