Well we use the corporate version for LAN connected workstations and Panda
Platinum for standalones.  They have this really nice admin software that
auto updates all the client computers that connect to the LAN (auto script
generation during login to the domain).  I would wager to say that a
secretary with absolutely know network knowledge could install it very
easily because it has an auto network discovery feature too. I think it does
Novell farms too. One thing that I did notice is that it is not so memory
hungry as compared to Norton's av.  The platinum version also has a firewall
that can be setup anyway you like.  During active scanning of the email if a
virus is found it don't trash the email but cleans it and inserts a text
similar to this:

############################################################################
#########
# Panda Antivirus Platinum warning
#	The file    was infected by the virus Exploit/URLSpoof and has been
disinfected
############################################################################
#########

So the email is still there just lets you know that it had bugs.  I think it
will even send an email notify too.. If viruses are found.. Which can be
easier to discover which client pc was infected with what in the farm.

I have yet to have a system or network go down since I've installed it a few
years ago.

Hth,
