Panda Cloud Antivirus is the first free cloud-based antivirus thin-client. It consists of a lightweight antivirus agent that is connected in real-time to PandaLabs' online Collective Intelligence servers to protect faster against the newest malware variants while barely impacting PC performance. Thanks to Panda Security's Collective Intelligence malware and goodware online database, Panda Cloud Antivirus detects more malware than traditional signature-based solutions which take longer to detect the most recent, and therefore most dangerous, variants. Panda Cloud Antivirus protects you while you browse, play or work and you won't even notice it. It is extremely light as all the work is done online in the cloud. Panda Cloud Antivirus provides you with the fastest protection against the newest viruses thanks to its cloud-scanning from PandaLabs' servers. Panda Cloud Antivirus is truly install and forget. Don't worry about updates, configuration or complicated decisions ever again.

    Absolute garbage. Thought I had a winner regarding speed and performance until I did manual scans... Partial selected folders or full scans... Always hung up at 99% done. Even a repair installation didn't help. A Google search shows I ain't the only one to come across this glowing flaw. Also, no pop ups when I click a known infected file(but harmless nonetheless). The file does fail to load however, but that is it. Nothing else. No query to clean, repair, etc... Absolutely nothing, so it's absolutely pointless to even try this POS any further.

    If I could give 0 stars, I would.

    ive read the reviews, and they seem to agree that this works best to maintain a clean system, less so to clean an already-infected one.
    i use it on a couple low-end laptops that don't get used much. best features are that it auto-updates even major versions, and virus defs update on the fly (no more 30MB downloads after only a month of inactivity). i'm impressed.

    Update: Have used several versions for last few months and it seems to work. Haven't done any testing against malware but it doesn't slow my computer noticeably or use too much memory. Will try to test against possible malware but I don't normally purposefully search for such things.

    Just a warning ... I had a BSOD and the message was related to psinprot.sys which is panda av related. Will be uninstalling to be safe. Maybe I'll try again in the future ... can't risk damaging my new machine.

    Reviewing 1.9.1 Beta (Aug 18, 2011)

    Downloaded, installed, and though there were no errors or other problems, this "lightweight" a-v program made my system come to a crawl. Admittedly, the system I tried it on was not one of my four core machines, but a single core Athlon 2200+ [this should be a good test for something lightweight!].

    The system was slower and much more sluggish than with the Avira 10 Free version I had removed, so, with a few hours of trying, off it cam and back to Avira 10 Free, which allows the machine to be snappier all the time - including when the full system scan is running.
