Panda Cloud Antivirus 2.0 has improved speeds

Virus protection is a must for all computers but the system load can be a killer - Panda Cloud is one possible solution.

Virus protection is a must for all computer users and in addition to the level of security that such software provides, it is also important to bear in mind the impact that such protection program can have on your system. It is all well and good having a program that protects you from every known virus, but there is little point in it if running the software causes your computer to slow to a crawl. Panda Cloud Antivirus Free 2.0 takes the strain off your computer by ensuring that all of the hard work is done for you in the cloud.

This in itself is nothing new, but version 2.0 of the program – available in both free and paid for varieties – there have been a number of changes, additions and enhancements that make this worth a second look if you have previously dismissed it. Probably the biggest change in this particular release sees the inclusion of the behavioral analysis engine that was previously only available to Pro users in the free edition of the software as well.

One of the highlights of the cloud-based antivirus tool is that fact that your computer is freed up to do other things. This is still the case in version 2.0, only more so as scans have been sped up even further. There is still a fairly major incentive to upgrade to the Pro version (currently $29.95). Not only with this grant you access to customer support, but it also includes a new firewall component. The free version of the program also includes a new USB immunization component that prevent flash drive based programs from running automatically – there’s also a process monitor that enables you to keep an eye on what is running in the background at all times.

As is becoming increasingly common, the installation of the software also includes a toolbar which claims to offers additional security options, as well as changing your search provider and start page. Thankfully, provided you take care during the installation process, it is possible to avoid these annoyances, leaving you with just the useful software you are interested in. If you can ignore this minor annoyance and concentrate solely on the protection aspects of the program, Panda Cloud Antivirus Free 2.0 is an impressive piece of kit.
