avast! & Panda
« on: July 03, 2010, 05:40:58 PM »
I've read that Panda Cloud av can now be run along side any av.

So far, Panda Cloud Free is quietly & smoothly along side avast! 5 Free.

What happens if they both detect a virus at the same time ???

What happens if Immunet & avast! 5 both detect a virus at the same time ???

I only have avast! 5 & Panda Cloud Free on my system.

Now? Some time ago it wasn't compatible...

There is always a problematic issue when two residents detect and block virus... They could conflict.

Yes, Indeed I uninstalled Panda Cloud on my Vista PC with great trouble and I'm having a hell of a bad time uninstalling Immunet 2 from my XP PC since Legacy registry items drivers are undeletable. Am trying to redownload/uninstall again, just in case. Cloud AV are AV so you decide:Avast or them!!! :D

I have never been a convert of cloud AVs of any flavour, perhaps being a dial-up user I have concerns about the bandwidth it uses, despite some assurances it is minimal (on dial-up you are already working on minimal).

My other concern and especially so with Panda, it's on-line AV scanner version was a pain in the ar** dumping unencrypted signatures in system folders and it doesn't seem like they have gotten out of the unencrypted signatures habit with the cloud scanner either. The only change seems to be they now place them in memory for avast to detected depending on the users avast settings and scan choice.

You need to get property of the registry keys.
I do with the old Registrar Lite 2.0 application. It became a shareware now, changed its name, but the old and good works like a charm. I can delete legacy keys.
Oh, you need to run with admin rights :)

I was just taking Panda Cloud for a test drive.

I have uninstalled Panda Cloud, no problem uninstalling

& seems a clean removal.

I'm very happy with avast! 5. :)

I'm doing my best to ignore the ugly "a" ball. ::)

I've never found the legacy keys to cause any problems so I don't worry about them. The drivers they point to are never present on the system any more in my experience.

My concern with using a cloud AV like Panda, even though PCMag now rates it as the best of the free products in infection prevention, is that what happens if the cloud servers go offline? That could occur due to technical or hardware problems, power outages, or targeted attacks by hackers. You would have no protection if it happened.

There are redundancy and backup, but you can have a blackout of security.

I use a paid cloud AV (PrevX) with no issues working along side Avast.  However I agree with Tech, that you need to have off-line back up with an on-demand scanner(s) as a just in case scenerio.   I also believe in a layered protection of security as long as you don't over do it and have software conflict.

I'm not an advocate of Panda Cloud, but it is good to have a wide variety of FREE av's, fw's, as's & other security apps.

I like to keep informed & sometimes try other security softwares.

That said, Panda Cloud does have off-line protection, I don't know the extent of it.

Panda's forum can't be read without joining. ::)
