    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    No, I haven't Bob. I just saw a link to it on another forum and posted it her for info purposes. I want to look into the possible conflicts, if any, associated with running this along with my installed Avast AV software or if I have to disable or uninstall it before going to "cloud" AV. I'll have time later today.

    If you jump in, please chime back with any opinions/thoughts/problem. Thanks.

    Had a quick look at their FAQs and first blush is that it's not ready for prime time.

    Interesting read, Robin.
    Of course, you have to temper the fact that it's on a competitor's forum and may be somewhat biased.
    However, I DO think I'll hold off using Panda's Cloud for now.

    Robin thank you for posting this link--even tho it is written from the point of view of Avast-- from which I quote the following;

    "...The "Cloud" has been hyped during recent years by all sorts of individuals and firms, but the cloud-bubble will burst somewhere during 2010, according to VRT's Matthew Watchinski*, known from opensource IDS/IPS Snort. In 2009 the Cloud has been plagued by various problems likes Twitter that went offline, loss of T-Mobile SideKick data, the disastrous Amazon's EC2 uptime and Gmail outings. "These problems form a trend for all upcoming services to deal with", says Watchinski. The next round will be the abuse of the Cloud for malicious purposes, something we experienced already with EC2* and Twitter* being used as command & control channel for botnets. ..."

    I will take a pass on this as I already use Avast and am a happy camper.
    Take a sad song and make it better
