There's no way to directly migrate data between service providers

Well, that's exactly why my data is sitting on my own hard drive, backed up and all. The few files that are currently needed for work are duplicated on my home computer, my laptop and my work computer, so that's a cloud of sorts, but at least no provider is involved. How much data does one have anyway to actually need the cloud? And how do you decide to trust some company with your data? How about your bank statements? Keep them in the cloud as well?

IMHO cloud computing is unsafe. Your email is cloud and how many time do you read that thousands have been cracked. How many times has it been reported that YouTube and sites like that have been hit by the bad boys and all kinds of personal information taken, they are also cloud computing. When your personal information is stored on some ones computer other than the ones you have control over that's a cloud to me.You have to trust their security and their for you have no control.

If you are asking about Malwarebytes Anti Malware; it's one of the best. I have use it for a long time and it has served me well. They have a paid for version and a free one, you choose. Keep in mind that many people don't know their personal information is in a cloud. Their cell phone, computer ect. is in a cloud. On a computer Ipod, cell phone ect. others have control of the security. If by chance you mention that to a user they will tell you they don't care. Or you will hear a OOOO Well until they get hit.

I lot of people like Malwarebytes.

I use Avast AIS, Windows Defender and SuperAntispyware in real-time and Malwarebytes in on-demand mode. All three of the real-time programs have caught bad stuff both in real-time and in scheduled and/or one time scans. I use Malwarebytes Quick Scan once or twice a week in the on-demand mode and on-demand Full Scan about once a month and it has never caught anything for me in the on-demand mode.

Just my experience.

When it starts catching stuff in the on-demand mode that my real time programs are missing then I will purchase the real-time version of Malwarebytes.
