Thanks, Viktec
It seems to me that with my always on dsl connection, I would never need the offline function.

MSE can be used side by with avast!... possible this can be used along side as well... try it and find out and post back... then you can test Panda Cloud to see if it picks up something that MSE doesn't... GL

The potential problem is malware finds a way on to your system, takes it offline and now your cloud based product is blind. That's why it's necessary to have the ability to scan effectively offline. If the AV doesn't have it then you need to supplement.

You beat me to it. Cloud protection may not be a bad idea in addition software installed on your machine but if you are taken offline???????

Some of those reviews havent been updated in 6 years. They are reviewing what pays the best. The more money the higher the rateing. I mean really Norton internet security 2008 is #4 on the list of best products???

PC Mag...0 credability!

Not sure what you mean by not updating their reviews. Is it necessary for them to go back to the 2008 review of Norton Internet Security and say something like "two years have passed folks and what we said about NIS 2008 no longer applies"...? Don't we already know that? Reviews are only relevant at the time and in the context in which they're written.

Your statement that the reviews are biased by money is simply wrong IMHO. I've read the security software reviews for years and while I don't always agree with them I don't see the advertisers getting a free pass. I find it more useful to discuss the details of specific reviews instead of writing off the whole web site.

I have used Panda Cloud anti virus and was very satisfied. The only problem is that it doesn't have some basic settings that every AV should have.

The main problem I had with Panda is that i couldn't find a way to add exclusions list etc. that makes thing very annoying because the software I work for always used have issue with Panda AV Cloud and Registration. Mostly it breaks the online registrations. Only way I used to get around is remove Panda AV and then register the program. Seems like it blocks all the TCP Port that most of the programs use to register.

I know. It's like I have no control over anything. I'm back to MSE.

Thanks for clearing that up, Victek. I didn't think about malware taking me off line. Makes perfect sense to me now. I'm still running Panda on my wireless laptop at home, but I'm back to MSE on my main pc. Panda Cloud did find one thing. It turned out to be Real Player trying to run scheduler or something.
