    Any alternatives to Hitman Pro that are free that offer customization options (not Panda)?

    You can use Emsisoft antimalware as an on demand scanner (FREE).

    Looking for something cloud based for the best resource usage? Are there even other options that are cloud based besides Panda and Immunet?

    IMHO there is no replacement for Hitman Pro..I think you'll not get 6 Scanners in one package. :rolleyes:

    I think the only other 2 are TrendMicro Housecall & Emsisoft's Malaware. But i've never used either. Not sure if there are any others.

    I prefer Hitman Pro, and i haven't found anything similar.

    You also, off-course, have Prevx. I wonder if suggesting an on-demand version of Prevx (with removal), would be a good suggestion for their future changes wishlist? :)

    How about COMODO Cloud Scanner ?

    Online Armor Cloudscan and MalAware are the same I think.
    MalAware is a fast cloud scanner which only check's for infections, for removal you have to install the free (on-demand only) Emsisoft Anti-Malware.

    In my opinion COMODO Cloud Scanner is useless, since COMODO Antivirus sucks in general, how could their Cloud Scanner be worth using. MalAware will surely detect more.

    In general there aren't any alternatives to Hitman Pro. There ain't other multi-vendor quick cloud scanners for free (scan only + 30-day removal trial {which you should only activate at the moment you really need it to ensure maximal usage}). All the other cloud-scanners are just single-vendor. Except for Jotti and VirusTotal ofcourse, but that are totally different programs/sites.

    Hitman Pro is pretty much unique in it's category.I suppose Immunet Protect might mature into a real alternative but there's nothing else offering the depth of HMP yet.

    sadly its true, it adds x6 more Fp's, however ...

    if its used as its meant to be as a complimentary scanner to your existing protection, people should be able to discover whats-what with what it finds.

    LOL :D

    Indians are more intelligent i guess, that's why they don't keep malicious files in their system. In this way they are not only helping themselves but also helping other mass community. :p :D
