Thanks for the 'heads-up' anuraag. I have two questions re updating v1.5.1:
- Do we have to update manually or will it occur automatically?
- If manually, can v1.5.2 be installed over v1.5.1?

Thanks for the update pbust, great job!
My installation of Panda has been reporting for a few weeks now that many(most) attempts to synchronize with the cloud fail. It has not synchronized for more than 4 days.
I posted about this in the Panda Cloud forum and I didn't get any responses that made me feel any better....I was told that this synchronization was only needed when I was offline.
If Panda cannot call home when it needs to synchronize is their any reason I should believe that Panda will be able to call home when it needs to check the signature of a potential virus?
Any thoughts would be appreciated. I expect that if I don't learn something that makes me feel secure about this situation I will try to uninstall/reinstall, or possible try the Beta 1.9 version which I have been trying on a virtual environment.
Have you tried with the new version 1.5.2 yet? Download and install it from www.cloudantivirus.com as this version includes some of the synch fixes.
Also the synch process has nothing to do with the cloud-scanning process. To check if the cloud-scanning process is working simply download the PandaCloudTestFile from http://research.pandasecurity.com/panda-cloud-test-file/
Thank you for the rapid response.
I tried the test file and it was instantly neutralized.....that makes me feel better. I will also go ahead and install the 1.5.2 version.
where can i see what for version i have installed?!
Open Panda and click on ? then click on About
? is in the upper right hand corner.
I'm still waiting for the auto-upgrade
I got it yesterday. Went fine.
I might go back to panda. I don't like the fact shadowdefender and comodo killswitch won't run while having WSA installed. That might be enough to send me back into the panda's arms. Hows 1.5.2 running?
1.5.2 running without me even noticing
Soft and cool
SD and PCAV (v1.5.1 and now v1.5.2) seem to love each other.
Yeah I know. I think I might change back. I think that WSA is slightly lighter than panda but not by much. I do hate the fact that I can't use killswitch or shadowdefender. Not that I use either a lot but its the principle. I hate software that restricts other software.
Still on 1.5.1 here, when will the update be completely send out to all users?
Why wait? - just download and install it (you will first have to uninstall v1.5.1).
Waiting makes all this unnecessary. The process is very smooth.
Back to what works.
Is version 1.5.2 compatible with Windows 8 Customer Preview?

That's why, a lot easier than uninstalling 1.5.1, rebooting, installing 1.5.2 with toolbar to get URL filtering, uninstall toolbar and remove toolbar traces from browsers.
