So is there any benefit to enabling the background scan, or is it all negative?
Sadly, almost all software goes this route, eventually.....
We can hope. So far I'm liking 1.5, no problems to report yet whatsoever. I also haven't experienced the slow scan issue (neither on first full scan run or any afterward), and I have a lot of files.
How do I set behaviour blocking (and analysis) exclusions, and/or report those kinds of FPs?
The BackgroundScan is always on. If you are referring to the additional "BackgroundScan after cache synch" that's basically a scan of objects loaded in memory after a cache synch", similar to what other AVs call "quick/memory scan after each signature update"
There's no way to do that on the product yet other than disabling each engine individually. We can push down exceptions if you report them to firstname.lastname@example.org or post them at the support forum (www.cloudantivirus.com/forum).
Thanks for the detailed explanation
my netbook has version 1.4 and hasnt updated how come? how often does PCA check for updates?
If you installed 1.4 recently reboot once or twice and it should upgrade. The upgrade is performed during shutdown (like the Windows Updates).
If you reboot and you still don't get 1.5, please do let me know. We have a small % of users who are not upgrading and we need to troubleshoot one of those to find and fix the cause.
oh ok that makes sense because i only put my netbook to sleep not shutdown.
Thanks i didnt know that.
the cloudantivirus.com website should have a FAQ page.
Such an obvious and good idea.
Just woke-up to be prompted with an update.
What's the update? Why isn't the update automatic?
Under Home & Starter Windows OS Editions Cloud Antivirus prompts with a confirmation for the upgrade. This is because of limitations introduced by Microsoft on Home/Starter Editions of the OS. On the rest of OS flavours the upgrade is completely transparent.
So any performance impact would be very brief then would it not? And the cache synch occurs approximately how often on average?
Whether its light improvement or not depends on "when" it happens. If its during idle moments then its not visible. If its in the middle of usage then its pretty obvious improvement.
And it have not?

I second that - the scan is still slow compared to other AVs
My second full scan with Panda Cloud took 37 minutes. A good 40% faster than the original scan...
always after the first full scan the scans will be faster.
I decided to test Panda Cloud Pro (I have a key).
I have two questions:
1. Panda Cloud Pro provides users of x64 systems the same protection level protection (identical) to x86 systems?
2. I don't know if it has changed in this new version (1.5), but now no longer have the banner of the Community (remember that using the Pro version), it was removed?
He is great, is very light!
Sorry for my English!
Yes, same protection.
Yes as of 1.5 there's no more banners on the PRO version.
Thank you very much!
Wanted to let all companies had at least half of Panda's support.
Thanks, the problem is fixed, although I didn't get any replies.
Does anyone else but me still see the old slow boot issue with the 1.5?
After[/U] the welcome screen is seen and you hit enter it freezes circa 1-2½ minute to be in a state to use it. After this it's normal and light, however i might have to reboot when the boot have been very very slow ala 3 minutes (these random and a bit rare) as not all apps will load until after a reboot.
P.s. W7 64bit, 3ghz quad, 8Gb ram and an SSD, no other security tools than Hitman Pro.
I don't think this was answered. I don't doubt that it's true, but WHY? If an AV doesn't alert me to what it's about to quarantine and allow me to either approve it or "always ignore" it, then it's also a no-go for me.
that is why they included the exclutions for files and folders
