    Forgot to post a small but important detail :D

    Password for the Beta3 Preview ZIP is "CloudAV" without the quotes.

    Oh, now it's completely clear to me :D - so, is it recommended to manually uninstall the previously installed version, or will the installation take care of that by itself?

    When the computer is idle PCA does its BackgroundScan, which is similar to a full on-demand scan of the entire PC, so this should be normal. The first BackgroundScan after install is always the most resource intensive. Subsequent ones are much less intensive as they'll be only looking at changes, new files, etc.

    Does this still happen when it's not idle?

    You can either uninstall manually (and then reboot) or have the Beta3 installer perform the uninstall of the previous version.

    If you go the second route, keep in mind that you'll have to reboot and re-launch the Beta3 installer.

    This will be fixed once it comes out of Beta so its not as tedious :oops:

    No, now everything its fine 11MB for each one of the 2 process 0% CPU.
    I have seen the interface and its very basic i hope that in future versions this will be improved something like that http://www.symantec.com/norton/products/tutorials/tutorials.jsp?pvid=nis2010&tutid=norton_insight and some stadistical info if the database

    Panda cloud is compatible with any other antivirus?

    Sadly, no. At least before it's mentioned that PCAV is classified as an AV product - thus it can't run together with other AV software.

    This Beta3 Preview only includes 64bits and W7 support as we wanted to get specific feedback about these platforms.

    All other fixes and improvements which we are working on will be available with the official Beta3 release, around mid-late September :)
