    Go to software and there you will see security toolbar, uninstall it and you will keep the url scanning filter
    to test your url scanning with panda check this url http://www.cloudantivirus.com/testurlfilter/

    I loved the second iteration. It was effective, efficient and quiet. I haven't tried the latest version but judging by the comments regarding the upsell popups, I'd steer away from it.

    Don't worry, if you disable panda news option you won't see any ad popup.

    I almost skipped Panda because of these comments, I am glad that I didn't.

    Strange, what's the frequency? Could you post a picture of the ads?

    You can uninstall the toolbar and retain URL protection. At least that was said to be the case when I tried it some time ago.

    Yes indeed. I tested it via the link Spokesman gave me and it works very well. Blocked the page. :)

    Panda Cloud detected Zemana Antilogger Free as a threat. Not sure how correct it is but I like how quick it is at detecting possible threats. Love the lightness of it as well.

    There was one file Panda quarantined until finding out it was safe.

    So far I've only had luck installing VLC player. The other 4 or 5 programs I've tried installing would get detected as being suspicious. Which is fine if they really are.

    Apologies for the newbie question but how does Panda Cloud Free 3.0 differ from Panda Cloud Cleaner 1.0.103? I installed PCC 1.0.103 yesterday, scanned, it found PUP.Optional.Conduit.A, cleaned it, and then when I went to scan again I got a "Call Tech Support" (presumably Sales) message.

    Panda cloud cleaner is only to clean an infected system, Panda Cloud is a AntiVirus to protect you againt virusses and other malware.

    What I don't get is when I scan the exe files before opening them, Panda shows they are clean. It isn't until I get halfway through installing a program like wondershare media player that it will abort the process.

    Hello everyone,
    I contacted Panda Support because like many of you, I noticed that the Panda Antivirus 2015 line was released. Now, I have several licenses for Panda Cloud Antivirus PRO. I tried to uninstall Panda Cloud Antivirus Pro and install Panda Antivirus 2015 PRO and use my activation code. Howev, it didn't take. Well, I thought I'd check out my Panda Security Account (where all my licenses are stored) thinking Panda issued me a new activation code for the new 2015 PRO version. Well, interestingly, only ONE of the licenses was ugpraded to Panda Antivirus 2015 PRO - the rest of my licenses were for Panda CLOUD Antivirus. I contacted tech support by email to find out why only one of my licenses got upgraded to the new 2015 version? Shouldn't all the licenses be upgraded, and not just one, as long as they are active subscriptions? Well, they responded and informed me that Panda Cloud Antivirus is a separate thing from Panda Antivirus 2015.
    The Panda CLOUD Antivirus PRO gets updated by version number - like 3.01, 3.02, etc - they are not annual upgrades (yearly upgrades). From what I can gather this may be true, as I inquired as to why one license was upgraded to 2015 PRO, but not the rest.

    Here is the email Panda sent me:

    "Seems to be a bit of confusion with the applications going on here. "Cloud Antivirus Pro" and "Antivirus Pro" are 2 completely different products, the "Cloud" one is on version 3, the "Antivirus Pro" is one of the higher tier products that follows the yearly updates, the same as Internet Security, Global Protection, and GOLD Protection."

    Hahaha! I had a similar license experience with Panda support, at that time (this year) they did not know they had a Cloud version in their lineup :)
