    I read about Immunet Cloud AV tool on Kreb's blog.

    Immunet says it can very well work with another AV side-by-side.

    When I enabled verbose notification in Settings, I could see pop-up flashing every now and than that a trusted file has been downloaded to a folder.

    Sometimes, ESET SmartSecurity is alerting that a file is a potentially dangerous application.

    I want to know why Immunet is downloading these files. Are these signatures?

    But Immunet documentation says it is a Cloud scanning tool.

    Cloud scanning tool means, that it based on users feedback, if to speak about Immunet. If most people said, that this or another file is safe, then Immunet takes it as safe file. That's the problem.
    As much as there are people, there are also opinions.

    That article shown at the beginning of the video is dated January 2011.

    FYI: There is a more informative Immunet thread here...
