Both are real-time antivirus.

How would it work out with them both running at once? Threatfire on top of all other antiviruses work well, would Panda Cloud be the same?

I currently have Microsoft Security Essentials, but wanna add Panda Cloud if it won't slow my comp down to an unbearable speed :thumbsup:

As I understand it...a cloud system runs from the Internet, it's not a real-time system which is installed and remains resident on the computer in the same way that any standard AV program does.

I've run one of the cloud systems (earlier this year, as an experiment) while I still had my resident Avira AV running...I had no problems.

From what I've read...use of the cloud system as a primary AV is not necessarily encouraged.

To be honest...I see no reason to move away from conventional installation of an AV program that I could rely on. You would probably have to consult the Panda website for more data/info on use, how it works, etc.

MSE is a convetional antivirus ;) Downloads & Installs the files. I'll install panda cloud on top of it, since it takes like no ram.

Panda Cloud Antivirus Explained

With Panda Cloud Antivirus we introduce a new protection model based on a thin-client agent & server architecture which services malware protection as opposed to locally installed products.

I used Prevx before Webroot bought it; then used Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete on my main computer and on two relatives' computers  We all use some free malware application, including a standard antivirus.  I would assume that Panda works same. I can test it. My main computer is XP Pro SP3; I did a reinstall because I moved my Webroot to my Vista computer plus some other paid security apps. I now have Avast Free whch has some major conflicts with Sandboxie, Sandboxie,  SpywareBlaster, the native firewall. (I decided since I had to give up XP April 8 I'd do a fresh install and test some security and other apps I had'nt in long time. Tried free ZoneAlarm; it irritated me; Private Firewall irritated me too; Free AVG always hyping upgrade)

 

So I will uninstall Avast, install MSE and Panda. I want to know too.

avast! Free Antivirus does not include the full Sandbox module or SafeZone enhancements. If you launch avast!, click on the Tools button on the left...there are greyed out options for Sandbox, SafeZone and Firewall. Enabling these features requires upgrading to avast! Premier or Internet Security. Not sure how the free version would be conflicting with Sandboxie since it is disabled.

Anyway...I see no problem with switching to MSE + Panda.
