I have been a long time user of Avast anti virus, and have tried on different occasions Microsoft Security Essentials, Avira, and very briefly, AVG. I was looking at something unrelated to anti virus software but happened upon an ad for Panda Cloud Free AV. Many different places rated it very high among the better free programs out there, and having been a very happy customer with Avast I went back and forth deciding on trying this. I finally gave in and downloaded/installed it and removed Avast. It seems to be working just fine. I like the simplicity of the interface, and wanted to get the input of others here to see what they think of it. I don't see too many mentions of it.

In simple terms, Cloud computer refers to having programs and data reside on an outside network device instead of permanently on your local hard drive. In theory it turns your browser into a flexible smart terminal and the main program you execute. The program you run and data you store is somewhere else on the planet similar to the old concept of a main frame.
