Panda Cloud Cleaner Description
Panda Cloud Cleaner is an anti-malware software application that uses Cloud technology to detect and eradicate any threats. The scan procedure is automatized, so user assistance is not necessary, meaning that Panda Cloud Cleaner can be used even by inexperienced individuals.
Once installed, you can perform a full scan on the computer. By using Collective Intelligence, Panda Cloud Cleaner is regularly updated with the latest virus definitions, in order to maximize security for your computer.
The main application window stays on top of other frames, but it can be minimized to the taskbar to allow normal user activity during scans.
Results show total found malware agents and PUPs (potentially unwanted programs), unknown files and suspicious policies, along with system cleaning possibilities. It is possible to get in-depth information for each of these categories, such as malware agent name and full path, broken Registry keys, and web browser traces (e.g. history, temporary Internet files, cookies). Panda Cloud Cleaner offers support for Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.
Applying disinfection is done with the click of a button. However, a system reboot is required for each action. Other advanced tools are dedicated to killing all processes, unlocking files, and sending items to Panda labs for further evaluation.
Panda Cloud Cleaner may take a while to complete a scan job, depending on the size of your hard drive. It has a good response time and uses moderate CPU and RAM. Unfortunately, it doesn’t provide the option of selecting the scan target (e.g. custom drive or directory) and type (e.g. quick).
Note that the application does not include a real-time guard, so you have to install an all-around antivirus product for full protection against web-based threats. Other than that, Panda Cloud Cleaner is pretty reliable when it comes to scanning and resolving infected machines.
