If you find that regular antivirus programs use up too many of your system resources, give Panda Free Antivirus a try. Its cloud-based approach takes the load off your PC during scans.

Are you looking for a discreet antivirus tool? If so, look no further than Panda Free Antivirus (formerly Panda Cloud Antivirus). This free virus scanner uses cloud processing to protect your PC - no more demanding scans or large updates. This collective intelligence should lead to more harmful programs being detected whilst using only a tenth of the system resources. 

Load Panda Free Antivirus directly onto a memory stick and use it for multiple computers. Connected USB sticks will also be checked for viruses automatically.


Why you need Panda Free Antivirus

You might not realise at first, but Panda Free Antivirus begins scanning as soon as it's installed to ensure your PC is protected immediately. You can also perform three types of manual scan: full, critical areas, and custom.

 The suite's other tools include a process monitor, which lets you see active processes and whether they are using a secure connection. Processes that don't are blocked, but you can undo this manually if you're confident it's safe.

There's also a handy vaccination tool that checks attached USB drives for malicious software. We recommend changing the settings so it runs automatically to pick up any threats as soon as possible.

If one of your PCs has been locked by a malicious program, Panda Free Antivirus can create an emergency rescue USB drive that you can use to scan the affected machine. This feature uses Panda Cloud Cleaner – a specialist scanner that detects viruses and malware other scanners might miss.

All of of these options are presented in a clear dashboard, with moveable tiles that you can customize to suit your preferences or remove if you never use a particular feature.
