Useful things


I recently switched to another Anit-Virus solution, because the one I've used before became more and more bloated with every version. At the same time test results (e.g. at or dropped rapidly, so I've decided to switch my antivirus solution to Panda Cloud Antivirus.

Panda Cloud Antivirus is based on Collective Intelligence, a system that continuously collects and analyzes viruses and other threats gathered from the community of millions of Panda users around the world.

So far I am very satisfied with this software, especially because of:

  • it is very light, no more bloated software packages
  • no custom user interface to fiddle with (you know... those 5+ level deep menu structures you easily get lost in)
  • in fact you basically just turn it on or off
  • it is cloud-driven, that's why it is so light
  • basic version is free

One minor problem affected my system though - the background scanner was not working the way it should resulting in CPU usage spikes especially noticeable during gaming sessions. I did not find much informations about this specific problem, but I guess it's related to my system, and no common problem.

In case you actually do run into the same trouble, I've prepared two simple registry files for enabling/disabling background scanning by just double-clicking the according .reg file.

Don't worry about your system being less secure when turning off the background scan though. On-the-fly scanning still performs well, when you open a file, website or anything else.

 Finally, the two registry files for you to download:
{jd_file file==58}

And again, in case you've missed to click the link - give it a try: Panda Cloud Antivirus
