After releasing Panda Cloud Antivirus 1.9.2 beta in the first week of June, Panda has just updated its popular Panda Cloud Antivirus software to v2.0 with support for Windows 8. The newest version of Panda ships with some new and enhanced features.
In addition to dozens of bug fixes and minor improvements, Panda Cloud Antivirus 2.0 incorporates new cloud-based disinfection system, new user interface, improved offline protection, new behavioral analysis engine (which was previously been only in Pro), and improved performance. Existing Panda users (v1.9.2 beta and 1.5.2) users are eligible for free upgrade to the latest version.
As you may know, a Pro version of Cloud Antivirus is also available with advanced features. It includes anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-rootkit, behavior analysis, firewall, process monitor, PC vaccination, USB device vaccination, and cloud-based collective intelligence and is extremely light of system resources.
If you are a free version user and want to protect your PC with the advanced features available in the Pro version, you have a chance to use the Pro version for absolutely free for the next six months.
The Pro version is generally available for US $29.99 but here is a chance to get Panda Cloud Antivirus with 6 months subscription for free. Visit this Panda Cloud Antivirus Pro Facebook page and then click the like button to download the installer.
In addition to Windows 8, Panda 2.0 also supports Windows XP SP2 (32-bit), Vista (32-bit & 64-bit) and Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit) operating systems. Please note that the Panda Cloud Antivirus Free version (and not PRO) setup offers you install Panda toolbar, and sets Google as your search provider and also sets MyStart as your default home page.
