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.

all right everyone so a lot of you complained in the last Panda free antivirus video that I didn't run panda cloud clean at first that it's a more advanced scanner and I should have ran it well I didn't because it was realistically a video about panda free antivirus not paying a cloud cleaner so I'm gonna make a video about Panda Cloud Cleaner we're gonna see if it can do any better than panda free antivirus my personal prediction is not going to that is because this virtual machine was created back in April and it is now December so let's go ahead before this ransomware starts to attack my virtual machine and install this advanced scanner here so we're gonna go ahead and run the installer here that is a whopping 33 megabytes so that's pretty good as you can see we are going to install it fairly quick all right so we're gonna go ahead and launch panda here so far everything's gone very smoothly very impressed with the installation very easy to understand all right so what we got here we have some advanced tools up here in which we can kill all processes and unblock files as well as send a file to panda for analysis we go down here to Advanced Options you can see we have what's called a trusted boot this is kind of from what I understand like Avast boot time scanner but a little bit more advanced and it also tells you that that right down here that's for advanced to users really Stickley only and we're probably going to go ahead and jump right into that just because this virtual machine is so infected all right then we have an acceptance scan button right down here with some additional options we can just analyze your PC or analyze other elements so first of all I really am curious to see if this kill all processes is actually gonna work so we're gonna do that and click start and so far I'm not really seeing anything in the way of process killing Xplorer is still open let's see can we get a task manager hey ok so task manager is still not working we can still get to explore so I didn't kill explore dot exe all right so what we're gonna do now is let's go ahead and try this trusted boot here we're gonna go right into that okay up to three PC reboots might be needed to complete the process sure why not so we'll click ok acceptance can okay so that's apparently doing this setup right here trusted at boot setup well everyone this does not bode well for panda cloud cleaner so far because it looks as if it's frozen up can we close it close window no I can't close it oh here we go so now that just took a lot longer than you need to wow the system must be restated before boot time scan all right restart now let's do this so apparently he had to install some additional objects and within the system here in order to perform his boot time scan it did not appear to be downloading them I want that to be noted there it looked as if they were must have already been incorporated somewhere within the installation itself so that's nice that you don't have to read download or download additional items so suppose we is rebooting right now I'm gonna go ahead let it reboot if anything pops up or when we get into the interface of the boot time scanner I will come back and we'll take a look at that so see in a bit so it appears as if the PC is frozen so we're gonna go ahead and have to do a hard reset and hope that the boot time scanner will actually boot up here so let's see what's going on alright everyone so after I rebooted I have been presented with this so it looks like it's doing something for some sort of a quick scan so it's probably going through the boot or analyzing the boot that it did now in a sense finding everything we'll see in a minute what the results are if it's gonna have me remove things and then reboot again is what I'm assuming is gonna happen so then therefore it has a boot that is trusted in its mind that is a clean boot so we're gonna go ahead and see maybe in a little bit here it's gonna it's gonna work fast or slow and user always told me if you say it's going fast it's gonna slow down maybe user has some some lot right so it looks like it is now gathering cloud results here hopefully this won't take too long but it could take a few moments of saying thank you for being so vague not even a few seconds or a few minutes no no a few moments it's like it has to consult the boss or something here boss what do we do with the system I don't know just destroy it it's toast that's what I would do if I was consulting if I was the cloud mad his system is pretty infected so that's realistic Lee what the best approach would be all right so it looks as if it has found ten pieces of Mauer and then it also has found some unknown files here 36 of 16 elements cleaned a 33 how do you clean 33 of 16 there's only 16 how can you get 30 I don't understand that okay so let's take a look at what it's found here specifically a couple of fake a visa look at our fake AV trash file suspicious potential on program of a broken link okay so let's go back okay so we're gonna go ahead and continue scan now setting up a trusted boot okay so it states that the system must restart now to perform a trusted boot so we're gonna click on restart now and see if the system's actually gonna restart this time or if I have to force a restart holy it's actually rebooting this time you know I took about three minutes to actually initiate but nevertheless it's rebooting finally so we'll be back once we get into whatever the next screen is I assume it's gonna be some sort of boot times an or if it's gonna restart in a mode that no relatives of Windows normal mode and just not allow the malware to run we will wait and see there we go we were running another scan here and it's going relatively quick I don't know if this is just the trusted boot scan again or if this is actually the scan itself right here it says trusted boot that it's on right now so I don't know if that means that our boot is trusted right now and then we're doing our preliminary scan that we are originally going to do without using the trust boot feature of this program or if it essentially is just doing an additional scam to ensure that it has removed all traces of the mouse we will have to wait and see it's definitely taking a little bit longer so my guess is actually doing the preliminary scan that was gonna do originally just by hitting the acceptance scan button so when it's done guys we will take a look at the results well this is not good P cloud cleaner dot exe has stopped working apparently we have to close the program so poor Panda alright well let's go ahead and see if we can just do a regular scan and screw the whole boot time scan cuz I don't think that that's working so let's open it back up here and see we can do if we can do a regular scan and get rid of that stupid boot time scan or if it's gonna force me to continue with that crap so far it ain't looking good for paying the cloud cleaner okay so it looks like it's gonna try this again and I'm not gonna try this again I just want to cancel it and I want to go with a regular scan okay now this is canceled well I don't want to restart now why do I have to always restart all right so it's gonna restart again alright everyone so let's try to accept and scan just with the regular settings this time and use that boot time or yeah the bootable scan we're just gonna try to do it this way so it's downloading updates apparently right now that I don't know why it didn't do that earlier but anyways and second of all it's a cloud cleaner scanner delia thing I thought why is it downloading updates but whatever it's downloading updates and now it's actually scanning whoo alright so we're actually getting somewhere this time however yes she did pretty much finish the scan last time it's just the program crapped out on us so let's hope this time we can actually complete the scan without the program and crashing so once the scan is complete hopefully I'll be back with the results page this time alright everyone saw the scan has finished and apparently it's found 28 pieces of malware and potentially unwanted programs and xxx unknown files or suspicious policies let's take a look at some of these here and see what it's found so it looks like I found a cookie some Trojans it looks like different threats so this may actually have a little bit better we do have some potentially unwanted programs right here we will go ahead and remove all those and just some suspicious policies here well I'm pretty sure that they're suspicious unknown autorun elements older than five days so we'll remove these two system cleaning temporary Internet files history cookies hell we'll just dump it all we don't need it so yeah it looks like it did a pretty good job if it actually gonna remove all that stuff let's take a look at the unknown files here and all it just brings you the same spot I see okay so these are all the same it just is different buttons I guess to get you I know that's kind of useless if you ask me plus the shack you bringing to the right section for system cleaning instead of me having to scroll down but anyways okay so we're gonna go ahead we got everything selected here 703 of 703 elements are selected and I understand that now before when I kind of had this on you're a little bit confused of how the different numbers were um I guess I was just me being me so anyways let's go ahead and click on clean here and we're gonna go ahead see how well it can clean the system so it's applying disinfection maybe you could have chosen a little bit better wording there but uh applying disinfection it is when this is all done guys we're gonna hopefully be back and we'll see the system nice and clean you car do you see it's going hard at work definitely removing a lot and the way of the stuff on here yeah so maybe the techies have had a point here and actually the Panda will do a little bit better so I'll let us do its thing it's done well check out the results so apparently it wants me to reboot now which just didn't be understood it doesn't look like it removed a lot in the way of malware a couple icons have disappeared but so far you can see a lot left in the system maybe it's gonna remove it a reboot so we'll give it a chance we're gonna click on a restart now and hopefully the system I reboot fairly quickly and we'll be back and I'm gonna then run a scan with hitman Pro and see what it found on this system so seen a bit all right so hitman Pro is currently scanning however I don't needed to finish the scan to call this test right here after rebooting the system as you can see a lot of them our visually is still left on the desktop adware included so overall it doesn't look like it performed much better maybe a little bit better but overall it's not much better than the Panda free antivirus that we tested earlier which is quite disappointing I really had high hopes for Panda I usually perform very well and pass tests but unfortunately in this one it really just does not do well at removing things I did good at blocking things but just not at removal and the removal tool in general as well just as having an issue here so as you can see there is a lot of malware on this system and we have viruses we have worms we have Trojans there is just a slew of everything on here so a lot of it is services and things as well that are in very serious places that you definitely do not want Malheur to be and most of them are auto run entries as well granted a lot of running currently because other malware's blocking them but to my point these are some parrot very serious pieces of malware that panda should should be able to detect in addition to that we do have Mauer in this the system right now is extremely slow because it's trying to scan and then we got other mail running in the background we got these two pieces of malware right here which are detected by 51 out of 57 vendors from virus total now I tried to open it up but it it's not opening up in addition to that my internet explorer browser is also broken I can no longer get to the Internet using Internet Explorer alone I have to go into the in private browsing in order to use it so somewhere along the line I believe is an add-on that is causing an issue or panda tried to remove an add-on and didn't remove it fully and is getting hung up now and Internet Explorer causing it to just hang it doesn't it'll open up enough obviously I'm doing so much stuff right now I can't really there we go it'll essentially open a tab and this is about as far as it'll get right here it'll just sit here now and do absolutely nothing you have to actually right click and go to in private browsing for it to load so that's quite disappointing right there and because in fact it was working before I had to download all this stuff and I used Internet Explorer to do so so that's really kind of unfortunate the fact that it made the problem worse it didn't make it better it's supposed to make the problem better and it didn't huh so what that said here close I dogs not gonna work what is my bottom line now with Panda Cloud Cleaner well I can't say I'd recommend it as a one of my main tools to clean up an infected PC I mean clearly you can see there is malware here we got some packed malware right here that is unknown but it's definitely a piece of malware that is not legitimate skype dot exe I guarantee you that and then we also have malware which is spawning SVC host processes here in different tasks as well as some councils here so realistically this system is very highly infected still it really didn't even put a dent in the Mauer its overall I cannot recommend using panda I mean I really wouldn't even put it in my tool kit I would use it as an absolute last resort if there's a piece of malware that I just cannot remove I'd say well and I'll just throw paint at it you know see if see if that'll work it's just kind of like your your last trick out of your bag type of thing before you just end up reformatting the hard drive so that's where I died that's where I stand with it as a removal tool panda is just awful it is horrible as you can see the system is very infected cannot recommend it at all in fact I would probably have to recommend staying away from it just from what I'm seeing here now if anyone else wants to kind of retest it and provide me the different result that with legitimate malware and things like that well it'll write a hit but these are the results I've gotten from my tests this is now a second result from a second program provided by panda using the same hour on this system as you can see it's confirmed malware hitman Pro is detecting it as viruses you know we click on it and you can see it's BitDefender and Kaspersky have both duck Tech ding threats and you can see this is actually I believe the same all part of the same threat here yeah there's a different right there that's detected by bitdefender only so definitely there is a lot in the way of Mauer on this system so really expected a lot more from Panda as my bottom line I think that's going to be it guys for this review hope you enjoyed it I hope this kind of clears up a little bit of the Panda free antivirus review in the sense of the removal test most mostly in that area and kind of shows you that it's just that it's all cracked up to be I mean I'm sorry for the the Panda fans out there but it just didn't perform that well so hope you guys enjoyed it hope you enjoy the rest of the reviews we're gonna be getting a should be seeing pretty soon a techie versus user I don't know if this is gonna if I don't know them to get this video uploaded before but we're gonna have a techie versus user and a free or a fake tech support video coming out so stay tuned for that that'll be released pretty soon so see you in the next video
