    ""The anti virus has been stopped""

    August 28, 2010  |   By srdep1

    Pros

    Seemed like a simple light weight program. Very light on resources but a great idea.

    Cons

    "antivirus has been stopped"

    Summary

    After running it for a week, keeps showing a red X and reads "Antivirus has been stopped". I click on start antvirus and it never starts. I uninstalled, restarted and reinstalled. From the very first it again tells me antivirus has been stopped. Can't find an answer on Panda blogs. so I can't use it if it won't stay on. Any answers out there?

    srdep1 Hi !! Go to www.cloudantivirus.com/forum and click on tools (bottom of page). Select "download uninstaller" and use this to completely uninstall all traces of the program. Then reboot and reinstall Panda Cloud Antivirus. Then before using, run an "optimized scan" so the program can recognize all your computer's regularly used drivers. This should stop your problem with "cloud antivirus has been stopped!!

    Same day, same problem. Open Panda, has red circle with X and says The antivirus has been stopped. There is a button that says "start antivirus". Click it and it acts as if it is starting, but never does. But if I put the cursor over the Panda Icon, it reads, "There are no security problems" I have poured over the Panda blogs and tried everything suggested without success. There is no way to contact anyone at Panda, only the never ending blogs. So I guess I will dump it. Anybody here can help??? Windows Vista Business w/Sp 1. I have MSE on now because I do not know if Panda is working.
