Just saw a video on blog.cloudantivirus.com which has a video which was showing a new concept of how cloud anti virus works. It works on a new concept that seem to be the best concept of being the best antivirus

This anti virus works like this when you use the Cloud Anti virus software then you are connected to the "Panda cloud" where you and other panda cloud anti virus users are connected. And when you are browsing sites and doing things online, your queries and site clicks are checked by the Panda Cloud.

And when anyone of the user of the anti virus makes contact with any virus that can harm you then the Cloud Anti virus will collect the information about the virus and adds it to the ever expanding virus database. Then all the users who are using the anti virus are saved from the virus as the antivirus blocks the virus from all the users of the antivirus. And the update is done in 6 minutes. Unlike other anti virus software that takes month to update their anti virus database.

And the software is lite and wont be a memory hog on your computer as the work is done in the cloud and your other programs will run faster. You just have to set up and forget about the software as the database in the Panda cloud is growing you will won't need to update your anti virus and you will be protected from the latest threats as soon as the community finds it.

And the best part about the software is that it is totally free which lets the community to grow big and prevention gets really real time cuz as soon as the cloud detects a new virus the whole community using the anti virus gets protection as soon as 6 minutes.

Whats a Conficker Worm ?

Digg it | Stumble it | Save to Del.ico.us |
Conficker Worm is a worm that locks users out of system directories, and blocks your access to security websites and applications, such as Windows Automatic Update Service, Windows Security Center Service, Windows Defender Service (WinDefend), Windows Vista TCP/IP auto-tuning, and more. To further hide its presence in your computer, Conficker Worm deletes any System Restore points you’ve created.

What’s the point?

Conficker Worm wants to remain undetected, as Conficker Worm downloads more malware onto your computer, contacts ISPs to get directions from a hacker, and places your computer in the Conficker Worm botnet.

Unless your PC becoming part of a hacker’s network sounds like fun, let me show you how to get rid of Conficker Worm for free.

You can use my Conficker Worm removal instructions below, or also try Microsoft’s Conficker worm remover software.

How Did You Get Conficker Worm?

Wondering how Conficker Worm ended up on your PC? If you’re infected with Conficker Worm or other badware, perhaps you were using…

* Freeware or shareware: Did you download and install shareware or freeware? These low-cost or free software applications may come bundled with spyware, adware, or programs like Conficker Worm. Sometimes adware is attached to the free software to “pay” developers for the cost of creating the software, and more often spyware is secretly attached to free software to harm your computer and steal your personal and financial information.
* Peer-to-peer software: Do you use a peer-to-peer (P2P) program or other application with a shared network? When you use these applications, you put your system at risk for unknowingly downloading an infected file, including applications like Conficker Worm.
* Questionable websites: Did you visit a website that’s of questionable nature? When you visit malicious sites that are fishy and phishy, badware may be automatically downloaded and installed onto your computer, sometimes including applications like Conficker Worm. I recommend you use Firefox web browser, if you don’t already.

Understanding Conficker Worm

If you’re infected with Conficker Worm, you should know what you’re fighting. I’ll explain some definitions related to Conficker Worm.
Conficker Worm May Be a Worm

Worms are virus-like badware with destructive codes. Worms are able to mutate, or replace their own code by automatically, which makes worms very dangerous, difficult to find, and hard to delete. Similar to viruses, worms can spread to the other computers by secretly and automatically emailing themselves to other Internet users in your address book. The main difference between worms and viruses is that a worm wil replace your computer files rather than simply inserting their code into your files.
