Panda's cloud-based nature – not downloading definitions each day – leads me to forget that it's running, until something causes a flag to be raised (which doesn't happen often, because I'm careful with what I do online).

I think it's a good idea to download some safe "viruses" (files designer to appear to be viruses) to check whether one's AV catches them. Panda caught all the EICAR variant files, as well as the one I created in Notepad from the raw text.

I haven't given much thought to alternatives; I'll do that if and when Panda goes bad.
