    Downloaded the cloud av. But have not tested it. Just another tool in the toolbox.

    IMHO it's quite lightweight. Detection wise, well it's rat race in the AV field so running a 100 samples for comparison doesn't really prove much (but of course I'll expect a 95% detection at least!) lol.

    Thanks for the update.
    How much ever they improve, if they do not provide an improvised mechanism for quarantining and whitelisting the once-unquarantined files, it won't be convenient for normal users.
    It's protection was average when I tested it twice against samples (two months ago). Will like to retry it sometime soon.
