i heard AVG and norton took alot of strain.

I heard a new Panda Cloud Antivirus is it gonna put less strain on my system loadout overall?

I don't know of any that make strain on a modern system. But if you are really worried MSE is really lightweight.

MSE caps.

The only antiviruses anyone should be using is Microsoft Security Essentials, and malware byte. Using them together really is the best solution.

Panda Cloud is pretty good.

Thought Panda was only on demand scan... Which is totally useless.
If you actually do have a virus, you should do a fresh install of Windows.
You want an active scanner that scans files as they're created and executed.

Just use MSE.
Or if you want to pay, use ESET NOD32.

That's it.
The rest suck.
Don't bother.
Just to see what happens.
