Thanks to CNET, they shared the following offer well worth checking out. You may have already heard of the Education friendly CloudAntivirus from Panda, but now they are offering their Pro version at no cost! (Read my write-up on it). For now, here’s a brief overview:

Panda Cloud Antivirus is not only free for home users. It’s also free for education. In order to install it into multiple PCs, simply create an account and install into all PCs using the same account.

While this Pro offer certainly doesn’t appear to be on the table for schools, it is out there for those of you who DO use it on personal machines, etc.

Note that this offer expires on Monday, November 1, 2010 at 5:00 PM Pacific time (whatever that is).

Thanks to the C-NET folks for sharing the info!!
