when you do a scan, as MBAM touches files, Trend finds virii
The same is true with Avira.
Mbam will stir the pot, so to speak.
I used Avira for a long time with no problems,
except for a few false positives.
I've now switched to Nod32 and very pleased with it.
If you hide a dormant virus, sure most will miss it until it tries to act.
Detection reliability would be the scores I'm interested in.
For me Nod is lighter then Avira, uses less resources for scans as well.
I don't know what numbers are being looked at.....with everyday use.
I look at, can I use my computer while a scan is running as if it's not.
Nod has that ability, dropping it's load down if the computer is being used.
