False positives are common with many anti-malware applications. I agree with 12m8k that the two choices stated are not optimal. Especially when there
are a host of free alternatives that are, IMO, much better.
rates #1 on most tech blogs.
also ranks high on most tech sites reviews - and has a pretty strong customer loyalty.
Microsoft Security Essentials
is another with strong support and reviews.
For checking to make sure your system is clean, before installing any of the above ( an important step - as most of these will not detect any malware
that is already on a system ):
I'd only use Combofix if you're tech literate though. It will remove all Malware - that can, and sometimes does include files that are necessary for
a computer or OS to operate.
Other problems, such as registry clean-up, etc? I've actually grown quite fond of a free application called Glary
Quite a few useful apps all thrown into one free package.
