The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." — Douglas Adams.
"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." — Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

Others more qualified with malware removal will have more to say. But the short version is you are comparing apples to oranges. You are comparing an Anti-Malware tool to an Anti-Virus application. They are two different things and their definition files are looking for different things. There is no one tool that does it all. That is the very reason we always suggest a 'layered' approach to building a security arsenal.

Malware is a "general term" that can cover almost anything from Adware to Virus to Rootkit to Fake / Rogue Infections to Trojans and the many variants between.
I thought that Viruses and Malware came hand in hand. Aren't Viruses always Malware, but Malware isn't always a virus?

When I speak of the Nation, I mean the Great Commonwealth of Virginia.
