They have two different purposes. avast is an anti-virus while SAS is an anti-malware scanner so its not a matter of either or. If you are already using MBAM, then you can use SAS (the free version) as a stand-alone scanner for second opinion scanning.
I'm trying to determine if I really need to go with avast or back to SAS..

What does this notification mean?
This notification means quite simply, that an IP address has been blocked. It does NOT necessarily mean you are infected, it simply means a program on your computer (e.g. your browser, IM program, P2P program etc), tried accessing a malicious IP address...

Well, why replace MSE with Avast.. I have no idea..
Avast seems to hog my CPU or slow it down a tad during internet gaming (yes I'm 61 and game online TF2) so I also like to be protected (Malwarebytes started to block lots of IPs related to game servers in China and I have no idea why) while online.
So I will remove Avast tonight and put MSE back and SAS. They all worked ok.. But I thought more or less that Avast or Kaspersky? was a bit better...
But just point be daddaway and I will do whats suggested.
