Hi, Aura & quietman7!
Thank you both for the prompt and insightful replies!
As it happens, I was actually not experiencing any symptoms of malware infection whatsoever, and running all the AM-tools in my signature of course takes a significant amount of time, however I only do this seldomly in order to find out what might have slipped through my real-time security setup.
I suppose the term 'aggressive methods' refers to heuristics, which causes a higher amount of FPs, nonetheless nothing noticeably more than other similar tools.
Moreover, I already carefully review every AM-tools' scan results page before removing anything, and if need be I also upload suspicious files to VirusTotal and others. Otherwise, I keep everything that I am unsure of (mostly FPs).
