So What's EEK ? (I hate abbreviation.)

Thanks. :) Just as with Malwarebytes, it found nothing. :)
NP Bob, same here. That confirms that Avast is doing a great job (out of the box). :) 8)

My reason for not depending on that second opinion and only running it very infrequently.
The good thing about EEK is that it's a portable program and uses no resources unless you actually run it.

Yes, and that's exactly why I use/recommend it, but we're getting OT here...

OK, tbh, I'm not overly impressed. Slow scanning and still quite heavy on resources - I like the UI, though.
Personally, I'll stick with EEK as second opinion scanner - it doesn't need/use any resources at all (until run).

PS: Just to be fair, as this is an early beta, I'll probably give the final version another try (once released).

Thanks Asyn
Well all things being equal I guess you are right.
For me, I have plenty of resource with Ram and CPU that I don't notice any lag or delay or heaviness on the Machine running Mbam
