Asyn should I uninstall MBAB resident as you say it's ancient??

1. never said it's ancient - it's still a good sw.
2. if u use the resident mbam, u already paid 4 it, i guess, so why would u like 2 drop it?
3. you can run mbam and! a² if u like. (as on demand scanners, as stated in earlier post)

i, 4 me, dropped mbam free, which had no further usage 4 me. (freed some mem and diskspace)

if u ask, if i would do so... yes! :)
but i'm quite strict to this, thats why i'm running a fast & well protected system, imo. please consider 4 urself, that i have a quite huge knowledge of my system and sw running on it. doesn't mean everything i do here, is also good 4 you. there are much more sec-related things than av/am/fw/sb etc.

Yes, A-Squared has too many false positives.

Well A squared picked up a High Risk, Win32 Trojan in Comodo CLT zipped> Coats.DLL, could be false positive but neither Avast nor MBAM detected it?? :-\

Why don't you upload the file to Virus Total and see if it is a false positive

False Positives are not a good character of an AV
