I've had nothing but problems with Symantec (makers of Norton) products with the exception of Ghost. Even getting rid of them was problematic.
My experience with MSE was similar. I had a couple of nasties slip through when I first set it up on my new notebook back in June which SAS picked up. Since then, MBAM hasn't picked up anything and SAS only finds the occasional supercookie, mostly from IMdb. I now avoid that site; the rare times I do use it, I immediately do a 1 day scan with SAS to clear out their *&^%$#@! cookie (I have cookies essentially turned off in my browser but IMdb parks their's in a different place instead of the cookie folder).
