MSE + Avast + Spywareblaster + MBAM
2009 Toshiba, A135, 1.73 Ghz, 2G RAM.
MSE sees it before Avast and little window in lower right corner says threat deleted.
If I turn off MSE, the free Avast sees it then window in right lower corner says threat detected and deleted.
Ran a complete free Malwarebytes and free AVast scan and no infections found.
I did not have Spywareblaster installed when I did test.
I'm guessing that EICAR was difficult to design and that is why we don't see any other test viruses out there. Maybe there are others and I haven't heard about them yet.
