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.

Anti Virus protection (MSE)
Please, I have been using MSE for the past year or so but I'm starting to question it's reliability. My question is, compared to other free AV's how does MSE rate. Let me say that many free AV's come with bundled software that I don't care for. Does anyone have an opinion.
