I'd say it depends on your ability to practice Safe Hex.  <g>

I run the two "above mentioned programs" [1] maybe twice a month and
they never find anything. I know others who run them daily and they
*always* find bad stuff.

If one *needs* them, one is doing something wrong.

[1] It would be nice if you wrote your query in the body of the message,
as well as picking a good subject line.

Using the 'Ounce of Prevention' concept and the fact that they're free,

For ther same reason I include four different AV vendor scanners in the Multi AV
Scanning
Tool.

One may catch what another may miss.
