The Amiga virus checkers was 20 years ago and a different ball game. The majority was bootblock virii that caused havoc on the disk files, there wasn't such a thing as root kits or a virus that tunnelled in-to the kernel functions. To me, if it's detecting ANYTHING suspicious it's doing it's job.
It doesn't delete any files, it never has done, it quarantines them. If a file is suspicious you have the chance to check it out before adding it to the exclusion list and moving it back out of quarantine. Why is that so hard to understand?
I would be worried in this day and age if a virus checker didn't pick up on suspicious files and just stayed silent all the time, it obviously wouldn't be doing it's job.
