Do results vary between the free and paid versions?

Just changing the subject line to be more descriptive, since "Food for thought" just makes me hungry!

Hello ,
I had purchased Avast, and a few weeks later took my laptop into "Mothers,"
(a well respected computer shop in Victoria, BC.) for another issue. As the technician worked on my machine he proceeded to unload Avast saying that Microsoft Essentials performed the same tasks, and when there are multiple protection programs at work they tend to fight with each other.
Cheers Kevin.

Well I sent a message to the other list, which has absolutely gone mum on the subject I put out there.
As many of us are on both list, I'm just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on the possibility that versions of JAWS can be adversely affected by virus protection that might think of aspects of JAWS as being malware.
I believe this has happened to me in the past, thus messing up some of my JAWS versions and possibly passing on any corruption caused by virus protection deleting any files considered suspect.
Yes, no, maybe so?
