Are ESET's Nod32 results accurate?

Episode 968 (1:18:28)

Mike from Winnetka, CA

Mike scanned his friend's computers using his Eset Nod32 software and it brings up results that their free AVS software doesn't see. Mike's friends are suspecting that ESET is creating threats. Is there a way to prove that these results are accurate?

Leo says to get a second opinion with an online scan. Trend Micro has a great online scanner that can verify it. If they're using something other than Microsoft's Security Essentials, tell them to replace it. MSE is free as well.
