As a main AV ok, but what you were to use it as a second opinion, scanner wouldn't malwarebytes be a better buy because it's a 1 time payment for life?

I really like the entire concept of this Antivirus. Unfortunately, it has too many false positives and misses many infected files. I hope it gets better by November because that is when my NOD32 subscription expires. If so, I will surely use it.
