Its just that 102 seems like a very low sample to me, especially compared to the rest of the tests. Apparently those remaining 272.799 were detected 100% of the time. I don't see myself removing MSE because of this, at least until I see some more reliable testing.
I use a combination of four separate programs, Comodo Firewall and MSE (24/7), Spybot S&D regularly and MBAM monthly (on a schedule). So far I have yet to run into any sort of complications. Also, proper common sense when using a computer will help you more than the best AV suite.
1 - Don't run unknown .exe files
2 - If the same program is available on a more reliable site, use that one instead
3 - If its too good to be true its a virus4 - You are NOT the 1.000.000 viewer, the prize is a LIE (just use adblock+)5 - NO, you can't lose that much weight / enlarge your d*** / get a free iPad
6 - If you really must run it then sandbox it
7 - If a program that isn't supposed (or you don't trust) to have access to your internet connection / user settings / etc asks for it, deny and uninstall
8 - Never select default installation, always select Advanced Installation so you don't get flooded with free toolbars / crapware
9 - Learn how to google efficiently (most of the time its how you come to shady sites, by googling the wrong terms) and by the results on the search page, at a glance, tell if that site is of interest or if it just has a list of random tags with your search terms on it
10 - Before you click a link, see where it leads to by checking the bottom of the page, be wary of random links or comments even on reputable sites
This should be common knowledge to everyone near a computer (except maybe the sandbox part, but hopefully we're getting there).
