Virus Infection

Hello Everyone, I'm new to the community and have a question regarding virus infections and anti virus software.  I had AVG as my anti-virus and during a scan it found that there were over 40 infections so I purchased secure everywhere and it ran a scan and found no infections whatsoever.  Is there some difference between the two systems that one dectects objects as an infection while the other doesn't? Why such a dicrepancy?  I have to say I'm a little confused.  Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated.

There could be many contributing factors, the main one being that Webroot doesn't use scare tactics by removing regular cookies and browser helpers unless they are in fact malicious.
