Default Why is my anti virus scan slower then my adawear SE program?

Why does my AVG Free virus scan take about 5x longer to complete a full system scan then my Ad-awear SE anti-adwear / spywear program?

Also I noticed that with Ad aware once it reaches file number 4,000 it skips to like 60,000. Where with the anti-virus program it does not skip the files. So what is adawear doing? Does it truly scan all the files between 4,000 and 60,000 that fast or does it skip them?

I have both programs set to a full system scan. Not some smart scan or limited scan.
