Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

I was generally curious of what the difference is between the two and why Standard Quality Mode (Normal Bitrate) is preferable over Approximate Bitrate encoding even though AB achieves a higher bitrate.

The reasoning i've usually  heard is that it is a better quality than CBR.

Oggvorbis works best in Quality mode. In simple terms, Average bitrate is next best followed by CBR which is not true CBR but highly constrained ABR.
