A question about detect virus
« on: October 28, 2005, 05:12:54 AM »
  Does anyone know that whether avast! has a function of "heuristic analyse" to detect unkown viruses?So far as I know, many other antivirus produts have. ???

Hello Chineseboy! Welcome!
This was discussed a lot of times in the past.
It doesn't seem that avast! will add an heuristic module for the standard shield protection. It does only have it for mail scanning.
Otherwise, there are NetShield and specially WebShield that other antivirus does not offer  8)
