I'd like to see some real action from heuristics. I hope they won't be as dormant as those in some other products where there is a checkbox for "Heuristics", but it doesn't really do much or at least i haven't seen any detection by it.
On the other side there are heuristics like those in NOD32 (at least in the past) spawn countless number of proper heuristic detections.
And Behavior SHield of course, but that is only available for dynamic tests...

Haha yay!!!
Avast did a great job but I think I can't use it anymore unless I format my pc again but I don't have the cd T_T!
I think I've cleaned an important file in my pc and I could enter my pc anymore so I just format it with ubuntu cd and now I'm using that operating system!

It is really different with windows no tools for accelerating my pc really mean!!
But this is better than nothing^^

You could try Foxit reader, just don't install the ebay shortcut/toolbar during the install. The free version has some limitations, but for just reading of pdf's, it is fine.
It is also a lot smaller and less bloated than the Adobe offering.
