Heuristics?
« on: August 07, 2004, 12:56:08 AM »
Hi,

Does avast! Home Edition or the Pro Edition have heuristics on-access scan?

And in on-demand scan?

Thanks

Basically, heuristics are the same into Home and Pro Edition.
Generally speaking (depends on what you consider 'heuristics'), there is not an on-access heuristic...
Heuristics are only present into on-demand scanning of emails...  ;)

on-access: don't have heuristics
on-demand: have heuristics when scanning email
on-access email scan: ?
