Options

In the Options section, you can select the methods used during a scan of the system. The following options are available:

Heuristics – Heuristics use an algorithm that analyzes the (malicious) activity of programs. The main advantage of heuristic detection is the ability to detect new malicious software which did not previously exist.

Advanced heuristics – Advanced heuristics is comprised of a unique heuristic algorithm, developed by ESET, optimized for detecting computer worms and trojan horses written in high-level programming languages. The program's detection ability is significantly higher as a result of advanced heuristics.
