McAfee and heuristics ?

Certain antivirus vendors allow users to set 'heuristics' at a certain level, or it is at least mentioned somewhere.

Two questions (home products):

Does McAfee (Virusscan Plus) use heuristics ?

Is it possible to change the setting for heuristics ?

Yes McAfee has used heuristics for years and no it can't be adjusted, at least on the home products. I have no idea regarding the latter on Enterprise products.

Just FYI.

Yes, the corporate Enterprise VirusScan products have he options to enable or disable heurisics options for both the "On Access" (background) scanner and the "On Demand" scan..

Hope this helps.
