    I noticed while looking at another issue that the Advanced Heuristics is turned off on the real time scanner (Real-Time File System Protection -> ThreatSense Engine Parameters Setup -> Options). It looks like this is the default setting according to the ERA console.

    Does anyone run their clients with the Advanced Heuristics enabled on the Real-Time scanner?

    Hello rockshox,

    This is set by default for performance reasons. Others on the forums with this setting changed may be able to give you personal feedback.

    Thank you,
    Richard

    Its somewhat redundant considering the default "Advanced heuristics on file execution" setting. The performance hit is noticable, so I would recommend against it.
