    For some reason, when you go to enable Advanced heuristics on File Execution, it wont stay enabled.

    Steps to reproduce

    1) Go into advanced setup
    2) Browse Computer -> Antivirus and antispyware -> Real time file system protection -> Advanced setup
    3) Enable option Advanced heuristics on file execution
    4) Press OK

    Revisit the advanced setup and notice that the checkmark is now missing on Advanced heuristics on file execution.

    Reproducible always for me.

    Heuristics: detection directly in memory not added yet in RC

    Frequent memory monitoring could help the startup scanner when catching active infiltrations.

    This was added several months ago to all versions from v3 onwards.

    I have tested this and found it to be the same on my system. perhaps it's just a ui bug? If not, then the protection is weakened somewhat...

    That setting is disabled by default.

    It may well be, but when switched on I would expect it to remain switched on.

    Agreed, but we still need to raise issues and hope they are fixed before the final release do we not?

    Exactly. This is why this forum is here, to report on issues that are discovered during on the Beta/RC process so ESET can make a better product. We, as users, have to be aware that this is an extremely limited supported item and there are known issues which they have documented. Unknown issues should be raised so that they can be filed in their bug tracking system.
