    I suggest that ESET can request to enable for its advanced heuristic engine for real time file system protection in AV-C test.What do you think?Thanks.

    Advanced heuristics are already enabled by default for new and changed files AFAIK, so all samples from AV-C should be scanned with Advanced Heuristics.

    But why my ESET only enabled its advanced heuristic for Start Up file check and file execution on removable media only by default?

    Because you're not looking at the settings for newly created and modified files.

    you refer to AV-C Dynamic test?
    Anyway, files have to be created or modified

    An exception could be infiltrations already on the hard drive
    (ie user disable filesystem protection/filter sometimes)

    if someone of these infiltrations gets executed, these can be blocked by enabling advanced heuristics on file execution

    Making the heuristics high may be fatal for ESET on the test as High sensitivity may lead to False Positives,
