    It has been like that for quite a long time . Web and email heuristics are more sensitive than on-demand scanner ones .

    Actually they are the exact same, just that most advanced heuristics is disabled by default in the context menu on demand scan. Something I mentioned to Marcos because the settings of the context menu on demand scan should not differ from the full on-demand ones. Obviously they didn't change it.

    Still no alert in on-demand scan with the highest setting(all options are checked) .
    HiTech_boy is right.
    Heuristics in web scanner are more sensitive.

    That is not true. Here are the default settings for the Context menu on-demand scan for v3 .

    As you can see , AH are enabled . Actually Advanced heuristics are enabled by default on all modules and profiles except for file access on the Real-time file system protection.

    The web access and email protection use most sensitive heuristics. If you know a file you're downloading is 100% benign, you can disable the web access protection for a while until you download it. Alternatively you can disable potentially unwanted applications in the web access protection setup, but that's not recommended to do.

    Thx for your suggestion,Marcos.
    That would be better if offers a option for this extra heuristics.
