    why isn't it possible? let say dr.web wants to upgrade to a better hive detection, and they want suggestion's! what is wrong with it? they just need some suggestions to improve to a better hive detection and then upgrade!
    So all suggestion's on how to upgrade to a better Hive detection would be nice ? someone please?

    May i ask why you think users around here would be able to suggest how to improve on something as difficult to improve on as heuristics? It's not done overnight and there is not a lot of forumsurfers (if any) that will be able to help those programmers already working on this at BitDefender/DrWeb, since they have no insight (for obvious reasons) into how BitDefender/DrWeb has programmed their versions of heuristics.:)

    Neither I can comprehend how users could contribute to improving heuristic detection capabilities... unless they are highly skilled programmers having dealt with viruses for a considerable amount of time and employed by a particular AV company so that they are trustworthy to know ins and outs about a particular AV.

    Also HiVE Technology is a trademark name for BitDefender's heuristics.
    Other AV's have their own names but in general you should use just "heuristics" when talking about proactive detection in general.
    Though several different products use different special names for their heuristic technology. Like BitDefender has HiVE, Norman has Sandbox, NOD32 has Advanced Heuristics (ThreatSense),VBA32 has MalwareScope/Paranoid Heuristics etc etc...
