    I've noticed most AVs work better if a few changes to their settings are made. On my website I've decided to mention some tweaks.

    I've got some for Avast! such as enabling PUP detection, and setting heuristics to high, since it seems to improve detection without a big change in false positives. I also put to enable heuristics in Roboscan.

    I also need some for Panda Cloud, Avira, and AVG. Could someone tell me some tweaks for those? Thanks.

    Maximum protection -> tick all check boxes that relate to higher detection.

    Better performance -> tick all the check boxes that relate to higher performance.

    Other then that, its all personal choice. :shifty:

    Generally speaking, most AVs want to know on scan if recommended actions should be taken, or if the user should decide. This seems to always be a dilemma, i.e. who is being served, the inexperienced user, or the experienced user? Taking recommended action automatically can lead to unfortunate results if false positives are encountered, and conversely, if a user lacking knowledge is expected to make decisions, bad things can also happen. On my computers, I always opt for being notified only, prompted for an action.
