    Analyzer,

    Dr.Web and NOD32 could be configured that way. That said, one has to bear in mind a) the very strong heuristics from Dr.Web are by default bound to come up with false positives. In case one configures this software the way you want to, you are taking chances harmless and needed executables etc. being deleted, resulting in a system havoc. As for NOD32, strong heuristics can cause the same - but one has the possibility to play around with the heuristical settings; have a look at our screen shots.

    regards.
