I just installed KIS 7 and wanted to know if the default settings are the best? I was surprised to see that heuristics scans are turned off by default for all scans except rootkit. Sorry if this has already been discussed...I did not find anything in a search.

Thanks.

I would stay with default settings until I gained experiance, knowledge and/or a specific need to change them. Heuristics are high by default in web AV and off in file AV. I have had a nice, happy KIS experiance by staying with reccomended defaults.

For the most part, I used KIS 6 with the defaults and I have left KIS 7 settings alone also. In my install, heuristics are off in both web AV and file AV. I thought this was maybe because it is still technically a beta version.

I would turn web hueristics back on (detail). What version are you using? 119 is/was a Technical Release. 124 was officialy released in parts of Europe recently; 125 contains an update. Preform an upgrade as needed.

For me heuristics are on "Detail" and that is the default setting in the web-av, the rest is actually also turned to detail in both file & startup scan..... smile.gif

That's strange, my default settings are different in both KIS 7.0.0.123 and ...125 - heuristics in "file av" is "off" and in start up scan is "shallow", only in "web av" and "mail av" is on "detail".

ok, it seems I misunderstood Don's post, I thought that his default settings are on "detail" in "file av" and "start up scan".

My install shows the "Use Heuristic Analyzer" box unchecked for Web, File & Mail. I will change it per your recommendation. Thanks.
