Using heuristic analysis

During File Anti-Virus operation, signature analysis is always used: Kaspersky Internet Security compares the object found with the database records.

To improve protection efficiency, you can use the heuristic analysis (i.e., analysis of activity that an object performs in the system). This analysis allows detecting new malicious objects which are not yet described in the databases.

To enable the heuristic analysis:

  1. Open the application settings window.
  2. In the left part of the window, in the Protection Center section, select the File Anti-Virus component.
  3. Click the Settings button in the Security level section in the right part of the window.
  4. In the window that opens, on the Performance tab, in the Scan methods section, check the Internet Security mark fs Using heuristic analysis Heuristic analysis box and specify the detail level for the scan.
