I know this is an old message, but I was curious what the performance impact of real-time advance heuristics is? What is it doing in comparison to the normal heuristics that causes the impact? I’m new to ESET and their language on this is pretty vague on their website.
Enabling advanced heuristics on file access may have impact on system performance as code emulation is a time and resource consuming process. Therefore, advanced heuristics is only used for newly created and modified files as well as for file that are executed. Files whitelisted by ESET will not be scanned again if you have Smart optimization and LiveGrid enabled.
