Configuring AMSI Scanner task settings via the Application Console
To configure an AMSI scanner task:
In the Application Console tree, expand the Real-Time Computer Protection node.
Select the AMSI scanner child node.
Click the Properties link in the results pane of the node.
The Task settings window opens on the General tab.
In the Action to perform on dangerous scripts section, do one of the following:
To allow execution of probably dangerous scripts, select Allow.
To prohibit execution of probably dangerous scripts, select Block.
In the Heuristic analyzer section, do one of the following:
Clear or select the Use Heuristic Analyzer check box.
If necessary, adjust the level of analysis using the slider.
The heuristic analysis level sets the balance between the thoroughness of searches for threats, the load on the operating system's resources and the time required for scanning.
The following scanning sensitivity levels are available:
Light. Heuristic Analyzer performs fewer instructions within executable files. The probability of threat detection in this mode is somewhat lower. Scanning is faster and less resource-intensive.
Medium. Heuristic Analyzer performs the number of executable file instructions recommended by Kaspersky experts.
This level is selected by default.
Deep. Heuristic Analyzer performs more instructions within executable files. The probability of threat detection in this mode is higher. Scanning uses more system resources, takes more time, and can produce a higher number of false alarms.
The setting is available if the Use heuristic analyzer check box is selected.
In the Trusted Zone section, select or clear the Apply Trusted Zone check box.
