Heuristic virus+how to find it and remove from your computer



It is not a definite or a confirmed virus. As the word heuristic means

experience-based techniques for problem solving, learning, and discovery that give a solution which is not guaranteed to be optimal. Where the exhaustive search is impractical. It is a malware spyware or a Trojan. It has not been defined in your defender, antivirus software or internet security software. That’s why these software while scanning your computer, find a file behaving in a strange, unusual or malicious manner, they categorise it as heuristic. Such files are treated as harmful and treated by your antivirus as per your antivirus software setting, i.e. your antivirus will quarantine, delete or more.
