    Either that, or the Avast engine ? not sure.
    I was invited to the alpha, but could not install it, its in beta now and i still can't install it.
    So I skipped this one ;)

    Yes, if you consider Active Virus Control is a Bitdefender feature.
    adaware antivirus features

    @_CyberGhosT_ @RejZoR Do avast still allow other security apps to use their engine? (Of course excluding AVG).

    It's a good thing that they use Bitdefender engine. At least Adaware will have a more or less good detection rate, and being able to compete in the antivirus/anti-malware industry.

    But did you download the installer from the new version? Because it's strange, it was for him to upgrade to the new version, which is 12
