Almost sure then that they still use the Bitdefender engine, anytime I'll ask in the Lavasoft forum

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

And it asks to install this one:
