Is there a way to turn off apex and just use universal scan for detection with unknown files ,seems now apex needs to be turned on to get universal to work ,friggin confusing.
1. Start on the home page,then 2. click on App settings{at the bottom of page},then 3. click Scan settings{left middle second panel down}then in the middle 4. shut off Register as Antivirus. This allows your choice of Av to work with SecureAplus,not sure if this answers your statement but hope it helps

I uninstalled it ,apex was running in the background and seems it is part of Universal antivirus, even if it is not registered it still runs for any warnings to come up under UA. I was using Norton with it.
I understand ,one thing that "worried me" about the Apex engine was when I saw all the Avs that caught or flagged the Robin Hood ransomware Apex was one of very few that said it was clean{maybe changed since Baltimore attack} anyway I also use it with Symantic and still like it gl

used google translate to covert to english
  • tested both on windows 7
  • secureaplus was more stable
  • secureaplus has more protections than voodooshield
  • secureaplus lockdown mode provided better protection in tests
  • voodooshield was less reliable against unknown malware

This depends on a variety of factors:
1. If you have an AV on your system already - VS
2. No AV - SAP
3. Personal preference
4. What system setup you are looking for
5. How proactive you want your protection to be
6. System performance on Memory & CPU
7. Start up time
8. Tweakability of settings

Many, many others. It's just down to what you really want for your system and what's best for you.
