    It's also probably very quiet. Set it and forget it.

    Yea, that's why they tell you to use another AV besides their own (a definite NO-NO, as we all know)

    Quote from their site:
    Our tests showed that even some well-known anti-virus software with automatic updates still miss in finding and healing some new viruses. That it's why we recommend you to use at least two antivirus programs on your computer.:p

    I'm sure you could. Even Notepad has a better detection rate than Abacre.:cautious:

    Maybe it does not operate with definitions even? Only with some heuristic or behavioral detection methods? Like you can add Panda True Prevent to other AV's if I'm correct. Could be that it's not their goal to offer fully featured AV.
