Avast Driver Updater - Downloading Infected Driver
« on: October 26, 2017, 06:42:00 PM »
I've got Avast Driver Updater. I did a check and it tried to download/update the Intel Management Interface and avast detected it as a Virusl (Malware).  Can somebody at Avast please let them know they need to scan their own files?

This is uncalled for to put out a product that will attempt to use unverified and un-scanned drivers/programs.



Regards,
Ed

Same here not only that but avast driver updater has stopped my speakers on my laptop working, they were fine till it tried to update the audio driver, and I've tried literally all the restore points, none work.

Update: I contacted support and they initiated a refund. I totally didn't expect that, but thank you Avast.
