Avast sees new driver as malware
« on: October 07, 2018, 01:36:58 AM »
Trying to install new driver: Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160

Old version: 18.33.11.2
Release date: 10/30/2017

New version: 18.33.12.2
Release date: 1/22/2018

When I click "Download" or "Update Selected Drivers", Avast Internet Security puts the file into the Virus Chest. I've tried restoring it and adding it as an exception, but the result is the same.
