Avast driver update wont download
« on: May 09, 2019, 08:23:07 AM »
I got this message when trying to download the setup file for driver update:

 
This website has been reported as unsafe
Hosted by drup.d.avcdn.net

We recommend that you do not continue to this website. It has been reported to Microsoft for containing threats to your computer that might reveal personal or financial information.
 
When I bypassed that message my router does the same thing and denies me access. What gives? does Avast use unsafe hosting sites?

Marz.

Hi Marz, try: https://install.avcdn.net/drup/avastdriverupdater.exe

Still get the message" avastdriverupdater.exe is unsafe to download and was blocked by Windows Defender Smart Screen".
When you pay for software you shouldn't have to jump through hoops to get it!
