Avast Driver Updater: Do not dare to update drivers
« on: February 26, 2020, 02:29:10 PM »
I've installed a demo of the product and are not sure if I can let the product update my drivers on my laptop. The product suggest to install drivers that are of a newer date but the version-number of the driver is lower. I've tried to sent a message to avast but haven't got an answer. I do not want to install the suggested drivers because I can't see the information of the new drivers: 1) who delivers it(company), 2) the new # is lower: is that not worrying? I will unload the product if I do not get an answer. Best regards

Hi,

could you please send a screenshot from the product you are talking about as I am bit confused by the fact that there isn't any product called Avast cleanup driver.
I guess you meant Avast Driver Updater however a screenshot would confirm the suggestion.

To the versions of the drivers itself, it could happen that a suggested driver is from a different vendor than your current driver and then the version you are going to update to might be even lower or totally different from the one you have currently installed.

If you send a screenshot I will be able to tell you more about the product and situation you've encountered there.

Thank you.

You did receive an answer from Stellerman who is an Avast employee but you never replied to his request
so that you could revive the help you requested.
