Hello,

first of all let me sincerely apologize for all troubles associated with usage of our product.
This seems like an issue inside a product rather than a desired state.

In order to be able to help you I would like to ask you to send the log files so we can investigate where the problem is.

You can simply send them by executing our log collector utility from this path C:\Program Files\AVAST Software\Driver Updater\dulogcollector.exe and once the logs are collected they will be automatically sent to our server.
Once it is done, please let me know which email address you have used there so we can join the logs with your report here.

Thank you.

i have seen the same thing where some drivers had the same version-numbers but different dates and so the driver updater program showed driver-updates as being available, due to the difference in the dates (despite both the old and new drivers having the same version-numbers).

i don't think that it is a big problem.

i went ahead and installed the driver-updates that the driver updater program showed as being available.
