Avast self-defense blocking iqvw64e.sys
« on: January 30, 2022, 02:49:13 PM »
Hello,

My avast self-defense is blocking an Intel storage driver iqvw64e.sys

Why would that happen? It has no virus.

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!
