Ad asked me to install a driver

hiya all, i just tried to use a driver updater from dtv just now, d/loaded it but my AVG jumped in saying it had malware and dumped it straight away!!! Can anyone tell me if AVG is just overprotective or do ya think it`s ok, ttfn … :face_with_raised_eyebrow: :beers:

You shouldn’t have to download any driver from DTV…that doesn’t make sense, sounds like you got a virus and it’s making you believe you installing things from trusted websites.

a driver updater not a driver … :beers: its the WINZIP one!!!

@johnnieja23 still doesn’t make sense what you saying? Why would DTV ask you to install a driver updater?

Well adverts are there to help out DTV with server costs… but seriously who ever clicks on the ads?

Our website never asks for any “driver updates,” it looks like your PC is compromised. Install proper anti-virus software.

Never install anything if an ad anywhere on the Internet asks you to install something. That’s basic stuff when browsing the Internet.

We don’t control the ads, ad networks do and this is the case on 99,999% of all websites.
