Is there something wrong with this software? There are no reviews but a 50/50 positive feedback score. I was wondering why it’s so low.Aug 6, 2018 at 3:02 am #11814873

I am using BitDefender Total Internet Security and after installing “Smart Driver Manager” my Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit PC went into “Threat Mode”. They may be false positives, but I not taking any chances. Shame on SoftwareOnSale for offering this rubbish.Aug 6, 2018 at 3:48 am #11815344

Otherwise, it can make a nice driver backup as zip files for later reuse.
But the list of suggested drivers hardly matches my hardware — Lenovo drivers for an HP?

Surprenant, logiciel rapide et efficace.
J’ai apprécié la clarté de l’interface et sa traduction en français.Aug 6, 2018 at 4:52 am #11815923

Smart Driver Manager contains MALWARE but it seems like Potential Unwanted Program. Beware to install it! Even its website also contains malware too. I was using IObit Driver Booster and nothing happen at all.Aug 6, 2018 at 5:15 am #11816130

Bitdefender detected a virus contained with the software and refused to enable it and recommended that my system be disinfected. I have had to delete it from my system.Aug 6, 2018 at 6:54 am #11816911
the program offered to download the driver Elan Touchpad Driver
instead of ALPS Touchpad DriverAug 6, 2018 at 8:10 am #11817641
this is normal, devices cand have different drivers because of different reseller, probable the elan touchpad driver is for the same device as alps touchpad driver.
anyway i dont advice to use too much this kind of software, this kind of software is very good to find driver for devices your system dont recognize or you cannot find yourself the driver.Aug 6, 2018 at 11:38 am #11819506
I installed it on my Win 10 Pro and it found some old drivers, so no complaint.
Windows Defender did not flag it as malware.
But I see no place where it says it will expire in a year?!Aug 6, 2018 at 6:12 pm #11821118
Bitdefender Total Security totally wiped this software even after I made exceptions.
I even tried to disable all protection, but Bitdefender goes on wiping this software.
WHat a pity, this software seems nice but i cannot uninstall Bitdefender.
Best regards.Aug 6, 2018 at 8:13 pm #11821562
Heimdal Pro Security says this program is riskware…
