What to Do If Avast / Malwarebytes Has Flagged Driver Talent



If your anti-virus like Avast or Malwarebytes has flagged Driver Talent as a concern, please rest assured that Driver Talent is virus free and does not contain any malware. Occasionally, antivirus programs may flag a program incorrectly, which is known as a false positive. Here are some suggested solutions to help prevent that from happening, as well as what you can do if it occurs.

Update Your Anti-Virus Software

Sometimes all that you need to do is just make sure that you have the most recent version of your anti-virus program. It’s possible that they have already patched the problem. If this doesn’t work, then let’s move on to the next possibility.

Flag the Report as a False Positive

If updating the anti-virus software didn’t work, then you’ll need to flag the warning as a False Positive. To ensure that the Driver Talent program is able to run correctly, you will need to set it as a permitted program for any anti-virus or anti-malware application.

  • I’m getting lots blockings of drivethelife stuff apparently infected with win32:kolab-EY [Trj]

    This is with avast. Is this likely to be accurate or a false positive? Never happened before

  • Uh huh. False positive. If this were true why don’t you contact Avast and have them ‘remove’ it. Maybe your program is NOT virus free because I just attempted to launch it and it has come up with a different infection this time, a virus, hence it’s now sitting in my quarantine bin and has joined my “Don’t Download List”. Cheers

    • For the issues you mentioned, we have already solved it with Avast, but they can not be whitelisted from their server if we do not change our software digital signature.

  • Avast flags install with: idp.generic
    Avast flags launch says: Win32:Malware-gen
