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.

  1. 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

  2. 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.
