New Member's tech I.Q. fails to register using any reasonable scale of measurement; therefore, the KISS principle would be appreciated since the final S in KISS applies to me. Hey, I'm 71, I need my GPS to get home when I'm in the driveway. I also 95% of the acronyms used I have to Google.
Here's my story.
I downloaded Driver Update; when it was time for my Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to run it found 439 PUP.Files that it indicated were harmful to my computer; like any uninformed, fearful user of modern technology who's not going to argue with the doctor, I allowed for their removal, actually they became quarantined. I'm now out $29.00 and back to zero due to not having a Driver Update software program.
Are the PUP.Files found in my Driver Update something that my MBAM software should have removed or do you think it was more likely to be a False Positive; a term that I just recently picked up reading through the forums? Driver Update is an approved third party provider of Microsoft; so I'm inclined to believe it is safe; but it's also possible that the site where I purchased the software became corrupted; how do you ever know?
Also, to support the site corruption theory, before buying Driver Update, I bought Advanced Driver Updater from Herman Street, and as I was downloading it, Webroot Anti-Virus software stopped the process and had to remove the infection from my computer. Herman Street apologized and immediately refunded my money without question.
I would appreciate any insights into this issue.
