    Default Driver Alert - AVG is trying to install DMIOSPTIMUA

    Contacted AVG and they say they have no such driver.

    Google search returns nothing for DMIOSPTIMUA

    I disallowed it because I thought if odd that AVG would update a driver outside of a normal update.

    Anyone have any ideas - I will be running every virus/spyware program I have tonight in the meantime.

    Thanks

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Pro
    Software Version:6.5

    If Grisoft (AVG)was not familiar with it, then it was good computing that you did not allow it. Were you doing an update that triggered it?

    No. I had Opera, Firefox, Notetab, Mailwasher and Photoshop open but had done no surfing for several hours, just photo editing. The sites that were open in Opera and Firefox were my own site that is just plain vanilla html ( no scripts at all) and one other very reputable site.

    I've been getting a lot of alerts the last two weeks for a variety of driver updates.

    Do an online scan at www.ewido.net to make sure that there is no malware present on your system.
