So on my PC I run Avast Driver Updater, Avast Cleanup and Avast Free Antivirus alongside CCleaner, and I've been experiencing command prompt interrupts randomly during normal use of my PC, it appears to be trying and failing to run DriverSetupUtility files for Gateway, Acer, HP etc. I have to assume that Avast Driver Updater installed these drivers and is causing these issues, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to find and remove these files from the system, anyone else experiencing a similar issue? Please help.

I would advice against drivers updaters. Drivers should be updated when they fix a bug or introduced a well needed feature. Otherwise they could introduce bugs, incompatibility and even stop hardware from performing properly.

Hi there, Driver Updater is designed to safely update over 127,000 drivers and shouldn't be causing any issues. Our support team can help you with this to determine what's going on.
