We are provider of USB dongle and for that we developed drivers, so while installing driver on windows 8 Operating system AVG 2014 detect our driver installer executable as threat however the executable is properly signed using Digital Cert. Driver installer executable used the Win32 API's to install the drivers.

Please advise how to overcome this issue. Let us know if you need further details about our driver executable.

Thanks for quick reply.

- Tried our driverinstaller executable with Jotti Virusscan and Virustotal both found nothing (means no threat found).
- Also submitted the executable at http://samplesubmit.avg.com, yet no reply from the AVG.
- Nothing found for Special cases of incorrect detection, nothing found for incorrectly detected registry in regedit and "AVG 2013: C:\ProgramData\AVG 2013\IDS\quarantine\" is blank.

- Our driverInstaller executable shared at https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8xTxUwFWwCZRElYdnZXeGFyMFk/edit?usp=sharing
- Please try with executable and help us why it shows as threat.

OK, Your info will be analysed by the AVG Team - Brno @ their earliest convenience. Currently there may also be a slight response time delay due to a forum postings backlog build-up.

Update.. Please see top of this webpage. You may not have noticed but this forum has now been virtually closed down to become 'read only'. Perhaps you may wish to now post @ 'AVG Community' http://www.avg.com/support (Scroll Down).
