Where does Secure Driver Updater come from?

The first system security issue comes up very quickly as you want to access the official website at If you have a security program installed, chances are you will not be able to visit this site as it will be blocked right away as a dangerous website. Now, this is rather suspicious and should be enough for you to want to delete Secure Driver Updater from your computer if you have already installed it. Of course, if your PC is unprotected, you may be able to access this site and download the installer without any issues. The truth is that we do not think that this standalone installer brings any real threat to your computer. However, it can be found in freeware bundles, which definitely presents a more serious system security issue; in fact, multiple issues.

You can download such bundles when you use a suspicious file-sharing page (torrent or shareware) to download cracked or free programs. Or, when you land on a shady website that promotes way too many third-party ads. These sites are normally related to online gaming, betting, dating, file-sharing, and porn. It is enough for you to click on the wrong third-party ad and you could either directly drop a malicious bundle onto your system or get redirected to a malicious page that can trick you into downloading it. Such a software package may contain PUPs, adware programs, browser hijackers, Trojans, fake alerts, and even ransomware programs. This is why it is essential that after you delete Secure Driver Updater, you run a full system malware scan using a free online scanner to determine how serious your threat level is.

However, our research also indicates that there have been reports of potentially unreliable third-party ads and redirections induced by this software. We have not been able to reproduce this while testing so we cannot really confirm it. The truth is that the main issue with this program is that it can come on board with infection that may actually pose a real threat to your system security.
