Is there a question?

I didn't see a question in your post.

I have to wonder why you would want to download anything from that web site. My browser security add-on, WOT, (Web of Trust), tells me to stay away from it.

couldn't download because site not found which is 404 error.
The other came from microsoft downloads and in bad news. Norton 360 went crazy but safe.

They are both the same web site

so I am not sure what you mean by 'The other came from Microsoft downloads'.

If Norton went crazy, why do you still want to download from there, or even visit there? Norton is trying to tell you something.

For my part I wouldn't touch that site with a barge pole.


I've just noticed. You gave the same link twice.

@ booksbenji and Mark,


Why have a malware security program on your computer if one chooses to ignore it? What is the point of that?

Site was infected two months ago, still is infected today.

I'd stay away. That way I do not have to fix what is not broken.

P. S. Please have a moderator make the link not clickable to protect innocent members.

Never use a program like this to update drivers. Do it yourself.

Norton does like these type of programs. Might be the reason your getting 404 error.
