Question

Driver Navigator

I had a pop up yesterday from Driver navigator. I've not installed this to my knowledge. Ran a Panda virus scan and all was good. Noticed that in my programs Driver Navigator is there. Went to uninstall it and another box popped up saying 'are you sure you want to remove this application and related blah, blah, blah' I didn't click yes b/c I wanted to be sure that wasn't suspicious. Anyone have this show up on their PC?

Re: driver navigator

If you don't need it (and why should you?) it should be safe to uninstall.

No.

I run a tight ship and will look over not only the installed apps in the control panel but check the Program Files for rogues.

If I don't use an app, it's gone.

Thanks for my peace of mind. It's gone bye bye.

Unless you downloaded this product then more than likely it came bundled with some other software you did download.

It is best whenever you install a new piece of software to not use the default install but rather to click on the advanced install.

This might allow you to see if there is going to be something extra included and the ability to opt out of the extra.

Some of that extra stuff can be a stinker to remove if you let it install.
