    Thanks for your report.

    You may please install the newest version from http://update.iobit.com/dl/driver_booster_setup.exe to see if it still be detected as PUP.

    For your information, PUP is a very controversial topic since it also makes legit programs as PUP. And we have contacted MBAM to resolve the PUP issue of our Advanced SystemCare several months ago but the flag is still there. So it would be better if you can also help us by asking Malwarebytes to remove this detection.

    THANKS.

      Thanks for your response. And yes I already purchased Driver Booster v5 but will not install it until all 3 of my computers are together. I want to make sure I can activate all 3 installs at the same time. For some reason with Driver Booster v4 it wouldn't activate on the third computer saying I've reached my limit. There was a gap of a few months between installs though, so just playin' it safe....

      Thanks again.

        Hi,
        Very sorry for the late reply.
        If your license code is for 3 PCs, we can guarantee that it can be used to activate the PRO version on three computers at the same time.
        If you have any problem about the license code, you may please email us via dbfeedback@iobit.com. We will help accordingly.

          I have Advanced SystyemCare v. 11.03.186 and my Malwarebytes 3.3.1 keeps quarantining all ASC files... there are some registry entries it's quarantined as well which may, or may not be part of ASC... I tried to make exclusions for everything I can positively id as ASC, but i'm concerned about excluding ones I can't positively ID.

          Here's the report:
