Hi Do you have the ASUS Live Update Utility Installed ? ...

I did have a look on the Asus Website .. To see if they have had any recent Drivers Updates ..


They sure do not have any for your USB ..


Only thing they seem to have recent is BIOS Updates ...

Motherboard manufacturers tend to stop updating drivers at the download section for older hardware. You have better chances of finding latest drivers on download section of newer models or chipset manufactures.

I suggest using Snappy Driver Installer to identify, download and install latest drivers. If you need further assistance, you can attach its logs here.

No, i don't have that update utility installed , i have never updated my bios, is that something that i need to do?

I included a screenshot of device manager , i have disabled some of the services but i get the same message even when i enable them

I know your the developer of this program and i did look into it but your link was immediately flagged by Emsisoft anti malware as having (backdoor attributes).

It may be safe but i am always extremely skeptical about brand new unproven programs

Are your USB 3 Ports working ? ...


There are BIOS Updates .. But that is not some thing i would recommend ..


Your issue is not that serious and i do not see the BIOS Update fixing it ...


Unless your USB 3 Ports are not working ..

It's a false positive:
https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/e...is/1410541945/

I have no idea what why it was flagged. Also I don't know many people who are using Emsisoft. It must be not very widely used in my parts of the world. If you provide more detailed information about the alert, I will be able to send Emsisoft a letter to deal with it.

Snappy Driver Installer is Open Source so you can audit the source code for malicious activity and if you don't trust compiled binaries, you can compile it yourself.

Well the USB 3.0 ports have always worked but at times that message still came up. I decided to check the driver and scanned it then followed the instructions to download.

That took care of the message and all seems fine , is it necessary to uninstall the driver thats in there before installing the new one , because i didn't .

I am on a free trial of Emsisoft at the moment but i have been a long time Kaspersky user before . Trying to figure out which one uses less resources , hard to tell . I will uninstall Emsisoft soon and try Kaspersky again.

I figured it was a false positive , i think your program sounds excellent and am looking forward to trying it , i hate Slimdrivers and i don't like doing it one by one either , takes too long.
